I am new to El Paso and 13 Aug 2014, was my 1st time eating at Tony's. I have been looking for some quality Bar-B-Que in town and have found my place. Tony's you did a great Job and impressed me with your quality of Food and Service. My wife and kids showed up right before closing and they still served us just like they had just opened and we had a wonderful time eating and talking to the staff. Tony's I have tried over 9 different Bar-B-Que places in the area, but you area our #1. See you all soon!!




the service was great! I ordered a brisket sandwich with potato salad and a drink they cut my sandwich right in front of me just when I ate my sandwich there wasnt any fat and it wasnt dry it was delicious I can't wait to go back
