My name is Gizeh Lara; I have just graduated from UTEP this past week, and I and my officers (I was class President) were in charge of planning our ceremony last Friday. By means of very good friends of mine (thank you guys) I came into contact with the Golden Corral Catering manager, Bernice Jackson. I just want to say that she and her staff did an amazing job for our ceremony. Not only did they cater for an expected 200 people, but they went above and beyond their duties; our ceremony ran a bit longer than expected and Bernice and her amazing staff stayed until every last person that attended our ceremony was served. That was how the day ended: Let me tell you how it started. They arrived right when they said they would to set up, they then set up in almost no time at all, and were ready to serve before our ceremony even began. Bernice was simply outstanding both in professionalism and decorum. She was instrumental in the success of our ceremony, given that catering had been such a big issue to deal with since so many people were to attend and she was always understanding of our situation as students and found the best menu to serve so that we met our budgeting guidelines. The guests that attended congratulated me and expressed that the food served was delicious and catering service outstanding. I highly recommend Golden Corral's catering service to any student organization or to any individual who is planning to serve any type of meal for any occasion. Saying that Bernice and her staff were phenomenal is an understatement. I would just like to thank you very much Bernice and Golden Corral for the wonderful service you provided for such an important and meaningful occasion for an entire graduating class; I have recommended you to the next year's class and hope that things will work out so that they can benefit from your incredible service. Thank you very much on behalf of my class and myself.
The food harkened back to the early 20th century recipes of Cantonese Chinese foods that emigrated to the U.S. from Canada and from China itself. The egg foo young dishes were incredibly authentic, together with a tasty gravy that held even a persnickety eater like myself in awe. All of the other dishes, chicken wings, chop suey, chow mein, lo mein, and the elaborate Dragon meets Phoenix steamy dish held up under lots of scrutiny. The restaurant itself had quite an El Paso history, dating to the 1960s when the Chinese Blossom was originally at the corner of Trowbridge and Montana, then moved to its present location, and the kids then took it over and turned it into Lo's Blossom. Sadly, 2010 opens with the restaurant forever closed, two owners have since taken the location, but have not really done much with it.
Are you looking for a place to unwind and party after a long day at the office? Well, the locally owned and operated Grahams corner is just the place for you to go to have a great time with friends and even make new friends offers a very fun and relaxed atmosphere without the pretentiousness you find at other places nearby. There is a variety of music styles in the jukebox offering something for everyone. The employees are friendly and outgoing. The place doesn't smell like vomit. i have been there for more than 10 years.
