Congratulations to Tucson’s El Charro Cafe for being named Arizona’s most iconic restaurant by Thrilllist. The Flores family has been serving delicious food since 1922. Their carne seca is world famous. Another claim to fame is Monica Flin, the founder of El Charro and aunt of the current owner Carlotta Flores, invented the chimichanga.
The original location, 311 N Court in downtown Tucson, was once the family’s home. If you live in Tucson or a visitor, take the time to experience one of the taste and traditions of our city. Congrats El Charro for a great recognition.
Would enjoy hearing about your favorite Tucson Mexican restaurants. Please share your thoughts in the comment below.
