Ocotillo review image




open table

Don’t expect tumbleweeds and swinging saloon doors when you come to Phoenix. Instead, you’ll find places like Ocotillo - a cool spot with an outdoor patio/beer garden that’s great for groups. Come for the fantastic brunch, which has everything from a skillet pancake with roasted bananas to brie-stuffed French toast. It’s also a great spot for lunch or dinner with its American menu with Southwestern twists, like beef ribs with a mole espresso barbeque sauce and the crispy eggplant “meatballs” over parmesan polenta.
