This inconspicuous hole-in-the-wall, with its tiny, bare-bones dining room, is home to inexpensive but delicious Sonoran-style eats. Whole grilled chickens ($10.65) and the parrillada (a generously sized mixed grill served over a flame) are the specialties at Norte de Sonora and are served with tortillas, vegetables, beans, and excellent red salsa. About that mixed grill: the carne asada is top-notch, but the tongue, beef head, pastor, barbacoa, and rib should not be overlooked. Each meat also is available in tacos, tortas, and burritos, as well. And the large $5 chicken burro (filled with the outstanding grilled chicken, shredded cabbage, frijoles, and creamy guacamole) easily is the best of its kind in central Phoenix. Read our review.
