I'll be flying into Phoenix for the holidays for two weeks for a visit with my daughter, who lives in Chandler. I'd like to find a few interesting places serving lunch and or dinner that is inexpensive. Not interested in high end, we've got that covered (booked some dinners in Scottsdale & Sedona). My definition of inexpensive is $20.00 & under.
I'm not looking for BBQ or Southern food; I live in NC so I can get that at home. I love good Southwestern/Mexican, Indian (American & East), a good cheeseburger and prefer to go where the locals eat. Willing to go to pretty much any of the valleys if the food is good.
Couldn't I just ask my daughter? I could, but she's not a chowhound.
Also, I just found out my favorite bread bakery is closed down..The Breadsmith in Mesa used to make the best cheesy bread I ever had and I was so looking forward to going back. Is there any other place where I might be able to satisfy my fix? Any recommendations appreciated!
