PHX Superstitions Hiking: Lunch Shopping & Post-Hike Dining?

Janer | Nov 15, 200907:31 AM     2

We are heading to Phoenix soon for 3 days of day hiking, staying at hotel in Apache Junction (frig in room). Seeking suggestions for where to get sandwiches or other food for the trail. Based on previous posts, it looks like the Phoenix Ranch Market in Mesa would be a good source and opens at 6 am Any tasty treats you like that would hold up well on a long day hike? Would either shop the day before and keep in our frig room overnight, or go there before we set out. Also looks like Tradiciones might be an option for a post-hike dinner one evening?

Also on my list:
El Nopalito
Barrio Cafe one evening (assuming we can get cleaned up).

One day we also want to head south and hike the Table Top trail which looks to be southwest of Casa Grande. Any suggestions for a post-hike early dinner & margarita in the Maricopa or Casa Grande area - nothing fancy since we will have been hiking. Searched the boards but couldn't come up with much.

Anything worth trying in Apache Junction? Saw a mention of Los Tacos.

Since we are coming from a northern state, you can see my bent is toward Mexican/southwestern cuisine, like so many of your visitors.
