Mexican Food Ahwatukee

Mexican Food Ahwatukee

Mexican food restaurants in Ahwatukee range from my favorite taco truck, El Taco Santo, up to full dining service at Frank & Lupes New Mexican restaurant.  Since Ahwatukee is located very close to the Mexican border, it is possible to get some authentic Mexican Food or even Tex-Mex restaurant options. Even though On The Border (OTB) is a national level chain, the food offered there has always been delicious. Their carry-out is quick and easy.  The sit down service has been great too.  Some may argue that it is not authentic because of the fact that it is a national chain and not a small Mom & Pop type business, it is still worth a visit for great tasting food and service.

The following are a few options for Mexican food available in Ahwatukee.

Tukees Tamales – Mexican Food Pop-up on Fridays in the Desert Dentistry parking lot on Chandler Blvd.  Also, click the link  to Tukees Tamales to find out how to place an order for pick-up.  If you need catering for more than 30 people, this is an awesome and affordable option.

El Taco Santo – Tukee’s semi-permanent prime grilled steak taco truck.  Currently located at 40th and Chandler Blvd in the Firestone parking lot of the Safeway / Trader Joe’s plaza.
