Fodor's Expert Review Carolina's Mexican Food
This small, nondescript restaurant in North Phoenix makes the most delicious, thin-as-air flour tortillas imaginable. In-the-know locals have been lining up at Carolina's for years to partake of the homey, inexpensive Mexican food, so it makes sense that she expanded from the original Downtown Phoenix location to let a little more of the Valley in on the action. The tacos, tamales, burros, flautas, and enchiladas are served in takeout containers. You can buy tortillas to take away, but good luck getting home with a full bag. The original location is in South Phoenix at 1202 East Mohave Street, and there are branches in Peoria and Mesa.
