The cheese enchilada dinner at El Fenix is the gateway drug to a lifetime of Tex-Mex addiction.
The legendary restaurant group is celebrating 98 years of providing that fix on Thursday, Sept. 15. The North Oak Cliff restaurant, next to the Beckley stop of the Dallas Streetcar, is marking the occasion by selling the traditional $5.98 Wednesday Cheese Enchilada Dinner Special through Sept. 25.
The Dallas Streetcar operates between Union Station and the Bishop Arts neighborhood daily between 9:30 a.m. and midnight. Information about the free service is at www.DART.org/DallasStreetcar.
The original El Fenix opened on Sept. 15, 1918 on McKinney Ave. The second location, opened 30 years later in Oak Cliff. El Fenix began annual birthday celebrations with their 50th anniversary in 1968. Learn more history at ElFenix.com.
