This little place near downtown Mesa may not be open every day (call ahead to confirm), but it's worth the inconvenience. They serve up a mean fry bread with a friendly attitude and if you come by on Saturday, they'll serve you a side of Polynesian fare as well. The red and green chile offer flavor without burning your mouth off but be sure to save room for dessert. They make a coconut caramel sauce that will have you liking your fingers for sure. Just don't think about the calories, just don't.

Venture out to the Gila River Indian Community for a taste of this O'odham cuisine. The Sunna family teams up to serve fresh fry bread and tortillas five days a week at different locations across the reservation (for up-to-date locations, check their Facebook page). In addition to Indian tacos, the Sunna family will prepare taco salads and O'odham burgers, or a burger patty between two pieces of their fresh fry bread. If you haven't had white tepary beans you'll want to try them -- and then swear off all other beans for the rest of your life.

The only Forbes Five Star Award and AAA Five Diamond Award Signature Restaurant in the state may be prim and proper and fancy as hell, but even they serve a version of fry bread. For dessert the restaurant offers Blue Bird Fry Bread Doughnuts, a $13 dish that includes spiced chocolate and ginger fondue and eggnog pot a crème.

Every Food Truck Friday you'll find this turquoise and purple food truck serving their takes on Native American and Mexican dishes. The fusion cuisine includes fry bread -- duh -- as well as carne asada, tacos and burgers. In addition to the weekly Friday food court at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market, you can find Emerson at various spots around town, you can get their current locations by following the truck on Facebook or Twitter. Doesn't get more convenient than fry bread on wheels.

 @WildfireDiva Yep - I also came to mention Rezbot! I love Fry Bread House, but I actually think Chef Mario's fry bread is even better.
