Billy Crews Sings The Blues

Once a true gem, Billy Crews is Santa Theresa, New Mexico seems to have become a tired listless mess. Most every appetizer and entree were both boring AND over-spiced but my companions' Tilapia may have the worst entree I have EVER tasted in ANY restaurant ANYWHERE. To add insult to injury, the waiter told us that this was the third Tilapia to be returned that evening and that perhaps it was a "bad pan". For a chef to let a dish so revoltingly salty and over-spiced out of his kitchen 3 times, speaks of deep troubling problems. On the way to our table, our hostess stepped over a large piece of cellophane between tables. As we left, it was still there. Billy Crews is far from almost everything in El Paso so the distance matters and with it clearly in free-fall, I would wonder how the mighty could have fallen so far so fast. Empty on a Saturday night, I only wish another Chowhound could have told me how awful Billy Crews has become. With gas costly and so many great steakhouses all over El Paso, Billy Crews needs a change and soon, as they wasted our evening in many ways!
