Looking for the best, most Authentic Carniceria in Phoenix...HELP!
Who has the best homemade salsas, carne asada, puerco, ceviche, etc. in the valley? No gringo-mex, the real deal.
Tough question to answer because you added in "authentic." Phoenix Ranch Market is definitely among the top. I only hesitate because I've only been in a couple of Mexican markets - among many, many - that are as clean and well merchadised as PRM. There's probably some small carniceria somewhere that knocks it out of the park but I haven't found it.
Carniceria Sonora is really great. It isn't huge, but they have the best chips I've ever purchased. Seriously. They also have delicious homemade salsas. I haven't tried their meat counter, but have been told by coworkers native to Mexico that it's where they shop for their carne asada meat. In fact, I started going there on their recommendation.

i get my carne asada from a store on the corner of osborn and 19th ave. i forget what the name of it is. i think it is phoenix farms market or something like that. anyways, they have really tasty meat, and they will grill it for you for free. i think the kind we get is diesmillo and it runs about 2.50 per lb. it went up a little. now it isnt the cleanest place but the flavor makes up for the older interior. go to the meat counter not the restaurant
