Take me out to the ball game? Ehh. I say, take me out to dinner.
In the vicinity of Mesa's Hohokam Park, Blue Adobe Grill is a reliable stop for homey Mexican food in a charming atmosphere. Meanwhile, Mangos Mexican Cafe is a more casual stop for South-of-the-Border fare. Nearby Il Vinaio is a favorite with ball players (the restaurant has catered events for the pros), with Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Another upscale spot is De La Cruz Bistro, serving contemporary American food. For a Thai fix, try Nunthaporn Thai Cuisine.
