Phoenix's best take out spots don't compromise great taste for convenience. Ingo's Tasty Food specializes in just that - tasty food that is down-to-earth, but made with gourmet ingredients and gourmet flair. The Arcadia food stand has a roomy patio featuring grass-fed burgers, gourmet salads and excellent craft beer.
You just can't go wrong with our second pick, Carolina's Mexican Food. This long-time Phoenix favorite is well-known for authentic Mexican food that is tasty and budget-friendly. Don't leave without taking a bag of fresh-made flour tortillas, a house favorite.
When you're in central Phoenix, stop by a Pane Bianco, a favorite lunchtime take out spot. Chris Bianco's winning touch is reflected in the high quality ingredients and fresh baked bread, which is made in-house in the restaurant's wood-fired oven.
For some of the juiciest barbecue in Phoenix, make the trip to far north Phoenix to feast on savory, homemade barbecue at Pork On a Fork. This is a popular take-out spot for brisket and babyback ribs, so be prepared to stand in line for a few minutes (or, better yet, place your order online).
Finally, don't miss the Cherry Blossom Noodle Cafe, a small midtown restaurant that specializes in noodle dishes from around the world. The pan-Asian and Italian dishes are remarkably authentic and made with the freshest ingredients around.
