El Chico Café

SINCE 1913


Mama knows





One thing we've learned in all the years of running our restaurant is that no two guests are the same. We can customize the dining experience for  anyone who walks through our doors.

. Our mission is to inspire guests to call ours "my restaurant," recommending us as "the best" to friends in the community and around the world. E3 powers our mission. Exceptional Food, Extraordinary People, Excellent Service. We think it's a winning formula, and we hope you agree.

Our goal at El Chico is to make the guest want to come back. We do that by making the guest feel Welcome, Comfortable and Appreciated from the moment they arrive, until they leave the restaurant.

Mission, Vision, Values


All our employees--bussers and chefs, hostesses and saucier--is driven by an all-consuming passion to create delicious food and extend impeccable service. If you have what it takes, let's discuss employment opportunities.

We have the best food around and an atmosphere to match. Our recipes are authentic and time-tested. The ingredients are always fresh. The result is a menu that bursts with flavor and a certain je ne sais quoi.
