Yes, it's and old building and has been an El Paso institution for years. Overlook HOW the restaurant looks and focus on the food. It's excellent, true Mexican food!

Connected by a couple of doors the Kings X and Lucy’s share a common brick and mortar building. I had the opportunity to stop by one night and sat at the bar drinking $1.75 cold drafts. This guy walks up, Ted, and we start talking. Turns out this guy was the owner of the place. Nicest person and most unassuming guy you can imagine. After a few beers I ordered some food and believe it or not it wasn’t bad at all. Some say they have gotten sick, I had no issues, in fact I have returned many times. Kings X is not for the weak of heart. The place is a Southwestern version of Cheers with a little biker bar attitude thrown in. The bartenders know everyone and all in all it is a pretty decent place to hang out and watch a game. If you are looking for fancy table clothes, waiters/waitresses with coats and ties don’t stop by. If you want a cold brew at a fair price and good food at a fair price, this is where you want to be. Enjoy!

Lucy's is very addicting!!!!! Yes they are a hole in the wall but thats what made it taste soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo GOOD!!!! It's a family run business my boyfriend and I ate there every morning!!! We have many friends in El Paso who eat there all the time for the past 20 years and NOONE ever got sick!!! Maybe someone below had too much to drink the night before?? Lucy's is amazing home cooked style food!!!
