There are plenty of places in El Paso to enjoy buffets at. Plus, the variety of options we have like pizza, salads, or places with a little bit of everything. We have enjoyed CiCi's Pizza, Soup, or Salad at Souper Salad, and Golden Corral that offers a little bit of everything.

But years ago Furr's had several locations open then eventually in time closed each one. Another buffet favorite that served a lot of everything existed in different parts of town. Furr's on the Westside once was where Peter Piper Pizza is on N. Mesa St. and Balboa Rd. before they closed.

Then the location off Dyer St. closed their Northeast location. Which then left the one and only location left. Furr's definitely broke some hearts after closing their doors. Well, Furr's no longer exists on the Eastside of town near Tinseltown.

It is unsure if the restaurant plans to move to another location or if they're closing the doors for good. Furr's always had business every single they were open. Some of us are hoping deep down inside Furr's can make a return since they had the best everything from appetizers to food and dessert.

There are others who also enjoyed grubbing at Furr's on weekends with family or friends. Now when you Google Furr's it shows temporarily closed instead of permanently closed. So does this mean we can still have hope about Furr's making a comeback in the future? What confuses me is how other buffets are still open except for them.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
