Attached to Pro’s Ranch Market on 16th and Roosevelt Streets in Phoenix (in the former home of Tradiciones), Fiesta Grill serves Mexican dishes prepared with fresh ingredients, including juicy meats charred on a giant mesquite grill. About to walk in to the grocery store famished? It’s a good idea to stop here to fill up before you shop at the superstore next door. The menu is graced with familiar dishes like tacos with shrimp in jalapeño butter, chile relleno, spinach-mushroom enchiladas, grilled steak fajitas, and roasted pork burritos. But then there’s a twist. Thanks to owner Sam Lee, who hails from Korea, the restaurant also serves Mexican-Korean fusion such as faintly sweet bulgogi (marinated barbecued beef) tacos and kalbi (marinated short ribs) with kimchi. The space also has several TVs, and it can be turned into a banquet hall complete with big buffet to be rented out for parties or events.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Four years ago — when the economy was booming, the housing market was white-hot, and the dining public was insatiable for things like upscale steakhouses and stylish sushi joints — there was a major new player in... More »
"This is cooool!" I almost blurted that out loud the first time I visited Tradiciones, a new Mexican restaurant at the Phoenix Ranch Market. From the parking lot, it doesn't look like much, but soon I found myself in a Mexican courtyard with... More »
It's hard not to get excited about going to Tradiciones, because visiting this central Phoenix eatery is almost as good as taking a mini-vacation to Mexico. From street tacos and mini-chimis to lomo azteca (pork tenderloin in chipotle cream sauce), chicken in mole sauce, and plump camarones a la diabla (shrimp in fiery chipotle-red chile sauce), the dishes are as delicious as they are beautifully presented. The bar makes some knockout margaritas, too. And beyond the culinary offerings, there's plenty of eye candy to feast on. Out in the courtyard, there's a water fountain, vendors selling pottery and other Mexican imports, and a huge outdoor grilling area, which fills the air with mouthwatering smells of sizzling carne asada and grilled vegetables. Inside, rustic hacienda-style décor creates a festive atmosphere, while waitresses dress the part in colorful skirts and ruffled tops. And if you go during peak hours, you might even catch a live performance by mariachis in traditional garb. It's a fun, family-friendly experience that will put a smile on your face — and you don't need a passport to get there.

The folks at Tradiciones could coast on their great location: a nice, new restaurant smack northeast of downtown, just far enough away not to be mired in Metro construction, convenient and close enough to lure customers from several busy areas. But they've stepped up and made a little Eden of drinking and munching, whether you choose the charming patio (separated from abundant parking by a flowery courtyard, splashy fountain, and several stalls of colorful merchandise) or the...

When you need to please the kids and the grandparents alike, head to Tradiciones. Heck, you might as well invite your extended family while you're at it, because the colorful dining room has abundant seating for large groups. Ordering appetizers is a snap, thanks to the generous sampler plate, and "La Parillada," the house-specialty platter heaped high with sizzling grilled meat, is perfect for sharing. Besides the accessible Sonoran cuisine, grownups will go for the stiff margaritas, while... More »
