El Corral Restaurant In The Catalina Foothills
El Corral Has Served Tucson Residents and Visitors For Over 75 Years
The El Corral has been serving Tucson residents since 1926. That is a long time for any restaurant to stay in business and should encourage you to go there. El Corral is located just east of Campbell Avenue on River Road.
El Corral is most likely the first restaurant in this Catalina Foothills area. The El Corral restaurant has been located at the same location since it opened some 75+ years ago. OK, renovations and modifications have been made over the years.
The original name for El Corral was the El Corral Cafe. Around 1946, the name was changed to the El Corral Night Club into the 1960’s. In the early 1970’s the restaurant was purchased by the Agro Land and Cattle Company and the name shortened to “El Corral”.
The restaurant has continued to serve Tucson residents and visitor ever since. El Corral celebrated its 75th year in business in 2014.
Needless to say, beef is what’s for dinner at the El Corral. Steaks and the the house specialty prime rib are the main stay of the menu. For those not into the beef, chicken, fish and salads are available.
There are also some real interesting side dishes. For instance the Tamale Pie which has been made in house since 1975.
Old West History Theme
The entrance feels as if you are about to enter a old stage coach house. Once inside, you are treated to a host of western memorabilia that includes clothes worn by Tom Mix. Tom Mix was a silent film star between 1909 and 1935. Mix was in over 290 films during that period. In 1940 Tom Mix was killed in an automobile accident on Hwy 79 between Oracle Road and Florence AZ. There is memorial on the west side of Hwy 79 marking the location.
