Looking for a place to eat on your way to (or from) Sky Harbor that won't break the bank, that'll won't throw off your schedule, and that isn't a fast-food joint?
Heading east to the airport, how about Pro's Ranch Market (location #3) at Roosevelt and 16th Street? If you have time to sit down, the full-service Tradiciones is decent, but you can also sample ceviche, tortas, enchiladas, and all kinds of other Mexican fare in the grocery store's sprawling food court. Not to mention, the vibe is so lively that it'll put you in a good mood. Phoenix is lucky to have this place.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
