Phoenix New Times' Description

Driving past Tortas El Guero, the tangerine-colored stucco building and its matching sign are hard to miss. And that's a good thing, especially if you're on the lookout for a cheap, tasty meal.

All 21 varieties come on lightly toasted, fresh-baked telera bread, heaped with shredded lettuce, tomato, pickled jalapeno, mayo, and avocado. Try the enormous Cubana, filled with cheese, sliced ham, roasted pork, and breaded beef, or the delicious cochinita, juicy pulled pork in a tangy barbecue sauce that makes for finger-lickin' satisfaction.

    The el pastor torta is the best!

    La Torta CUbana with Mayo is the best. Yes I know calories, but if you are going to do it, do it all the way.

    I was shocked when I walked into this place! I found a vegetarian torta instantly! Kind staff and pleasant decor! The salsa bar alone is worth the trip there! Try the orange one (chipotle mayo sauce)!
