Phoenix New Times' Description
Tacos Atoyac has become one of Phoenix's most popular taquerias, and with good reason — fresh ingredients, unique flavors, and, yes, rock-bottom prices (nothing on the menu costs more than $8). A fresh departure from the city's ubiquitous Sonaran-style taco joints, Atoyac has mined Oaxacan-style recipes, focusing more on rich flavors than on heat. Served on Fridays and Saturdays only, the complex mole is a must-order, as are Atoyac's lightly battered fish tacos, some of the best we've ever tasted, and the tlayuda, a Mexican pizza topped with delicious al pastor pork, onions, and avocado.
Tips from foursquare
Delicious! Try the horchata and the pescado tacos (I don't even like fish but they were delish!)
The interior is nondescript–walk up counter, basic tables and folding chairs–but it's what comes from behind the counter that makes the difference: mouth-watering, authentic Oaxacan-style street food.
All the tacos are phenomenal. Great pricing, owner is super cool! A must eat for anyone!
This place needs a food truck. They'd make millions.
We debated coming it. The outside was sketchy and very unappealing. Took a chance based on other reviews. The food was amazing!!
