Trying to pick “the best” when it comes to Mexican food in Phoenix, AZ is practically impossible. But if you are looking for super casual dining and authentic Mexican food…you can’t beat America’s Taco Shop.
There is nothing fancy about this place…but the prices are very reasonable and the food is great! They offer a happy hour special as well…$2 for Mexican imported beer…yea!
We stopped on our way to a movie in the Melrose Location…but they have three stores in the Valley. SInce we knew we would have to have popcorn at the movie…we just had a little “taste” to get an idea of the food quality. And…for the most part… we were impressed.
We ordered a couple of tacos. One carne asada and one of the pastor tacos. I did not even know what “pastor” was…but thought we would try it. Turns out…it is pork…and yummy. I tasted onion, cilantro…and pineapple in the pork…and it all worked together beautifully! These are what I would refer to as “street tacos” in size. Just a few bites each.
The place itself is TINY…and we were there at 1:30 in the afternoon on a weekday…and it was still busy enough for all of the tables to be pretty much taken. Interesting decor and serve yourself water and utensils make it even more laid back.
If I have one complaint…it was that we had to pay extra for the chips…and they were not impressive at all. Tasted like they came from a pre-bought bag. The salsa was good…but thumbs down to the chips. In Phoenix, Az…we know good chips…and these were not.
Overall, I would say this place is worth checking out if you are in the area.
