About El Fenix
El Fenix has grown as a leading Mexican restaurant chain, but it was converted into El Fenix on September 15, 1918.
Before that, when Mike Martinez owned Martinez Café, most of its dishes were American cuisine. But now they are known for their tasty margaritas and the best Tex-Mex food in the region. Today there are more than 22 restaurants in North Texas, with plans to continue expanding.
