Local immigration attorney and family behind burger spot in East El Paso – About Your Online Magazine


EL PASO Texas (KTSM) – A local immigration lawyer and his family have transformed an old 7-Eleven gas station into a thriving hamburger business in East El Paso.

The restaurant is the product and passion of the local lawyer Enrique Garcia and his family who renewed and opened the business in the midst of the global pandemic. They have opened their doors and are presenting their view of classic American cuisine to the public.

The establishment is called Burger Brothers in reference to the Garcia family, including his brother Edgar, son Ricky and nephew Julian.

“That was always a vision, a dream of mine”, Garcia. “I worked for many years at Whataburger and had a passion for cooking. I wanted to try something like that. And, provide a different touch. Something accessible to people and of high quality. ”

This cafeteria offers a wall of beer and wine that allows customers to choose what they want to drink and how much. Paid for an ounce, guests can grab cold glasses and serve themselves alcoholic beverages.

Garcia says the team sanitizes dispensers after a customer uses them as a health and safety measure. And there are locally produced alcoholic beverages to try, including Cervejaria El Paso and Deadbeach.

The idea for the restaurant started when Garcia was looking to open a franchise. When those plans failed, he decided to take his ideas and open the business independently.

He says there are plans to open other locations in the near future and hopes to introduce the concept to customers. Soon, there will be a drive-thru window for customers to place orders.

And the guests will be able to fill the growlers with their favorite alcoholic drinks in the restaurant.
