El Farol Mexican Restaurant

Locals have been dining at El Farol since 1967. With favorites like handmade tacos, family-recipe chile verde burritos and homemade salsa, it is a Mexican food staple in Salt Lake City.

Our food is made by hand from family recipes handed down over the generations. It brings back memories of our grandparents, who started the restaurant, and it brings authentic flavor to a community we love. After 50 years in business, we still love to see the response to trying heated salsa for the first time. Come in and try some on a crisp chimichanga.

Chaparro’s Tamales

At Chaparro’s, we only use food in its natural state. Go ahead, read the label. You’ll find that our food is made only from ingredients you can actually pronounce. We use USDA Grade A meats, traditional Mexican spices, and chiles from New Mexico. We hand-wrap every tamale in a corn husk for a delicious, authentic Mexican flavor.

The Chaparro’s philosophy on food is simple: Love what you eat and feel good about serving it to your family. So, we make real food from ingredients that you would find in your pantry. We’re leading the way in changing the rules of a challenged food system and encouraging people to connect with their food, where it comes from, and how it is produced. Whether it’s made from scratch in your kitchen or a convenient meal on the run, every bite should be a delight and an experience worth sharing.

Great service, great food. I always come here on every trip to SLC. Come a little early for lunch and dinner as it fills up fast. Very friendly servers. A true gem of a place.

The best I have found. Love the moles, the service, everything. Eat the favorites-on this menu it is not because it’s a trendy food item, it’s because it’s a true specialty item.

Best mole I’ve ever had, and I live in a place with great Mexican food (Arizona). I look forward to eating at the Red Iguana every year when I come to Utah for skiing.
