People are waiting more than two hours to get a Charcoaler burger

All good things must come to an end. For El Paso’s first ever drive-thru, today is that day.

It’s been a good run. Fifty-five years to be exact. For many El Pasoan’s, waiting to get a final bite of the famous flame-grilled burgers is no problem — even if it means sitting in your car for more than two hours, which is what the wait time was Tuesday afternoon at the west El Paso fast food joint.

They close for good at 6 p.m.

“Today we will be open from 11 am – 6 pm, the line has been long and people are have been waiting about 2 hours. If you plan on coming in today please factor this in especially when it gets past 3 pm,” said a farewell Facebook post. “Again thank you El Paso and all of our supporters, we will truly miss you.”
