Are you ready to party like it’s 1922?

El Charro Cafe is turning back the clock and celebrating 95 years in Tucson on Friday, September 15.

The original location is the nation’s oldest Mexican restaurant in continuous operation by the same family, and has since opened two more locations in the Old Pueblo.

Founder, Tia Monica, came to Tucson from France in the 1800’s, and eventually opened the restaurant as a one woman operation.

She’s also famously known to be the creator of the world’s first chimichanga after accidentally dropping a burrito into a frying pan full of oil.

Now, in order to thank Tucsonans and throw a fiesta like no other, all three El Charro Cafe locations will offer rotating 95 cent specials on Friday, September 15.

Yes, you read that correctly, numerous deals under a dollar.

You can expect iconic items such as their famous chimichangas, tacos, tamales, cervezas, and last but not least, margaritas for under a dollar.

Live entertainment and Mariachi bands will be there to celebrate all day, too.

El Charro Cafe has three locations, but the original is on 311 N. Court Ave. For more information, visit elcharrocafe.com.

At a very young age, Matt was gifted with the artistic ability to masterfully roll a burrito to the highest of standards.
