Secret family recipes ensure that future generations will enjoy authentic feasts and endlessly speculate about which recipe is encoded with the location of the family's underground candy mine. Unlock years of delicious meals with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare at Papi Chulo's Mexican Grill & Cantina, located next to the Clarion Hotel Scottsdale in Scottsdale.
Papi Chulo's earned a nod as one of the Arizona Republic's Top 25 Favorite Taco Restaurants for its menu of Mexican fare and Sonoran specialties. The classically trained head chef whips up trios of mexican street tacos ($7.99), as well as platters of classic Sonoran–style enchiladas ($7.99) which, like early trips to the moon, arrive overflowing with meat, shredded cheese, and ranchero sauce. During dinner, dive into deep-fried golden taquitos (four for $7–$8), or pick at a shrimp al ajillo ($18), which swims through a sea of garlic, lemon, and guajillo chile. Papi’s wraps up the extensive menu with quesadillas, tostadas, and chimichangas while also offering margaritas.
Papi Chulo's dramatically lit interior décor houses a wraparound bar, wrought-iron chandeliers, and imported Mexican furnishings. Settling into the spacious dining room or either of the two patios, guests can gaze upon scenic views of Camelback Mountain or up-close views of their dining partner's French Stewart impression.
Papi Chulo's Mexican Grill & Cantina
A 6.5-pound behemoth of a burrito can really only have one name: the Big Papi. At Papi Chulo's Mexican Grill & Cantina these giants of gastronomy, which were recently featured in Phoenix Magazine, are waiting to be conquered by challengers willing to dethrone current champion Stephanie Torres, a competitive eater who has appeared in the Nathan's Famous Women's Hot Dog Eating World Championship. On the regular menu, Papi Chulo's executive chef combines Mexican tradition with Sonoran familiarity to craft authentic Southwestern dishes with a down-home feel. The staff serves regular lunch specials, Mexican favorites such as chiles rellenos, and breakfast specialties including huevos rancheros and chorizo and eggs.
Inside the spacious dining room, imported Mexican furniture sits below exposed wooden beams bearing wrought-iron chandeliers ideal for illuminating a special meal or supporting the weight of a masked Zorro impersonator. Attended by a sunny wait staff, the bar slings specialty margaritas and happy-hour specials every day that patrons can enjoy indoors or on the outdoor patio in full view of Camelback Mountain. Papi Chulo's also hosts regular events including poker nights on Mondays and live comedy every Friday and Saturday night in the Speak Easy Lounge located inside the restaurant.
