Lancer Hall: An experience in luxury, elegance
By Joe Olvera ©, 2012
If you want to experience a unique dining experience, if you want to partake in a philosophy that says: “come as customers, leave as family,” then Lancer Hall is the place for you. At Lancer Hall, located at 3135 Trawood Drive, the staff believes in upholding exceptional quality service and in providing the absolute best service and amenities in El Paso. The superb kitchen offers for the discerning palate top grade beef and seafood selections, specialty and classic desserts, fine wines, and specialty and signature drinks.
Not only does the dining room offer succulent dishes prepared by Chef Alfonso Tiscareno, but it also presents its culinary arts in an elegant setting that accommodates between 190 to 220 guests, and even up to 600 for extra special events. This particular area includes a highly romantic venue with a lighted fountain and bonfire – a setting that makes for ideal outdoor ceremonies, such as weddings, quinceaneras, and other special celebrations creating for the lucky persons a lifetime of memories. And don’t forget the musical extravaganza that is provided on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the Mariachi Estrella, featuring Jose Aleman. This mariachi group features your favorite Mexican tunes, both modern and oldies but goodies. The dining room is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Saturday.
Paola Garcia, Lancer Hall’s Marketing Director, said the dining experience opened April 23, 2012, and it already is gaining a reputation for high-class, but reasonable accommodations. “We don’t have anything special planned for Halloween because we have two other events scheduled,” Garcia said. “Our main concern is pleasing our clients and making sure that they undergo the best possible experience. We even have an event scheduled in which Army personnel from Fort Bliss will be involved.” Garcia, daughter of the owner, said she has a Marketing Degree from UT El Paso, having graduated from the university last December.
“Our prices are very reasonable, even though we offer fine dining for gourmets and just regular folks,” Garcia said. “We’re just like a regular restaurant, but, on a higher plane.” Garcia said her dad also is part owner of the Vista Hills Country Club, and has other restaurants in El Paso, in Odessa and in Juarez. “It’s challenging to run an operation like this, especially since we took it over. I find myself explaining to customers about the new ownership. Our plans, however, are to continue doing what we’re doing, and that means offering exclusive, elegant service at reasonable prices.”
