Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ -- Good, Authentic Mexican?

ScottsdaleAZVisitor | Dec 19, 2008 08:31 PM

I'm visiting Scottsdale next week with my parents, and I'm looking for good, authentic Mexican places where we can go for some tasty food.

As for price, that's not a huge issue. Ideally, it would be reasonably priced by local standards ($10-15 for an entree?), but if there's a great place that's worth a splurge, I'd love to hear about that too.

As far as decor, we're not picky. We definitely don't want to go to some overpriced, touristy spot and are perfectly happy to go to a totally nondescript place, as long as it's clean and worth the trip. Eating outside, however, is always nice.

We're staying at the Scottsdale Villa Mirage (you can see it on a map here: ), so bonus points for places that are in the vicinity. But we'll have a car and are definitely willing to travel in the vicinity of 20-30 minutes.

I realize the cuisine is generally heavy on the meat, but we'll have a vegetarian with us. I assume you can go anywhere and get something without meat, but if that's an issue anywhere, please let me know.

Finally, I'll just mention that we really, really like chips and salsa.

Thanks in advance!
