After making Mexican food in the Valley for more than 26 years, the Chandler-based Mexican restaurant chain Someburros has decided to expand north. Specifically, to Flagstaff.
The family-owned business, started by George and Mary Vasquez in 1986, currently has locations in Tempe, Scottsdale, Chandler, and Gilbert. Its new Flagstaff restaurant, planned to open in May, will be located between Northern Arizona University and downtown Flagstaff at Aspen Place at the Sawmill on Butler Avenue and Lone Tree Road. It will be Someburro's sixth location and the first outside of the Phoenix area.
Here's what Flagstaff residents and tourist types can expect:
Known for its Mexican food made from scratch, dishes include pollo fundido, fiesta platters, and crispy tacos. The new northern location will also offer several Flagstaff microbrews and all-day breakfast specialties.
The Flagstaff Someburros' 3,250-square-foot space will feature a spacious patio equipped with heaters and a phone order pickup station.
