El Paso Restaurants Featured on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives: Where Are They Now?
Delight El Paso – 502 North Oregon Street El Paso, TX 79901
Sadly Delight closed its doors in December of 2020. We suspect that the pandemic played a pivotal role in their closure, but no reason was shared on their social media platforms. The original airdate of their episode aired in September of 2019 when Guy Fieri stopped in to try the popular downtown spot.
Desert Oak Barbecue - 320 North Zaragosa Suite 105 El Paso, TX 79936
Guy Fieri brought his crew down in early 2019 to hit up Desert Oak Barbeque to try its popular loaded stuffed potato. Since his visit, this El Paso eatery is still going strong and serving up some of the best Central Texas Style Barbecue in town.
Kaedama - 204 Boston Avenue El Paso, TX 79902
In 2020 Kaedama was added to Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives list featuring their tasty ramen. Kaedama is still a favored hot spot for El Pasoans craving a bowl of authentic Japanese Ramen or a Sushi Burrito.
La Colonial Tortilla Factory - 212 North Copia Street El Paso, TX 79905
Since 1972 La Colonial Tortilla Factory has been serving up some of the freshest tortillas, burritos, and tamales. The tortilla factory is not only still open and proudly serving our community, but another celebrity chef, Pati Jinich, will feature the business in her upcoming two-part series titled, La Frontera, this Friday, October 15, 2021.
