The Peoria Carolina's is the third location of this Valley favorite and is just as good as its two siblings. Order anything involving a tortilla, especially the Oaxaca Special, a breakfast-minded mix of chorizo, bean, potato, and cheese, wrapped as a burro. Delicious menudo is sold on weekends, and house-blended chorizo is a specialty here. Red beef tamales, either as part of a combination plate or a la carte, are always perfectly prepared. Take home an armload of tortillas, while you're there.
