“They wouldn’t leave without their Chico’s” by Ramon Renteria is tale #1 in the Chico’s Tacos chronicles. El Pasoans love their Chico’s so much that, during an electrical fire, customers wouldn’t leave because they wanted their tacos. The owner had to call the cops to get them to leave.
As my mother says, only in El Paso! I’ve written about it before but I have a friend who broke up with a girl because she didn’t like Chico’s and if she didn’t like Chico’s, she would never fit in, in El Paso….Yep, we love our Chico’s.
