Mariah Carey was in El Paso the other day for a quick bite before hopping on her tour bus and heading off to Dallas for a show the next day. The restaurant? P.F. Changs… and although the place is delicious, we think she could have taken advantage of some the delicious locally owned restaurants located here in El Paso.

Something that the general public probably doesn’t know is that tour agencies have a predetermined list of restaurants that they stop in at certain cities. P.F. Changs is a hotspot for celebrities cruising through El Paso on their way to their destination. But if they were just to drive a little future down I-10, they’d come across some of the cities best locally owned restaurants that offer food you likely won’t get at any of these national chains.
