Rio Mirage Cafe y Cantina
El Mirage, AZ 85378
Phoenix New Times's Description
The small city of El Mirage, sandwiched between Sun City and Surprise, doesnât have very many locally owned places to eat. But there youâll find Rio Mirage CafÃ© y Cantina, a spot with Mexican staples as well as one of the best brunches in the Valley. Full of Latin flavor, breakfast includes chorizo con huevos, chile rellenos, machaca, and a glass of sparkling champagne. Thereâs also red menudo, light on the hominy but packed with beef stomach and a slightly thickened red sauce. To seal the already-awesome deal, fresh-off-the-grill, piping hot tortillas are served in a woven basket. Other times of the day the food is just as impressive, including classics like chips and salsa, a build-your-own taco station, and sizzling fajitas served with fresh guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, refried beans, rice, and tortillas. Finish off the meal with pan dulce, a sugar-coated handmade sopapilla made to order, or a churro stuffed with apple or caramel filling.
