Tacos are the unofficial love language of Phoenix, and they end up on the majority of restaurant menus - Mexican or not. While the number of places with overpriced chicken tacos and a Dia de los Muertos theme continues to grow in the Valley, you’ll find us at Tacos Chiwas. Here, the meats are super flavorful, the tortillas are soft (but not so soft they fall apart), and we’d like to install their salsa bar in our own kitchens. Try the classics like carne asada and al pastor, but don’t skip out on the lengua or chiwas (beef, ham, jalapeno, Anaheim chiles, asadero cheese). It’s a small space with only a few tables, but it’s perfect for two or three people who want a quick taco lunch.
