The newly remodeled Asado Mexican Kitchen aims to put a modern spin on Sonoran cuisine and New Mexican fare. Among the space's handsome stone walls and LED-lit wooden-plank ceilings, the sleek granite bar and tables are not just home to traditional street tacos, slow-roasted pork, and Frito pie. There are also more unusual dishes to be found, like freshly roasted hatch chili peppers, Mexican-style ceviche, and a Southwestern pasta tossed with red chili cream sauce, grilled chicken, black beans, roasted corn, and cotija cheese.

The authentic offerings hat-dancing across Blue Burrito's menu marinate expectations in garlic and grill them into delicious oblivion (menus vary slightly by location). Appetize yourself with the complex complexion of a Mexican fajita pizza (double-layered tortilla pizza with grilled chicken or steak, pico de gallo, grilled peppers and onions, and melted cheese, $9.95), before boldly moving on to a specialty such as the two flautas and a taco platter, which comes chained to sides of Mexican rice, black or pinto beans, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, and tomato ($7.25).

When you spend 25 years doing one job, you'd better love it. Luckily for LuLu's Taco Shop owners Lulu and Israel Aviles, making the traditional Guadalajaran cuisine of their homeland has always been a labor of love. The duo begins with Mexican recipes passed down through generations and then incorporates Arizona's Tex-Mex influence to create a menu that mixes old with new for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Tacos begin with hand-crafted flour and corn tortillas. Once the tortillas are hot and pressed, staff then fill them with meat or seafood cooked in house-made marinades. Dishes can be prepared in the Mexican fashion?topped with cilantro and onions?or Arizona-style with fire sauce, cheese, and guacamole. Either way, the flavors stay true to the Guadalajara region, as the shop sources its spices and seasonings directly from Mexico. LuLu's even imports Mexican beers to round out the taqueria experience, with margaritas available to get parties started or put out party-related fires.
