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.

Since Gene was working nights for quite a few years we tried to take a 3-day weekend somewhere to just get away and enjoy some time together. One year, we spent three days in Amarillo and had a blast. Dinner on Valentines found us at the Big Texan Steak Ranch.  Continue reading The Big Texan Steak Ranch – Home of the 72oz Steak

Casa Bonita – Entertainment in Lakewood, CO

Casa-Bonita - FrontWhen you talk to people about Casa Bonita in Lakewood, CO there are usually mixed reviews. However, it is still something everyone spending time in Colorado wants to experience at least once. My niece had heard of Casa Bonita from South Park, but had no idea that it was real. When she found out it was, she had to go. So after a day of playing at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, we stopped in for dinner on our way back.

Our 4 Top Mongolian Grill Restaurants near Denver

BD's LogoBD's Mongolian GrillA great thing about traveling is trying different local restaurants. As newer residents to the state of Colorado, this made it easy 🙂  We decided to start with checking out several Mongolian restaurants in the Denver area.  The first one we tried was BD’s Mongolian Grill,  and we absolutely love this place. For those of you who haven’t been to a Mongolian restaurant before, a lot of the them are buffet style, have food bars with lots of meat, veggies, and starches that you put into a bowl, then are cooked on a huge round grill adding sauces at the end. It is great, and you can have a lot of fun mixing and matching food, veggies, spices and sauces. Continue reading Our 4 Top Mongolian Grill Restaurants near Denver
