Looking for quick, casual lunch near (or south) of PHX airport

nonlinear Oct 29, 2012 07:29 PM

I'm picking someone up from PHX and then driving down to Tucson. We are looking for a great casual lunch spot near the airport, or on the way from there to Tucson. We are open to all cuisines, however something unique to the area would be best.

    Carolina's would be my suggestion,you can't get much more casual the food is great and it's really close to the airport.

        Absolutely. Foot long machaca burrito, enchilada style. Extra sauce.

          Add my vote to the pile of Carolina's... but I'll take a Oaxaca Special, please. Foot long, enchilada style, of course.

          Thanks everyone -- we've definitely decided to grab lunch at Carolina's!

          I'm also dropping her off at the airport at 7 pm on a Sunday... Can you all recommend a good place for dinner near the airport, which would be open but not too busy on a Sunday evening at around 5:30 pm?
