This is a great place for barbeque, steaks and large portions of sides. The bread is wonderful and worth trying. This is also one of the few places where you can get a barbeque beef rib. I can recommend ordering any of the combination plates. We ordered a 5 meat platter and split it. It was plenty of food for... More

I'm just not crazy about smokey and spicy on everything. Atmosphere was really neat. I loved the paintings on the walls. The waitresses were really fantastic. The Cole slaw was great. Their special homemade bread that cost extra was not that special.Ribs were kind of dry.

I have been going to the State Line for my birthday dinner for more than 10 years. The food is always excellent and the service is the best. You wont find a better BBQ restaurant in El Paso.

You are at the same time in Texas and New Mexico. State line is not only great food (huge portions) but they have also nice atmosphere and interiors. Fully recommend

Was traveling from Houston to Phoenix via I-10. Stopped in El Paso for the night. Found State Line on Yelp. The restaurant sits right on the state line between Texas and New Mexico. Upon arrival we were greeted promptly. We ended up waiting about 15 minutes for a table. It was fairly crowded, but not packed. We opted for the... More

This is the long-time El Paso go-to place for BBQ and steaks for generations of locals and visitors. Many of the other famous Texas BBQ restaurants have a different shtick in that others tend to bare bones the whole BBQ experience, and that's nice. But Stateline is a sitdown restaurant with its own homey, olden, but well greesed shtick. Try... More

Good food, great ambiance - although a little pricey for what we received. I love the outdoor patio, with half of the property being in Texas, the other half New Mexico.

After many years of eating here for special occasions...really disappointed...ordered King Rib Platters...beef ribs & pork ribs were not close to being tender....nothing like they use to serve...the meat use to fall right off the bones....and the house bread was not fresh. With the price charged this was not what we expected..Never thought I would see such poor quality from... More

The State Line is an El Paso favorite. We like to take out of towners here because the food is great but the story is kinda cool too. The bar is in NM and the restaurant in Texas and its less than a mile to the Mexican border! The BBQ is always perfect. I always get the 2 or 3... More

Always the best experience. The service is always friendly, attentive, and right on. The ribs are the best I have ever had and I have never had a bad meal. A favorite whenever i want to show someone what Texas bbq is all about.
