I got the pulled pork sandwich and it was soooo good! The bread they used soaked up the juices and didnt get soggy, had a nice toast to it. Also got side of the potato salad, very tasty. More...

Fantastic Feast! Family-friendly atmosphere, attentive and courteous staff, and some magic happening in the kitchen. The smoked meats here are beautifully done, full of flavor, tender, moist. The Sunday Brunch is very satisfying. It's a brand new place, and not "fancy", but I'm blown away by the high quality of the food and the vision of the owner, Luis Leal. I've seldom seen a restaurant business or team more committed to making a positive impact on the community. This place is one to watch! Conveniently located in the new Canyon shopping and dining development just east of I-10 near Paseo del Norte and Resler. More...

First time here with a work cohort.  Simple, but fulfilling menu.  Had the Ahi Tuna Salad.  Nice piece of fish prepared perfectly.  A surprise since this is mostly a BBQ establishment.  My friend had the sausage sandwich.  Looked great and the portion was ample.  Meal came with a fountain drink.  Looking forward to bringing my wife and trying new items on the menu.  Staff was efficient and helpful.  Very decent lunch.  Thank you.

I took the family out to the Blue Mule for lunch the other day. I wasn't too sure what to expect because when I saw them building it, I thought it was a sporting goods store. While I was a little disappointed when I found out it was a restaurant, that feeling didn't last once I tasted the food! We were greeted at the door by two helpful and friendly employees who told us all about the food and restaurant, then took our order. The restaurant could be described as BBQ restaurant, but they talk about its selections more as campfire cooking. They do a good job of being extremely family friendly without being while not being what you might think of as a kiddie restaurant. Family friendliness seems to be a company value rather than a sales gimmick. There is plenty of seating, both indoors and out, with booths and tables. There is room for larger groups and it would have to be extremely busy before you would have to wait for a table. So, don't steer clear just because it's a busy time of day or there are a bunch of cars in the parking lot.We settled on a few items from the Smokehouse Express portion of the menu. I had the Chicken Sandwich with sides of Veggies and Mac and Cheese, while my wife ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich with sides of Beans and Potato Salad. To drink there was a refrigerator with a selection of mini beers a fountain drink station featuring Pepsi products, tea and juices were also available. While we waited my daughter really enjoyed snacking on the packets Goldfish Crackers that were provided free at each table. The food arrived relatively quickly. Both of the sandwiches were heaped with delicious meat and the sides we reasonably portioned and tasty.After lunch we enjoyed burning a few calories outside on the playground. I'm not sure if this playground is part of the restaurant or the property, because it's in a common area of the building. It's not a playground with traditional equipment, there are several different pieces of equipment to ride on and there is a thick squishy rubber floor in case of falls.Overall we were very impressed with the restaurant and will definitely be going back. I think next time we have all the family from out of town come in it would be a good place to take everybody for good food and a place for the kids to play.I recommend giving the Blue Mule a try, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Loved the kid friendly, relaxed atmosphere! Food was good- serving sizes appropriate. Not the biggest fan of the sweet potato tots, but the potato salad was delicious! The pulled pork sandwich was delicious- love the ability for kids to play outside while you eat on the patio! We needed another kid friendly restaurant in the neighborhood! More...

Coming from central Texas where cowboy cooking and barbecue are on every corner, I was very pleasantly surprised to find this new place with a great vibe inside and out. I ordered a beef sandwich (comes sliced) and sweet potato tots while my husband ordered a pulled pork sandwich and green chili mac and cheese. Both sandwiches were delicious but I had to grab more sauce. The sweet potato tots were awesome and the Mac and cheese had a great flavor. Since this is a new place and I think the owners are still figuring out what works for their customers, I would suggest a little larger portions for the sides and additional outdoor seating- maybe even a bar table like what's inside. I can confidently say my family will be back to enjoy more of what this menu has to offer. More...

The Blue Mule Outfitters came highly recommended to us by its landlord, so of course we had to try out this highly anticipated new barbecue place in northwest El Paso in the booming Cimarron community off I-10 and Artcraft Rd. Our party of 4 was eagerly greeted at the door by a young man who showed us to a table. It was early, around 6:00 p.m. (Friday), so the restaurant wasn't very busy yet. He briefly explained the concept to us and handed us two menus (why not four?). The explanation was helpful, as the menu was impossible to understand, lacking much needed detail. For example, some of the entrees come with a complimentary soft drink--others do not. This was not made clear on the menu, but was explained by our server. Several items on the menu with obscure names begged description. We had to wait to make selections until we requested a server to come explain. After the server explained the details, and the confusion was cleared somewhat, we got down to ordering.For appetizers, we ordered "tips and ends". We were served sausage slices and thick slices of brisket. Here's where a description of BMO's spin on "tips and ends" may have been helpful. I might add that the sausage and brisket were quite good. But... Burnt ends are flavorful pieces of meat cut from the "point" half of a smoked brisket. Tips are the short, meaty sections of rib that are attached to the spare ribs and usually cut off when the ribs are trimmed St. Louis style. Since the BMO's spin on Tips and Ends is a distant departure from the traditional preparation, diners should be forewarned! We ordered spare ribs and brisket sandwiches with various sides including green chile mac 'n cheese, steamed broccoli, asparagus, and cole slaw. The ribs and brisket were quite good, but not extraordinary in any way, and the sides were unremarkable. The brisket sandwich was topped with sauteed mushrooms, jalepeno peppers, and onions. Once again, the spin on the traditional should have been noted on the menu. The menu features some Mexican twists for those patrons seeking south-of-the-border options. We didn't try any. The brisket sandwich was served on a buttered, toasted sesame bun. Again, really a pretty okay sandwich. I was sort of wishing we had ordered a truly unique item on the menu, a 3-lb bone-in rib-eye--large enough for 3 or 4 persons by my thinking. We saw one that another table had ordered at if it tasted as good as it looked, it must have been wonderful.There were a couple of service miscues, but nothing worth mentioning in detail. The servers were all very friendly. Overall, we had a very good experience at the BMO and we will likely return to try the 3-lb rib-eye and see if some of the minor kinks are worked out. The BMO serves beer and wine and has a generous $5 corkage policy for those who wish to bring their own wine although very few wines hold up to barbecue. The affordable corkage is a nice gesture nonetheless. Customers are also welcome to bring their own beer, according to our server. The website is frustratingly similar to the menu in certain respects. Little thought was put into its functionality, design, grammar, punctuation, or user experience. It would be impossible to place an order directly from the website without calling for assistance. The site also has a weird style that uses both upper and lower case letters somewhat randomly throughout. now That's kind Of strange!  While I'd like to see the BMO succeed--it's run by a local family that seems to lack restaurant management experience. I'm afraid they are going to need to execute far better as they gain experience. Rudy's, just across I-10, is a tough competitor and will give the BMO a run for its money. Very different models to be certain. Both serve compelling barbecue. My wife made an interesting observation. She speculated that the owners may have started with a food truck--which requires only good food to be successful. Opening and running a successful restaurant requires a substantially broader skillset. We've seen many restaurants run by people who started with a food truck fail - and many succeed. The BMO was only open for three days before our visit, so minor issues were not unexpected--or overlooked either. I suspect the service miscues, menu, and website issues will be eventually be corrected, as they were not only somewhat annoying, but will potentially cost them business if left unaddressed. More...
