Northwest El Paso is booming, too. More and more dining establishments are opening locations in the area or announcing plans to do so.

West Texas Chophouse has opened its third location down the road from West Town Marketplace next to Dutch Bros Coffee in The Four Corners at Cimarron.

If you are stackin’ loot and looking for an elegant place to fill up for lunch or dinner this is a must-stop.

The locally-owned steakhouse chain serves beef that is dry-aged in-house and butchered in its on-site butchery. And if the wait times for a table are any indication, El Pasoans are there for it.

Those craving comfort food need only drive down the street from WTC to Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen in the neighboring West Town Marketplace. Its second El Paso location is now open by Cabela's.

For years there was only one Cheddar's in El Paso at Las Palmas Marketplace, and I'm amazed it has taken this long for a second location to open.

The national chain is known for comfort classics like a chicken fried steak, ribs, and chicken pot pies made entirely from scratch, and a free round of fresh-baked Honey Butter Croissants for every table.

Panera Bread and Dion's Pizza will have locations in the area in the coming months.

The bakery-cafe chain Panera -- revered for its soups, salads, and sandwiches -- is currently under construction across from Cheddar's in the West Town Marketplace. It's expected to open by the end of the year.

Dion's, the popular New Mexico-based pizza chain loved by its customer for its pies and amazing ranch and Greek salad dressings, is planning a 5,000-square-foot free-standing building with a drive-thru on the northeast corner of Resler and Paseo del Norte, catty-corner to The Canyons at Cimarron.

No word on a timeline for its opening.
