Framed by scenic views of Camelback and Mummy mountains, El Chorro has a long-standing reputation for its beautiful desert surroundings, patio dining featuring spectacular sunsets, timeless charm, and famed sticky-buns. After 75 years in business El Chorro continues to draw new fans with the classic American menu created by acclaimed Chef Charles Kassels featuring organic and locally grown ingredients including produce fresh from the kitchen’s own garden.
Recently renovated, El Chorro was originally built in 1934 and was converted to a restaurant and lodge in 1937. Clark Gable, John Wayne, Barry Goldwater and other prominent figures visited the Lodge in its early days.
El Chorro is open Tuesday through Saturday for happy hour from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday brunch is served from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
