Phoenix Burrito House Opens in Melrose District
As of this week, Phoenix Burrito House has opened its doors in the former space of The Fry Bread House, the 2012 winner of the James Beard Foundation's America's Classics award that moved in August to bigger digs at 1003 East Indian School Road (formerly Pancho's Mexican Buffet).
Who's behind Phoenix Burrito House? East Valley folks should recognize the name.
Phoenix Burrito House comes courtesy of the De la Cruz family, owners of El Zócalo Mexican Grille and El Sol Mexican Cafe & Bakery in Chandler as well as Mangos Mexican Cafe and Bakery in Mesa.

Soft-opened on Monday, Phoenix Burrito House will offer the popular Mexican-American food wrapped with tortillas made at the De la Cruzes' East Valley bakery and filled with things like carne asada, green chile and chicken, chorizo, ham, and bacon. Prices ranges from around $5 to $7.

The updated interior includes painted white walls and several large pictures of lotería art. Hours have not been established yet, but the friendly counter guy tells me Phoenix Burrito House will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner from around 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
