Could it be hunka-hunka burning summer already? Each January and August, this stalwart Mexican restaurant in Oak Cliff celebrates the birth and death of the King of Rock ’n’ Roll with weekly Wednesday night tribute performances. This year, the final two nights of August’s event are contest rounds, where the best of the best swivel hips and snarl lips cover beloved classic tunes. Take cash for the $5 cover, and don’t miss the margaritas, fajitas and comida norteña delicacies. Like Elvis himself, these events are wildly popular; reserve a table before you go. --Brentney Hamilton
