Description: More than seventy years of heritage and crowd-pleasing experience stand behind the pure good food that emerges daily from El Cholo, the most famous Mexican kitchen in America. Home to the legendary Green Corn Tamales and the world's best Tostada Compuesta, El Cholo has served generations of folks who know the meaning of great Mexican food. 

From famous fans such as Elizabeth Taylor and Jack Nicholson to chip-dippers who can't resist the margaritas, Sonora Nachos and famed Guacamole, generations of customers keep coming back again and again. 

And for those who savor Southwestern cuisine, El Cholo spawned Sonora Cafe, the gourmet's delight. El Cholo Cookbook captures, for the first time ever, all but one of the best recipes from El Cholo (every kitchen has its secret) and favorites from Sonora Cafe. 

Restaurant critic Merrill Shindler shares the magic of El Cholo, tracing its growth from the 1920s to today, and brings readers a spicy taste of Mexican fare, flavored with history in every bite.
