Best Neighborhood Mexican Restaurant, South Phoenix - 2011
Pitic certainly isn't much to look at from the outside, but that's generally the case with hole-in-the-wall Mexican joints. If you can get past the industrial surroundings, you'll be treated to a bright and cheerful interior packed with colorful folk art — and complete with some pretty awesome Mexican food. Chiles rellenos, tacos, burritos like tu madre used to make, and it won't leave too much of a dent in your wallet. We recommend the caldo de res, a big brothy beef bowl packed with coarse-cut veggies and fresh tortillas on the side. Nothing is too spicy, but heat-lovers can layer on a bit of the red or green salsa for a kick. Muy sabroso!
