BEST FAMILY-FRIENDLY MEXICAN RESTAURANT - 2007
When you need to please the kids and the grandparents alike, head to Tradiciones. Heck, you might as well invite your extended family while you're at it, because the colorful dining room has abundant seating for large groups. Ordering appetizers is a snap, thanks to the generous sampler plate, and "La Parillada," the house-specialty platter heaped high with sizzling grilled meat, is perfect for sharing. Besides the accessible Sonoran cuisine, grownups will go for the stiff margaritas, while little ones will love the festive atmosphere when the restaurant's decorated with bunches of colorful balloons and the singing mariachis stroll past your table, it feels like one big party.
