El Charro Cafe - Rancho Sahuarita- Have you been yet?

We took my Dad to lunch recently at the new El Charro Cafe. We loved it. It is beautifully decorated and the food was fantastic! I had the shrimp tacos and they were delicious! My husband had the beef combination plate and loved his meal too. My Dad had a chicken salad and it came with a very generous portion of grilled seasoned chicken. (Honestly, who orders a chicken salad at a Mexican restaurant?:) )The staff was very helpful and friendly. When I walked in they offered me a glass of water with lemon while I waited for the rest of my party. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure we always had what we needed. The patio looks like it will be a happening spot once it cools down a bit. The prices start at $7.95 and go up to about $14.95.
We can't wait to try the Sunday Brunch.  It's $10.95 for adults and only $2.95 for kids.
They offer a happy hour daily from 3p-6p with deals on food/drinks. They feature live music on the weekends.
The children's menu offers grilled chicken strips, grilled cheese torta, beef taco, beef nachos, bean burro, quesadilla, or chicken nuggets. It also includes rice, beans, (or fruit or french fries for a $1 more) and a drink for only  $3.95.  Root beer floats and churros are available for dessert.
El Charro is a partner with Tucson Value's Teachers. Teachers can present their TVT card or proof of employment on Tuesdays for 2 for 1 entrees.
We can't wait to go back and try it again!

Here is a fun little freebie in the Sahuarita Frys

If you go to the area in Fry's where the make up is, look for and end cap with an offer for a free coloring book of either Animal Planet or Alvin and the Chimpmunks with the purchase of two products such as Colgate toothpaste or Soft Soap. I purchased two $1 dollar Colgate toothpastes and got a really cute free coloring book.  It could have been even cheaper if I had used my coupon for the toothpaste from the Sunday paper but of course I didn't have it with me.
