Phoenix area

In 1976, my family was in the Phoenix area and we ate at a Mexican restaurant that had little flags on the table that you would raise if you needed your waiter. Does anyone know if this place still exists and where it would be?

    It does sound like Panco's Mexican Buffet. All the locations I remember have gone out of business.

      From Wikipedia:

      As of February 2012, Panchos has silently shut down operations. All corporate owned restaurants are closed, phone lines disconnected and website removed. The reasons behind it are unknown.[3] [4] Non corporate owned locations (such as Plano Texas and Tulsa Oklahoma ) remain open. 18 franchise locations still operate in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana
