Wait, That's Not the Real Hound Dog

Elvis Presley, God love him, was a man of excess. He was a glam rocker before glam rock — sporting eye shadow and plowing through mass inventories of rhinestones. He drank a case of soda a day, had shag carpet laid in his bathroom and required that his pantry be stocked with six cans of biscuits at all times. It’s fitting, then, that the King of Rock and Roll will be commemorated this month in a Tex-Mex restaurant — a place perfect for anyone with a fondness for overindulgence. El Ranchito, 610 W. Jefferson Blvd., serves up plates of cheesy, refried goodness with a side of legend as its general manager, Juan Sanchez performs as “Elvizz” Presley on Wednesday, August 20 at 7:30 p.m. Sanchez, who has been skillfully impersonating Elvis since the age of 14, pays tribute to his favorite singer with a selection of hits and favorites that’ll leave you all shook up. Be there with a plate of over-the-top delicious enchiladas in honor of The King as Sanchez serenades diners; you can make reservations by calling 214-946-4238.
