Borderland Burger Joints :: The Best Burgers in El Paso & Beyond


For as long as I’ve been alive, juicy, cheesy, and greasy burgers have been a staple for me. Don’t know what to eat? A burger is always a good idea.

Don’t forget the infamous side–nice, golden, and crispy french fries. Dipped in your choice of sauce, salsa, or condiment. Personally, I like queso. My husband will always choose ketchup.

So without further ado, a compiled list (and some order suggestions) of burgers in the Sun City aka El Paso, TX.
