Tacos Chiwas

What started out as a small, counter-serve restaurant offering a tight menu of Chihuahua-style street food has expanded to three locations across the Valley, including a new larger location for the original Phoenix eatery. But even with all those changes, the excellent quality of the food has stayed consistent. 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. Burned 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.
