Phoenix Restaurant Guide

A searchable directory of recommended local restaurants


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 entrées like carne asada, fried fish, and pollo encebollado (chicken in a luscious onion cream sauce). A plate of hot, doughy Salvadoran tortillas gives you a good excuse to clean your plate.
