I am trying to organize a graduation dinner in April with about 15 people. I am looking for a restaurant that has a festive atmosphere that will allow everyone to talk and enjoy themselves with such a large group. We would prefer something with a Mexican or Southwestern influence since many of the guests are from out of town, but any really delicious food will work.
We are located in Glendale, but we're willing to travel within a reasonable distance (Scottsdale or downtown phoenix would be ok). Also, hoping not to spend a ridiculous amount, but it doesn't have to be cheap. Any suggestions?? Thanks so much!
