The El Charro Café family is proud to announce the return of their annual “Christmas in July

Sell-abration!” A 2 for 1 gift card sale to match the 90 successful years of business in Tucson: $90 gets you $90 Free!

The buy $90 gets you $90 FREE Sell-abration starts Tuesday July 24th and ends Wednesday July 25th... Exactly 5 months from Christmas, giving everyone plenty of time to get their holiday shopping done extra early! Started several years ago, the El Charro Christmas in July effort has become a family tradition and fans of the venerable 90 year old family dining icon line up in droves to take advantage of the incredible discount. Family member Alex Flores believes it is a “great gift to the many supporters of his family’s restaurant business” and is proud to be able to offer the discount during such a difficult economy and when most of the people in Tucson are the local market that live here year ‘round.

Alex also offers up some suggestions for those interested in purchasing large amounts, which include calling your favorite location and letting them know of your needs and also making sure that you visit for hours and location information. All 5 Tucson and Sahuarita area El Charro Café’s will open at 10am on Tuesday (7/24) and Wednesday (7/25) in preparation for the day’s sales event and will be offering their full menus for purchase as well as FREE refreshments for those just stopping in to buy the gift cards. The only rule to make note is that the cards purchased during this event will not be accepted on the 24th and 25th.

Flores goes on to remind those who are members of the Rewards Family loyalty program that their purchases are good for points on the purchased amount and not the free amount and that the cards will be available in $45 lot amounts.

El Charro Café’ Christmas in July is just one more way El Charro thanks everyone in Tucson for 90 wonderful years!

Here is a reminder of what is currently going on at your neighborhood El Charro Café location:

The $5 Cinco de Summer menu is back! The Cinco de Summer menu started June 1st and runs through September 30th. The menu will have a focus on The Chimichanga due to the attention the deep fried concoction continues to generate for the El Charro Family as well as the City of Tucson which can lay claim to being the “home of the Chimichanga!”

New Menus ARE HERE! El Charro’s chef-author Carlotta Flores has re-engineered her lunch and dinner menus and putting out some new recipes including seafood items using salmon and ceviche as well as new “Tacos Flacas” or skinny tacos made with lettuce wraps versus tortillas to help those on the low carb/calorie diet of the season.
