Some people think we need to spend a half a billion dollars to make El Paso an attractive place to live.
Not me. I know better. El Paso rocks, if you know how to use it.
El Paso takes a special skill set that might be difficult to acquire if you lived someplace else. But I’m going to let you in on El Paso’s secrets. And I’ll invite you to share these secrets with whomever you want to love El Paso like I do.
Here’s a secret:
Behind this nondescript store front the Hernandez family is kicking out some great sausages. Bratwurst. Polish sausage. Even some more regional flavors, like Green Chile and Asadero.
According to the ingredient list posted inside, the Sausage Shop doesn’t use some of the more questionable ingredients that can be found in supermarket sausages. Stuff like eyeballs, and lymph glands, and, as the famous saying goes, “everything but the squeal.”
The Sausage Shop is located in the heart of El Paso’s culinary district, right between Roscoe’s Burgers and Chico’s Tacos, and around the corner from Whataburger. On Tompkins, between Dyer and Fort. It’s open from 11:00 to 5:00, Tuesday through Saturday, so plan accordingly.
