where do you go in ahwatukee for mexican?

any thoughts? the only place near me that i've really found i like is a hole in the wall place at elliott and 48th called los taquitos.

unrelated but nearby... has anyone tried that niro's gyro's right there? i've always wondered about it...

  1. I've tried Niro's, it's pretty good. Large portions. They do use greek yogurt in the tzatziki so it's nice and rich, but I ask for it on the side because they can be heavy-handed. Salads are great and the gyros are garlicky.

      thanks for the info! i've been driving by it almost every day for 3 years and never dared to try it...

    2. i guess no one eats mexican in ahwatukee?

      1. My husband like Niro's for lunch. I haven't been myself but he says it's pretty good and has in fact commented on the tzatziki.

        For Mexican...nope, we don't go to Ahwatukee. LOL Our most usual pit stops are Guedo's, Espo's and Si Senor over in Chandler. Because it's down the street from our house we'll often pop into Los Favoritos for cheap and fast tacos. Nothing fancy at all however. They also make a mean breakfast burrito.

        1. I think the reason there's no demand for Mexican in Ahwatukee is that Guadalupe is just up the road. I'm just sayin'.

          I'll second Guedo's and Espo's on the Chandler side of I-10, though.

              I'm late on this, but I expect you still like Mexican food. About two years ago, I got good food at a place in Guadalupe at the town center (or whatever it's called). I can't remember the restaurant's name. If you go through the main (south) entrance to the courtyard, turn left and you'll see it. It's near the coffee place. (Sorry this is so cryptic.)

          2. niro's has great chicago style fast food: hot dogs, gyros, and italian beef.
