Details

El Famoso is a Southern California-Mexican inspired diner and bar that serves lunch and dinner. After traveling around Southern California exploring the origins and evolution of Mexican street food in that part of the country, owner and creator Charlie Green identified a forgotten niche in the fusion of Mexican comfort food with its American counterpart. Green had a vision to open a greasy spoon Mexican diner in DFW, the kind that sprang up in and around Los Angeles in the 1930s and 1940s, had their heydays in the 1950s and 1960s, and all but faded away by the 1980s. Only a handful still remain.
