Best Fry Bread with a Twist (2008)

Café Laguna

Brothers Otis and Nick Lara only opened this second branch of their father's fry bread place a few months ago, but it's already becoming a neighborhood fast-food staple. Why? Because, seriously, who wants to eat a stale burger or a taco with questionable meat sources when you can watch the Laras hand-make a fresh fry bread Laguna and fill it with your favorite toppings? The basic recipe comes from their Native American roots, but the pair ventures outside tradition with innovative couplings like the Gourmet Laguna with grilled meats and peppers, or our personal favorite: the sweet variety with honey-butter or cherry topping. Fry bread purists might balk at the thought of the Native American foodstuff smothered in refried beans and salsa, but that's because they haven't tried it. Once you do, trust us when we say you'll be hooked.
