Out of the Ordinary Phoenix Mexican

AzDumpling | Jan 23, 2008 06:16 AM

Lordy, where do they find the customers to allow them to keep the doors open for so many years? Macayos, Ajo Als, Garcias, Carlos O’Briens, Valley Luna, Etc. Etc. All turning out basically the same over sauced, over cheesy renditions of supposed Mexican favorites. Where does one go to find the wonderful double corn tortilla wrapped carnitas or the not so subtle flavor of fresh ground chile in a dark red enchilada sauce? What are some of the not so well known restaurants that serve up food that really impresses? I don’t mean the Barrio, Los Sombreros, Los Dos Molinas, etc. places that everyone knows are innovative standouts but rather the places that serve what the chains offer but who do it right.
