I reccommend Tee Pee, 42nd and Indian School in Phoenix. great margaritas, great mexican food and kitchy atmosphere. I don’t think they changed any decor since 1969! get a table in the bar it’s quieter.
AND in Tempe and Gilbert, Guedo’s Tacos. insanely good.
Venezia’s Pizza in tempe has great NY style Pizza.
Seconds on the Tee Pee! President "W" Bush had dinner there with Jerry Coangelo a while back when he was in town.
