El Charro Café is now cooking up a special 99th Anniversary menu

The menu is available now until May 2021

Some say they’ve got 99 problems, others are planning to party like it’s 1999, but this Tucson staple is simply ready to celebrate 99 years of feeding the community.

As the 100th Anniversary of El Charro Café creeps closer, the Flores family has mapped out two year’s worth of commemorative activities.
