Sacred Hogan Navajo Frybread at 842 E. Indian School Road serves up authentic Native American dishes from central Phoenix. With a bright yellow sign and the Yaa'teeh greeting this place is more humble than the name might suggest, but the Navajo tacos and frybread are the real deal.
A Navajo taco is whole pinto beans, lettuce, cheese, and red onion piled on top of a puffy golden frybread. At Sacred Hogan the frybread was hand-tossed and made to order $6.99 full/$4.99 half. Other menu items include blue corn mush, a Navajo lamb sandwich, and a featured stew of the month.
