El Fenix, the originator of Tex-Mex, is throwing an epic 100th birthday party at their flagship location in downtown Dallas. Partygoers will get to experience food specials, mariachi bands and more.

El Fenix’s downtown location will be offering their world-famous, signature, hand-rolled cheese enchilada plates, served with rice and beans, for just $1 from open to close.

In addition to the celebratory enchilada plate offer, El Fenix’s location in downtown Dallas will have special activities. To kick off the party, Mayor Mike Rawlings will host a special unveiling of El Fenix’s new street sign beginning at 9 am. Alamo St. is being renamed to Miguel Martinez Way in honor of the founder of El Fenix, Miguel Martinez.

Coca-Cola’s Polar Bear will also be onsite and giving away prizes to SeaWorld, LEGOLAND, the SEA LIFE Grapevine Aquarium, Six Flags and more. Plus, the first 750 dine-in customers ages 13 and older will receive a FREE commemorative El Fenix Centennial Coca-Cola bottle. The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show will join the celebration from 6-10 a.m., broadcasting their show LIVE from the restaurant and hosting giveaways with 106.1 KISS FM.
