South of the Border

America’s Taco Shop | Carolina’s Mexican Food | Milagro Grill

by Mike Hunter

Home to some of the best Mexican food “north” of the border, the Valley is a hot spot for new Mexican cuisine. Here are a few:

America’s Taco Shop — Phoenix & Tempe

There is one place in the Valley to get Carne Asada that is tender and crispy in all of the right ways. That’s America’s Tacos. A quaint “taco shop” with three locations to serve. Unique, Baja flare and atmosphere where authentic modern Mexican taste is unforgettable.

Carolina’s Mexican Food — Phoenix & Peoria

Authentic Mexican in a “quick to the point” concept. Order by the number and be more than amazed at the flavors. Order in bulk or just for a quick bite. Tortillas made fresh, Machaca to remember and combo plates to experience a bit of it all.

Milagro Grill — Phoenix

New, contemporary Mexican, infused with American and European influences, Milagro Grill is the brainchild of the Macayo founder’s grandchildren. Mexican flatbreads, pinchos, soups, salads and tacos ripe with flavor mean this new spot is one to watch.
