Comedor Guadalajara – Authentic Mexican Food in Phoenix

Comedor GuadalajaraWhile my niece Alex and I were in Phoenix we wanted some good Mexican food. We jumped on our phone and found a place that the locals go, Comedor Guadalajara.  It states that they are a family owned and operated Mexican food restaurant located in South Central Phoenix, AZ. For over 40 years, they’ve been serving Phoenix’s finest Mexican food with exciting dishes and unique ambiance.It sounded great, even though they said the average 25-40 minute wait. It didn’t bother us to wait, and that usually means the food is really worthy. J  We made our way there and had to fight to find a parking spot. That was another good sign that the food is good.The wait actually wasn’t that long even though there were quite a few people waiting. We were so glad we waited as the food was traditional and amazing.  While we were waiting to be seated we both decided on the 3 Carne Asada Tacos. I hadn’t had Carne Asada for a long time (nothing good here in Colorado 🙁 ) so it was such a great treat. After we placed our order our server brought us some chips and salsa, as well as our delicious Margaritas. They were amazing and just what we needed after a day of running around Phoenix. It was also the first time we had a drink together since she turned 21, so it was special on a few levels. Our food came up pretty quickly, and we dug in after a few hasty pictures. 🙂  Our food was AMAZING. I loved that they were served on the smaller traditional tortillas. I am so glad we found Comedor Guadalajara  and I would love to go again the next time I am in Phoenix. I highly suggest checking it out the next time you are in the area. One more thing I wanted to point out was that they don’t take reservations. However, even if there is a wait, it seemed to go rather quickly. Here is a link to their website with more info, address and hours.

OdySea Aquarium, Phoenix – An Oceanic Adventure

My niece Alex and I had an incredible time in the Phoenix area, especially our visit to the OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale. It is wonderful and full of wonder. 🙂  Neither of us had been there, so I did a little research on their website before we left and found out about their prices, hours, etc. I was excited when I read about all their exhibits.

Phoenix in the Distance – Amazing South Mountain Park

I recently got back from spending a few incredible days in Arizona exploring the Phoenix area with my niece Alex. It was our first trip together, and we had a blast. We had so much fun doing such things as the OdySea Aquarium, and the Open Air Market, that we planned another trip together next year, lol.  Anyway, while in the Phoenix area we were able to visit beautiful South Mountain Park. Apparently it is the largest municipal park in the United States, and is one of the largest urban parks in North America. It has been designated as a Phoenix Point of Pride.  Continue reading Phoenix in the Distance – Amazing South Mountain Park
