This historic restaurant ( since 1937) has thrived for all these years because everything here is so appealing. The ambiance, the food, the service and the view of Camelback Mountain make this our favorite spot to visit each winter when we vacation in this area.More

Yes I believe there were. Not a big selection but enough. The view is fantastic so it should override the limited veggie option.

You might be thinking of the Texaz Grill on 16th street. They have great chicken fried steak. I don't the El Chorro has Chicken Fried Steak.
