Mexican Food For Gf's Birthday

I'm taking my girlfriend to spend the night in Phoenix at the Westin and she wants Mexican food for dinner. What is the best Mexican for dinner? Any romantic options?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Deseo opens back up September 5th and is a nice, upscale, romantic place if that fits the time frame

    1. I don't think I've ever been to a romantic Mexican restaurant. Maybe the closest thing is La Hacienda, but, I haven't been. It's not very near DT Phoenix, either.

      There are many flavors of Mexican. I like Gallo Blanco and Barrio Cafe, but, they might not meet everyone's expectation of Mexican. Both places can be loud.

      If you like New Mexican style food, Richardson's might suit you.

      There is a lot of information in older threads, written when this board was more active. Most of it is probably still fairly accurate.

      1. Which Westin? There's the Westin Kierland in northeast Phoenix and the Westin Phoenix Downtown. They're about 20 miles apart.

        1. the Mission in Old Town is good and fun, but maybe not romantic. I like Richardsons best and its nice, but not stuffy.
