As the name implies, you can certainly find fry bread at this central Phoenix restaurant. Since winning the America's Classic award from the James Beard Foundation last year, the Fry Bread House has become a draw for food nerds all over the Southwest. These folks have been in business for more than a decade, serving up fry bread, Indian tacos and other sorts of artery-clogging goodness. The added attention to quality can mean long lines for lunch so bring a friend to keep you company; you won't be able to finish the giant portions anyway.
In this case, the name really does say it all. Located on the side of a two-lane dusty road on the southeast corner of Indian School and Alma School roads, The Stand offers authentic fry bread, tortillas and Indian tacos with green chile, red chile or beans and cheese -- all for $6 or less. You won't get much atmosphere as dining takes place al fresco and often in the company of lounging dogs. Nevertheless, a must-see for adventurous fry bread diners.
