I was driving by the downtown Dallas eye sore that’s El Fenix restaurant this morning and noticed it said “EST. 1918”.
I’m not good at math but that’s 100 years! Nice! I did some further research (mainly just to see if I could get free and/or cheap food for their birthday) and discovered that the dude that founded El Fenix was also the dude that invented Tex-Mex. Arriba!
Happy 100th to El Fenix and Tex-Mex! I’m sure I’ll enjoy you both many more times before I kick it.
Viva Enchiladas y Chimichangas!--
