In the very early part of 2014 the Phoenix Burrito House opened its doors in the middle of the Melrose District, taking over the former home of James Beard Award-winning The Fry Bread House. A fresh coat of white paint and some lotería art transformed the tired space into a bright restaurant that offers remarkably good burritos. Housemade flour tortillas make the base of the restaurant's namesake food, which come stuffed with everything from moist carne asada to plump shrimp and bright calabacitas. The shrimp burrito is one of our favorite dishes; it offers a handful of shrimp accompanied with a medley of fresh vegetables including onions, cabbage, and cilantro making for a light, flavorful, and filling meal.
