Arizona residents have humbly accepted and understood that the desert state has some of the hottest bites and restaurants in the nation, from Mexican food to barbecue. But so far in 2016, a handful of regional spots are getting national acclaim.
Reputable online publications such as The Huffington Post, MSN, Yelp, and Time put out nationwide restaurant guides. For 2016, all of the aforementioned sites and publications have already placed Arizona spots on their top restaurant lists for the year — and it’s only February.
This definitely looks good. And trust us — it tastes even better than it looks. Here are some of the most recent honors:
Short Leash Hot Dogs
Something of an American classic, the hot dog is a favorite among people in all walks to life. Arizona’s food truck Short Leash Hot Dogs presents customers with creative approaches to America’s most-loved ballpark treat. Take the Seventh Inning Stretch, for example, which combines classic ballpark flavors into one interesting take on a hot dog, using naan bread in place of a classic bun, and topping the dog with slaw, peanut butter, barbecue sauce, bacon, smoked gouda and cracker jacks.

Little Miss BBQ and Bobby Q
Did you know that 80% of households own an outdoor barbecue or grill? If you already know about Little Miss BBQ, it’s likely you won’t be firing up a grill anytime soon. Making it to Yelp’s listing of “Top 100 Place to Eat in the U.S. for 2016” at a prestigious number 13 slot, the spot offers a smattering of lip-smacking barbecue offerings, like the Jefa, a chopped brisket or pulled pork sandwich, complete with sausage, pickles, slaw, and sauce.

Barrio Cafe
The authentic Mexican fare at Barrio Cafe had MSN singing its praises, dubbing it one of “America’s 50 Best Restaurants” for 2016. Chef Silvana Salcido modern Mexican dishes, such as Huevos de la Capital, will have you singing the eatery’s praises, too.
