“A fresh relief from Mexican Cuisine in Texas...”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

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 the state of Florida. Menu includes standard gas station restaurant (is there such a thing?) fare e.g. hamburgers, wings, Philly Steak Sandwiches, plus old Caribbean standards like steak sandwiches, roast pork sandwiches and the likes. On the weekends batches of Puerto Rican favorites are prepared. Maracas is so good locals of Mexican descent visit this spot regularly to taste other variants of Spanish culture! Don’t miss it. One stop and you’ll be hooked. I know I am. Easy access from both I-10 East and West.
