A Mexican food tradition since 1940 has grown
into more than 75 restaurants, including more than
25 franchise locations. The El Chico story began
when Adelaida Cuellar's homemade tamales drew
huge crowds at a small county fair in 1926.
Her sons opened a cafe in Dallas,
following their mother's
recipes for enchiladas
with chile con carne
sauce. Today, El Chico
is still serving top-quality
Mexican food favorites with
fresh new specialties of today.
