La Casa Coronado, 1113 Washington Ave. So., was probably the Cities’ first Mexican restaurant, site of many Spanish class field trips. In May 1963 there was a new “La Terraza,” the new terrace room, that featured authentic Mexican music, cocktails, and dancing to real Latin American rhythms. June 1963: “Every Friday and Saturday, authentic Mexican entertainment is provided by the Duo-Los Gaonas and Roberto Del Villor, Mexican recording artist.” La Casa Coronado had moved to 23 No. 6th Street by 1970, where it featured the intimate Pancho Villa Cantina. It closed in 1981.
