Tex Mex in Phoenix/Scottsdale
Hi there...4 of us are coming into Phoenix over Memorial Day weekend from NYC and SF...looking for a great tex-mex or mexican restaurant in or around Scottsdale. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any advice!
We don't need no stinkin Velveeeta. Sorry, just kidding.
You can't go wrong with Los Sombreros, Richardsons, Padres or Carlsbad Tavern and there are lots of mentionings of these if you search this board at the top of the page. Plus the original Los Dos Molinos, which has a branch in NYC, is from here as well.
I have found the same. I'm a bit more of a Tex-Mex fan, but I guess it depends on where one grows up. El Conquistador (32nd St) is about as close as I have come, and I know they are from Jalisco State. Still, some similarities in their recipes.
This is not to diminish the great AZ-Mex (Sonoran, Baja, etc.), but I think of Laredo, or even San Antonio, when I think of great Tex-Mex.
