Huauchinango Mexican Grill - Closed

7620 E. McKellips Road Scottsdale, AZ 85257 | South Scottsdale | 480-970-9962

Location Description:

Named for a city not far from Mexico City in the Sierra Norte de Pueblo Mountains, this inexpensive and delicious Mexican restaurant is one of our town's best-kept secrets. This is where people go when they want really authentic Mexican cuisine-no Tex-Mex here! From the green chili tomatillo that comes with your basket of super crunchy chips to the shrimp quesadilla (stuffed with cheese and spices and folded over and quickly grilled) to the house-made menudo, this is Mexican food for the discerning palate. Grilled Beef Huaraches with Verde Sauce are a house specialty, and the green chile tamales trickled with habanero salsa is a dinner-time treat you won't soon forget.
