Tacos Chiwas

While we do miss the original home of Tacos Chiwas, which butted up against State Route 51 and was located inside a repurposed Dairy Queen, the new digs are a definite improvement. What has stayed consistent, thankfully, is the excellent quality of the food. Husband-and-wife team Armando Hernandez and Nadia Holguin are behind the local chain which remains one of the best spots in Phoenix to enjoy an afternoon taco — barbacoa, pastor, and lengua are our picks. Burnt out on tacos? Go with the deshebrada roja gordita or asada burrito. For a spicy kick, try the rajas quesadilla, which always leaves us wanting a tall glass of horchata and another bite. Patio seating and curbside pickup are available.
