In 1940, the Cuellar brothers opened the first El Chico, serving their Mama's very own recipes for authentic Tex-Mex cuisine. Over fifty years later, we are still committed to serving the best. We use only the freshest ingredients in all of our dishes. Our steak fajitas are made with a fresh, never frozen, quality cut of beef and we make our own salsa, chips, beans, rice and other specialties fresh throughout the day. We've got award winning Margaritas, and we couple our food with great service and good prices.

I've never been to a Mexican restaurant before where the refried beans were inedible. They were at El Chico. Food quality pales by comparison to competitors in the area. It just isn't very good.
The quality of food is exceptional. The servers and management team are the best in Columbia. It is the best mexican restaurant in Columbia!
El Chico is our favorite restaurant! The owner is so very friendly and thoughtful. They make you feel like you've been friends for years. Service and food is excellent and unbeatable. Couldn't find better ...
