El Chico is a restaurant chain in the Southern United States. The first restaurant was opened in 1940 in Oak Lawn, in Dallas, Texas and now, they have 78 locations.[1] The restaurant serves a variety of Tex-Mex dishes.


The restaurant's roots began with Adelaida Cuellar's popular homemade tamales at a county fair in 1926. Her sons opened a cafe in Dallas using her recipes.[1] Today, it is part of Consolidated Restaurant Operations, Inc. (CRO) [2]
