Mexican restaurants in Dallas years ago (1960s-70s)

I grew up in east Dallas and there was an El Chico Mexican restaurant in Lakewood not far from us. We used to go there some. My mother and I Iiked Tex-Mex and my father didn't mind going there because they had good fried oysters in season and, otherwise, the fried chicken was pretty good. Is it still there?

My mother worked near, but not right in downtown Dallas. Sometimes we would meet for lunch at an El Fenix restaurant. It was close enough she could go there on her lunch hour. I think this was their original location and had handmade tortillas. I remember a dish I particularly liked called Shrimp Veracruz.
