Los Favoritos

8489 McDonald Dr., Scottsdale 85250 (multiple locations, but this one is not far off the 101)



One of the few places open til 11pm, I often drive by on my way home from shopping late at Fashion Square, or on my way to a hair appointment when I know I need something to tie me over for awhile, or, when I just want a quick dinner to go. This is one of the few Mexican food places I will eat at as I typically prefer to cook it myself.

An enjoyer of simple things, I consistently order a bean and cheese burrito. This embodies the classic flavors of homemade pinto beans, cheese and fresh flour tortillas. If you get this right, and they do, which isn’t always as easy as it should be in our world of canned goods and preservatives, you have an easy and nutricious quick bite.  So enthralled, I now order my flour tortillas from here and take them home, cut them in half (they are huge) and layer wax paper in between them and freeze, to use as needed.

Their rolled or soft tacos with shredded beef, or beef and bean burritos are my family’s favorites-hence the name!
