The Arizona Cafe
This spacious restaurant, tucked away in a shopping center on General McMullen, has been a breakfast and lunch favorite with local politicians and fans of authentic Tex-Mex and Northern Mexican for 23 years. Let’s dissect just one dish: the chile relleno, large enough for two, comes stuffed with generous portions of spicy ground beef and diced potato, then coated with a light egg batter. Melted white and yellow cheese cover the chile, which is then topped with a sautéed onion and red sauce. Even the expected sides hold up to scrutiny: distinctively textured refried beans, tomatoey and fluffy rice. And the service is excellent, with tea and tortilla refills in abundance.
