Restaurants near end of light rail in Mesa

Can anyone recommend restaurants within walking distance of the light rail in Mesa? We're not familliar with that area. It would be for late afternoon today. Thanks for your help.

  1. Asian Express and UnPHOgettable are within 1/4 mile. Both are excellent, though very casual restaurants. There's also a Filberto's across the street.

    A great website for information about the restaurants along the light rail line:

    1. If you get off the light rail and jump on the 96 bus south(right there at the transit center so easy transfer) for just a few stops to Guadalupe you'll be at the new location for the Cornish Pasty Company). Today is a nice day to sit out on their patio.

      1. As stated above, Asian Cafe Express and UnPHOgettable are two good choices. The latter is part of Mekong Plaza, a large shopping center oriented toward the southeast Asian community. Mekong Plaza is home to half a dozen restaurants, most of which I'm still exploring. There's one devoted to broken rice dishes and another devoted to Vietnamese seven courses of beef.
