AMORY – El Rey manager Roman Martinez and his crew offer authentic Mexican dining and a lively atmosphere. The restaurant is complete with eye-popping art work and peppy Latino tunes.
El Rey has been in business for eight years, taking over from a former similar themed restaurant. In previous years, the building accommodated the unique combination of a restaurant with a drive-through automatic car wash behind. The washing alley is now filled with tables surrounded by walls filled with colorful artwork reflecting the Mexican culture.
The menu offers a wide variety of signature Mexican dishes along with a few popular American dishes for patrons preferring burgers or chicken strips.
The menu is being expanded with new items, including Texas nachos and a variety plate called El Rey Mix. An additional offering is free cheese dip with dine-in orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The business is a sponsor of Amory and Hatley sports, and it occasionally participates in feeding the teams. El Rey also offers complete catering service for special events.
