I will travelling to the Scottsdale/Phoenix area between April 7-14, and am looking to try some hot spots that Chowhounds recommend.
My current favorite in the area is the Barrio Cafe in Phoenix and I look at that as sort of the bellweather of great food in comfortable surroundings, and that's not too pricey.
I especially love Mexcian food so any GREAT mex spots either for lunch or dinner would be good to know about, but any great Italian or Southwest tips would also be appreciated.
Also, I've heard reports on great pizza at Patsy's as well as another place I can't remember (Pizza Bianco ?). If anyone could fill me in on there favorite nice, but not too pricey spots with great food, I'd really appreciate it.
