It's been 28 years since Cracker Barrel opened its doors in West El Paso. As Eastlake Marketplace Center continues to expand, a second location will soon open for eastside fans to enjoy.

Since announcing it was opening last November, construction delays have slowed the opening date for the new Cracker Barrel location. However, as they say, slow progress is still progress, and in preparation, management is hosting a job fair to fill all positions at the new restaurant.


The new 10,000+ square-foot building (plus front porch) will accommodate 170 guests at once, offering quality home-style food and an in-store unique shopping experience requiring hiring over 100 full and part-time employees.

As a matter of fact, Cracker Barrel is hosting a job fair this week with open positions ranging from servers to hostesses and all customer service positions.

How to Drive Into the Eastlake Butch Bros During Construction

While Amazon's distribution center continues to take over the Eastlake shoppe center, Dutch Bros Coffee is suffering from certain barriers. I attempted to access the coffee shop from one of the main entrances of the shopping center but was denied. There are orange road blocks in the way to easily access Dutch Bros.

If you miss the only entrance to the Eastlake Dutch Bros Coffee location, you will then have to turn around and go to the Rojas stop light. From there you will then have to make a U-Turn.

Be sure to pay attention because if you are not careful, you will miss the entrance again.

I spoke with an employee at Dutch Bros Coffee who said they have been dealing with construction since their grand opening and are not sure when all entrances will be open. Until then, they stay positive and extremely helpful with serving up coffee, teas, smoothies and so much more to thirsty El Pasoans.
