New Olive Garden Restaurant Coming to Northeast El Paso. Here’s When It’s Expected to Open
Northeast El Paso Breadstick Nation, rejoice. There’s an Olive Garden restaurant opening soon on your side of town. "Wait, what? On our side of town?" exclaimed everyone who lives in the northeast in disbelief.
Many who call that part of town home are both shocked and pleasantly surprised as the general feeling is that the northeast is the city’s unwanted step-child as often as it gets passed over by so many retailers.
When Will Can Northeast Expect Unlimited Breadsticks?
The newest Olive Garden at 4800 Woodrow Bean Drive will be the fourth in El Paso. The three currently slinging pasta are located at 1870 Joe Battle in the El Paseo Marketplace, in the Cielo Vista Mall parking lot, and on Sunland Park Drive in the Sunland Park Mall parking lot.
The national chain known for its “Tour of Italy” plates, “Never Ending Pasta Bowl” meal deals, and unlimited soup, salads, and breadsticks is targeting a February 28 opening, according to the Olive Garden website.
Northeast El Paso Seeing Long Overdue Growth
Northeast El Paso has been undeserved by businesses for years, but more shopping and dining establishments are opening locations in the area or announcing plans to do so spurred in part by the Cohen Reimagination project and the Camp Cohen water park.
And it’s not just restaurants. A residential community that will includes homes and apartments, a school, and a hike and bike trail system is currently being developed near Painted Dunes Golf Course.
