The new Best Hole-in-the-Wall Restaurant is not new to What's Up's Best of the Best - Chico's won six categories this year alone. Chico's Tacos is not just a restaurant but a local experience - an immensely well-loved establishment which is on most El Pasoans' list of favorites. Standing in line is likely due to the high demand for their special touch on Mexican favorites. A place that's not always pretty, and maybe not everyone knows your name, but you're always sure of what you're gonna get: cheap good food, atmosphere and tradition. 1235 McRae Blvd., 915-592-8484; 3401 Dyer St., 915-565-5555; 4230 Alameda Ave., 915-533-0975, and additional locations.
