A touch of Ireland bistro makes it to the city

The Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery is located at 1501 N. Zaragoza in East El Paso.

The Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, a Scot-Irish-themed sports pub, was originally scheduled to break ground in West El Paso September 2014, but the opening is scheduled for late February or early March at 1501 N. Zaragoza.

The Phoenix-based restaurant chain has 94 locations in the U.S. and Canada, including five Texas locations. The sports bar will be opening its first prototype of the new design in El Paso. 

“It will still tie into the original theme, but with a more modern Celtic design,” said April Cano-Medina, director of marketing and hiring for the pub.

The new restaurant will feature an outdoor patio, and they will showcase professional and college sports action year-round on all of their HD screens throughout the pub.

Their website said the Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery offers a delicious menu with more than 30 draft and bottled beers to choose from.

The food menu will consist of classic items, such as burgers and wings, but will also feature signature selections such as fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, Dublin Irish stew, and a variety of pizzas, sandwiches and seafood items.

The website did not say if they will continue with their plans of opening their West side location, but they plan to open three future sites in El Paso within the next few years.

Cano-Medina said they are still holding interviews for new applicants and are looking to hire about 100 new employees.

“We are excited about bringing the brand of the Tilted Kilt to El Paso,” she said. “Our fun, festive atmosphere makes us the go-to place to watch sports, enjoy a cold beer and hang out with friends.”

Some might question what will make this sports bar more appealing than other restaurants that follow the same concept, such as Hooters and Twin Peaks.

“We’re more than just a restaurant and so much more than a sports bar,” Cano-Medina said. “What makes us different is the great food menu, friendly service and unique environment.”
