Odessa Texas has and always will be the very same. It is what it is, and no matter how much it changes, it will be always be here to serve its purpose. The town is tucked away deep in the guts of West Texas, the last bit of civilization on the long road to El Paso. For ages it has been many things, a home for blue collar workers of the Permian Basin oil fields, the first stop for drugs coming in from Mexico, and a place to go on Friday night. If you stop and listen you can hear the many sounds of the city, the lonesome whistle of a slow moving train, an old pumping unit reaching down for one more barrel of oil, or even the incredible sound of food being prepared. The wonderful smell of fajitas on the grill, steak sizzling with perfection, or delicious burgers being cooked over mesquite wood. Where people gather one must cook. In Odessa you will find many a oasis, the Mexican culture mixed with numerous other influences make for a foodies paradise. Places such as China-Mex, or Ben’s Little Mexico provide a local flavor only found out here in West Texas. In driving around doing research for this site, I did notice more and more shut down eateries. For a town in the mist of an oil boom, some parts don’t show it. My believe is that the newer francise players are taking in most of the business and forcing some of the smaller places to shutter up and close down. This site is built for the little guy, for the places that serve great food but don’t have the money for expensive marketing budgets. Please enjoy. Read these menus, hear the stories, taste the food. Go out and support local business!
