For a quick meal one can have a variety to choose from. The price are reasonable and the meals are tasty.

A self service, purchase by weight quick serve restaurant which as built a quick reputation for value, consistency and great food. The concept is simple while options are wide enough to stop for lunch daily without having the same meal twice all week. Great spot.

I just LOVE El Pecos. I think they provide the best home cooked meal you can get outside of home. I don't buy food from any and everybody, but I've been buying from El Pecos closing on a decade now. The fact that they are...More
