Best Neighborhood Mexican Restaurant, Central Phoenix - 2011
Readers' Choice: Black Chile Mexican Grill
Despite the number of Mexican eateries in the Valley, Sonoran-style food still reigns supreme. Stumbling upon a place that specializes in Oaxacan moles and other edibles can be a much-needed break from tired but true Sonoran fare. Tacos Atoyac at 19th and Glendale avenues is the real Oaxacan deal, and it just opened this year, so it still has that new taquito smell. In addition to the tacos and tostadas, Tacos Atoyac also boasts moles and some of best damn horchata we've had in a long time. Best of all, nothing on the menu will break the bank, and an entire family can feast like kings for less than 20 bucks. Bienvenidos, Tacos Atoyac!
