So sad to learn this restaurant has been sold. We had a great sandwich and great chat with the owner. It will be sad to see this great place leave the area. We just happened to stumble upon it by chance, and were very thankful we did!

Wow. We drove over Woodrow Bean Transmountain Dr to get there and it was worth it. As soon as we walked through the open door, we were greeted with a smile. I didn't take much of a look through the menu, just ordered what he was having. I was not disappointed. It was one of the best sandwiches I've had.

Had the Philly Cheese Steak on Wheat. Choice Rib-Eye piled high. Tasty and filling. Service was great and the staff is very friendly.

I'd been craving an authentic Cuban Press since I left Florida and had been settling for the decent ones served at Bikini Joe's (by the airport). I found Maracas through UrbanSpoon and discovered it is the ONLY Caribbean cuisine in El Paso, so the wife and I shot over there for lunch this afternoon. Upon arrival I realized it was... More

Maracas is a little gem situated in Shorty’s gas station (yes it's in a gas station) behind the outlet mall in Canutillo, TX (a few miles West of El Paso, TX city limits), run by a native from Puerto Rico. As a native Miamian (Florida not Ohio) I can tell ya that this is the BEST Cuban sandwich outside of... More
