Barrio Queen

This tasteful and welcoming eatery focuses on a range of Mexican cuisine from Mexican street food to sophisticated signature dishes. The more wallet-friendly selections are what the restaurant does best, like the Arizona burrito with luscious pork green chili, a carne asada sandwich Mexicano, and 30 varieties of street-size tacos spanning the familiar to the exotic (try the al pastor with slices of sweet pineapple, beer-battered fish with a spicy cream salsa, or the satisfying cactus and egg with queso fresco). Desserts, like the churro with cajeta (caramelized goat's milk) are satisfying as well. And for tequila lovers, there are over 350 kinds to choose from.
