Phoenix New Times' Description

While there are a few Mexican eateries in the vicinity of Old Town, you'd have a much better chance of tracking down a gourmet burger or a plate of sushi. So for that reason alone, The Mission fills a welcome niche in this 'hood. While the menu is a broader, more modern take on Latin cuisine, the real highlights are simple pleasures like street tacos and bacon-wrapped hot dogs. And even if you're only going to knock back $15 cocktails, the atmosphere here is certainly dark and sexy enough to encourage lingering.

    The food here was unbelievable. Order the ghost pepper hot sauce, you may also need a glass of milk to wash it down. Had the chipotle caesar to start which had a great taste. Duck Confit for dinner with roasted hominy. It was so delicious, but after so many chips and the salad I could't come close to finishing it. Pumpkin break pudding and chocolate churros for dessert.

    Great escape from "OldTown". The only thing better than the atmosphere is the cuisine. Take the time to check this one out. I recommend the the Pork Shoulder and the Chilled Avocado Soup.

    Great new place in Old Town. Sexy atmosphere and delicious tableside guacamole. Also, the chicken caesar was yummy. Good Times.

    Go to The Mission for lunch or brunch, order the brisket torta w/a side of their phantasma hot sauce (made w/pureed ghost chilis). Thank me later.

    Modern Latin food and great ambiance. Try the grilled corn and blood-orange margaritas.

    The creamy blended avocado provides a silky base to the Aguacate Margarita. All that goodness is offset by a limey, sour nature so tasty that it's hard to tell that this is an alcoholic concoction.

    Amazing drinks and guacamole. Try the Avocado Margarita or Bitter Bees.

    Order the guacamole - they prepare it tableside to your specifications.
