EL PASO, TX — Journalist Laurel Miller, who while writing for American Cowboy magazine, ended up in El Paso to write an article about boot making. In a quest to find the best Mexican food around, she was pointed towards H & H Cafe and Carwash and L & J Cafe, an AOL story reported.
The May 28 story said, "For over 50 years, this Formica and aqua-and-orange-hued dive near downtown has been dishing up El Paso's best chile rellenos. It's a car wash, yes. But the 'coffee shop' has a single counter, and just three small tables. There's a token flat-top grill that's clearly seen a lot of use."
What did Miller think of the food? "The food is heavenly," she wrote. In fact, she went here three times in four days. "I showed up to stuff myself on everything from earthy, potato-studded Chile Colorado to the aforementioned rellenos (a dish I normally dislike, since it too often resembles and tastes like oil-soaked socks) Even the salsa verde, a chunky, firey rendition, is amazing."
