restaurants in or near downtown phoenix

  • p

Does anyone have any ideas about good places, especially Mexican or microbreweries in downtown Phoenix or someplace that isn't too far away by car?

Having never been there, I don't have a clue. We (a few state employee types from Idaho) are headed there in December and want to enjoy at least a little of the local flavor in our spare time (if we have any). But, as state employees, we don't have huge expense accounts so we'll be looking for something reasonably priced. It's my experience that good Mexican restaurants are almost always reasonably priced anyway.

If you have any good breakfast ideas, we'd appreciate those as well.

After reading previoius posts on this message board, I'm not terribly encouraged, but thanks for any help you may be able to offer.

  1. My favorite Mexican restaurant is Los Dos Molinos, but you have to like it hot! They are at 8646 S. Central. Check it out. Lunch and dinner Tu-Sa. Another is El Bravo at 8338 N. 7th Street. Lunch and dinner M-Sa. Oaxaca (pronounced wah-HA-ca)is a great lunch (or dinner) place close to downtown, 1516 W. Van Buren.

    Good luck!
