A good torta is not hard to find in Arizona, but a good torta spot, one batting a thousand? If there’s one, it’s TEG Torta Shop — formerly Tortas El Guero. The family-owned 16th Street torta hall has been around since 2002, and offers nearly 20 tortas in mini, regular, and super sizes. We recommend the torta ahogada — a sandwich of pierna (pork leg) and beans, smothered (or drowned, as the name suggests) in chili sauce, the fresh-baked bolillo bread sopping wet. Elsewhere on the menu you’ll find standard Mexican fare: streets tacos, burritos, quesadillas, aguas frescas, and licuados (milkshakes), all solid options if your companions seek something more familiar. But do nudge them toward that torta. It’s a knockout.
