But most people will agree that some of the most creative tacos in town are at Most Wanted Taco Shop in the Sunnyslope area of north central Phoenix. The lucha libre-inspired decor adds to the fun, but the real star of the show here are delicately seasoned grilled meats stuffed inside fresh corn tortillas.
For Mesoamerican-inspired tacos, head to La Santisima Gourmet Taco Shop. For hot and cheesy grub that always hits the spot, there's the Carolina's Mexican Food take-out window in south-central Phoenix.
When you're in the mood for family-friendly dining, head to south central Phoenix for lunch or dinner at Comedor Guadalajara, a spacious sit-down restaurant with a huge selection of of Mexican food staples. Fast service and great lunch specials make this a popular destination on this part of town.
In central Phoenix, be sure to stop by Barrio Cafe, a perennial favorite with Phoenix-area foodies. The kitchen puts a modern spin on Mexican food classics, with mouth-watering results. Start with the pomegranate-studded guacamole, and of course you'll want to try the Cochinita Pibil, one of the house specialties.
