If you've watched the Food Network or the Travel Channel you've certainly seen some local food places get shown to a wider audience. But exactly how many have been shown on tv & on which shows?

if you've watch Diners, Drive Ins & Dives with Guy Fieri, you've definitely seen a couple. In fact the Food Network restaurant has listed 9 online, 7 of which have been shown on Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives :

There were 3 episodes featured on the Cooking Channel's Taco Trip: on the Season 2 Episode 2 "El Paso", chef Aaron Sanchez returned to his hometown to visit Tacoholics (sadly they moved to San Antonio & had to close down), Lucy's and of course Chico's Tacos. Aaron himself would further show his love for Chico's in the show "Best Thing I Ever Ate".

6 places were shown on Delicious Destinations with Andrew Zimmern (Monika went into great detail on what Andrew ordered from each restaurant on her article):

And of course we cant' forget about The Texas Bucket List.

They've made a total of 14 stops in El Paso. Including:

Rosa's Cantina

Panda Burgers

H&H Car Wash

Cattleman's Steakhouse


Monteleone's Ristorante

Great American Steakburger

Hallelujah BBQ

and of course... Chico's Tacos (who definitely is the one shown on tv the most).

I can't wait to see what the next local restaurant shown on tv will be!
