Six of us Phoenix Hounds met this afternoon at Fry Bread House on 7th Avenue, just north of Indian School Road in Phoenix. The attendees were myself, HomeCookKirsten, tastyjon, azhotdish, silverbear and grrlscout.
I will let the others chime in about their experiences, but I ordered the Fry Bread Special which was a large fry bread and a choice of a bowl of red chile, green chile, hominy stew or vegetarian stew. I selected the red chile.
I was surprised at how quickly my order came out. I would estimate less than 5 minutes, even with the interior stuffed full of patrons and lots of people standing in line to order.
Once I got to the table, I tore off some of the fry bread, dunked it into the chile and the spice immediately hit my tongue and throat on my first bite. It was excellent. The meat was incredibly tender and the spice level was high, but very enjoyable. The fry bread was very good. It was piping hot and fresh. I liked how light it was considering its size.
The special and a large Diet Coke set me back $7.98. Service was straightforward. I stood in line, placed my order and took a seat until they called my name. No complaints.
Well, except that they didn't have a cheese crisp.
Thanks to the other Hounds that showed up. I wish I could have stayed longer, but the office was paging me and I had to return to work. I hope to get a chance to visit with grrlscout and azhotdish again since they were at a separate table.
Great meet up, all! Good food, good conversation, and good times!
