1434 E. McDowell Road Phoenix, AZ 85006 | Central Phoenix | 602-257-9053

Location Description:

Guanaquito, a tiny Salvadoran joint in central Phoenix, serves scrumptious homemade dishes that are easy on the wallet. Don't miss pupusas (thick corn tortillas stuffed with cheese and other goodies), served straight off the griddle, or stick-to-your-ribs entrees like carne asada, fried fish, and pollo encebollado (chicken in a luscious onion cream sauce). A plate of hot, doughy Salvadoran tortillas give you a good excuse to clean your plate.
