El Chico Menu and Prices updated 2021

In 1940, the brother of Cuellar went to Dallas to operate a restaurant at El Chico in the region of Oak Lawn. By 1950, there were five prosperous eateries. In 1961 the Six Flags Amusement Park was founded by Angus Wynne Jr. in Arlington and urged them to open a restaurant in Mexico. El Chico is a South American restaurant franchise. In Oak Lawn, Dallas, Texas, the first restaurant was opened in 1940.
Established in 1964, this cafe became a restaurant, bakery and candy for multiple cuisines.
A variety of Tex-Mex cuisine are served in the restaurant. History[edit]. The genesis of the restaurant was the famed homemade Tamales by Adelaida “Mama” Cuellar in a county.
