Located just off of the 51, this family-owned Phoenix Chihuahuan-style restaurant is deceptively simple from the outside, but its food is pretty damn delicious -- looks aren’t everything people! Order at the counter from the straightforward menu of tacos, burritos, and gorditas (the the carne asada and el pastor tacos are what you’re here for), and then load up at the impressive homemade salsa bar (the chile rojo is quickly becoming one of our favorite in town) while you wait for your food.
