El Fenix to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Free Shamrock-Shaped SopapillasYes, even the Tex-Mex experts at El Fenix love to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

Once again, all 22 El Fenix restaurants (across the Metroplex and at WinStar Casino) will be serving up their Seasonal Sopapillas – formed in the shape of a shamrock – in honor of the traditional Irish holiday. All guests dining between March 14 and 17 will receive a complimentary* green-sugar covered sopapilla at the conclusion of their meal.

The deep-fried sopapilla is a popular Mexican pastry, similar to a donut. It’s homemade and hand-rolled at every El Fenix restaurant.

* Guests must purchase an entrée to receive complimentary sopapilla. One per person, per visit. Dine-in only. Available March 14-17 only.

El Fenix to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Free Shamrock-Shaped SopapillasEl Fenix was founded in 1918 by Mike Martinez, a Mexican immigrant who opened a small restaurant on the corner of Griffin Street and McKinney Avenue in Dallas. Often, at its main location in downtown Dallas, the lunchtime line of patrons spills out the front door and down Alamo Street. El Fenix is renowned as the originator of “Tex-Mex cuisine” and the restaurant’s Wednesday “Enchilada Dinner Special,” which features two cheese enchiladas, refried beans, and rice. Acquired by Firebird Restaurant Group in 2008, El Fenix was refurbished with freshened interiors and a revamped menu, while maintaining its signature core menu and products. In 2010 Nation’s Restaurant News named El Fenix one of its 50 All-American Icons, “restaurants that stole our hearts and stood the test of time.” For more information and locations, visit ElFenix.com.
