Los Taquitos, Phoenix, AZ
Los Taquitos in Ahwatukee is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants with killer carne asada! I discovered this place a few years ago on an episode of Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive Inns and Dives. Rarely do any of the restaurants featured on this show fail to meet expectations!

Canton Dragon Asian Bar & Grill, Scottsdale, AZ
El Chino Loco’s pick for dinner this month is an old favorite of mine and a long time haunt of ours, especially when I still worked on that side of town often going after work for dinner and sometimes even for lunch!
Over the years, we’ve gotten to know Candy the owner, Phoebe and Anna our usual servers. They serve the style of Chinese food that I grew up with living on the East Coast, so I was excited to make the trek from Buckeye to Scottsdale for this month’s dinner as it had been a while since I had been there.

Euro Pizza Café, Fountain Hills, AZ
I had picked this restaurant as a place the pack should visit for several reasons.
They serve award winning pizza , have a great location on the Fountain Hills lake and the owner, Merita, opened this restaurant more then 20 years ago also is a friend of mine.
This was my first Saturday dinner I planned. Initially I had only reserved 10 seats because I was told that Saturdays might not be desired and people could possibly not go.

Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, Gilbert, AZ
Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles is a perennial favorite of mine and enjoy the location in Gilbert even though it’s a bit of a ride for me.
I decided not to take the risk and get rained on, it was monsoony looking here in the West Valley, I elected to take the car equipped with a roof and A/C. The temperatures had risen quite a bit during the day and the humidity hadn’t let up. The Ford was a good choice!

Cuban Foods Bakery & Restaurant, Phoenix, AZ
Tonight’s dinner was a combination of catching up with motorcycle friends, talking about old times and some Cuban culture.
It was a fairly warm ride over to Peoria & 43rd Ave where Cuban Foods is located. I left a little early to visit Sam Ash music store less than a mile away. When I arrived at the restaurant, Rodney, Jo and Brian were already there with our table set up.
