Ta'Carbon Mexican Grill

West Valley Mexican restaurant Ta' Carbon has set a goal to make the best carne asada in the United States. See for yourself if the kitchen has been successful in its mission at one of two locations, Phoenix or Glendale. We can't say for sure that it's the best in the country, but it is the best in the region — so good, in fact, that you'd be crazy to order anything else at Ta' Carbon, The Real Mexican Grill. Pick a taco, burrito, or plate, load it up with carne asada, and head over the condiment bar to pile it high with diced onions, cilantro, Mexican limes, sliced marinated carrots, shredded cabbage, sliced cucumbers, marinated red onion, and any one of five or six salsas available. Not that the medium-rare skirt steak, grilled to a tender finish, isn't good enough to eat all on its own, sans tortilla and fixin's. What makes it even tastier is that a $6 plate of the pleasantly salty, lightly marinated meat makes four decent-sized tacos a real steal for something so crazy-good. Read our review.
