Ghetto Mexican places in Phoenix/Tempe?

fuzzybabybunny | Jun 25, 2008 06:04 PM

I'm looking for real hole in the wall places for good cheap authentic Mexican food. I'm really new to the area and I'm just an intern, so I'm low on cash.

I don't care about the decor at all. The ghetto-er the better. I'd prefer it if the clientèle was close to 100% Mexican. Some of the best Mexican I've had was in Tuscon... pozole at a small run down place that had plastic chairs and tables and that had a front door that didn't lock. Sonoran style hot dogs in a place that was basically a tent with the chef singing old world Mexican songs. Amazing stuff. Throw any cut of meat at me. Stomach, tongue, testicles, head meat, whatever.

Tempe would be preferred.
