I'm at AJs place now. It's dead, its 2pm andit's dead. There is more workers than customers. He should've put it on the westside. I will give and update on the food. He has some nice arcades.

Do they have any healthy menu options? You were asking about healthy restaurants in El Paso recently. AJ made a big deal about UTEP needing to step up its game on nutrition; nutrition is very important to AJ. I'll bet his restaurant has some healthy options.

Might be out of EP but won't be a "star".
She's known here in Dallas too, saw people wearing her shirt. She's not Cardio B, but she's known throughout Texas at the very least. Well as far as kids who listen to that kinda of rap.

Well I tried the Spicey chicken sandwich. It was too spicey for me . My mom tried the green chilli burger. The burger was better. He has salads on his menu but not much healthy items. There is 8 waitress and 1 hostess and no customers. AJ is going to lose this place. He should've put it near UTEP.

My rating 1 being the lowest 10 the highest.

Food: 3
Location: 1
Cleanliness: 10
Lunch hour Atmosphere: 1
Talent:5

Overall score 4 rating.

Maybe in the evening there is more customers, but if I'm not mistaken for a restaurant to succeed you also need customers during noon to 3pm. That is lunch hour time. But I dont think I would come again. It is too far for us westsiders.

Should have put it inside 2023 Magic Landing fantasy world. Would have done gang busters inside a 40 year old, non-existent building.

You are in your 40's and I assume your Mom is in her 60's/70's. You both are not in the age group the restaurant is targeting.

Weekday lunch rush is typically over somewhere between 1:30-2pm, in my experience/from what I remember. Those aren't the shifts that bring in the money for the restaurant.

You went at 2 P.M. Most restaurants are dead at 2 P.M. during the week.
False Toros right next to AJs had more people. And that's another thing why would AJ put a burger joint right next to another burger place? Whoever suggested this location to AJ he should not take advice from them again.

How many people were inside Toros at 2 P.M. on a weekday?

My son went at night. Said it was crowded but he didn't have to wait to get in. Apparently, the dress code is dont look like a Thug or a bunch of frat boys with hats on backwards. He said people were dressed like people going out and he didn't see anyone rejected.

My assumption, like NoWins said, that the guys who got rejected at the door probably dressed like people who should be rejected at any door.

Always had to slip an extra $2 to payoff the bouncer at Reno’s in Juarez to get the homies in. Apparently Lugz shoes were not a good fit with the preppy crowd!

That door lady was ruthless. She didn’t let me and my friends in one time and me being young and drunk I called her a fat bitch. Needless to say I never got back in after that no matter how well I dressed..
