Angry Owl Southwest Grill & Cantina

About

Angry Owl Southwest Grill & Cantina is a restaurant located in El Paso, Texas at 4799 North Mesa Street. They are open every day of the week.

The name Angry Owl is a tribute to a small owl that became irritated with a group of cowboys - as they sat around the campfire telling stories and imbibing in whiskey after a long day of work on the ranch. The owl, having to endure hours of tall tales and vulgar language, got its revenge by hooting and hollering while the cowboys tried to sleep, making for a restless night sleep. It wasn’t until the next evening when the cowboys went looking outside the bunkhouse to see what kept them up the night before. That's when they found a small elf owl. The following night, out of respect for the owl (and the desire for some shut eye), the cowboys kept their language clean and the whiskey to a short glass. Needless to say the cowboys enjoyed a good night sleep. And that, my friends, is how The Angry Owl got its name.
