We ate supper here while getting ready for trade days. Ordered the chips and queso to start. Got the OR water to drink. Great water. Queso came out fast and hot. Different than regular Tex-mex queso. Had some different spices they added to it like they thought they had to add some flavor. Not the best but not the worst.... More

If you you are looking for good comfort food and friendly service EJ's is a small town favorite. Small restaurant with a mom and pops decor. There is also outside dining. Get their early at lunch time or you'll probably have to wait.

We came to this restaurant for a short business meeting and I was very impressed with how accessible it was off of the exit. By themselves, the chips and queso appetizer are worth the 2 minute diversion off of I-20. Heck, they are worth a 20 minute diversion. Their onion rings are HUGE and delicious. I tried the chicken finger... More

Just 15 minutes out of Midland. If you are in the area and want to have an amazing meal, you have to go there. Best pork loin and creamy corn ever! Service outstanding Sam was great!

I have had the pleasure of eating in restaurants all over Texas...in various states (including Hawaii)....and never has my palate enjoyed food better than EJs. If you are driving through Stanton, Texas; make a point to find this quaint eating establishment to delight in fine foods. Awesome service, to boot!!!

Eps is the BEST restaurant in Stanton by far! It has the most selection than any other pace in Stanton. The grilled chicken salad is amazing! The onion rings, the bbq.... EVERYTHING is top notch! And it should be since it's all prepared by Eric, a chef from Houston Tx!
