Driving around the Queen Creek and San Tan Valley area, it is almost impossible to not pass a Mexican food joint of one kind or another wherever there are businesses. You’ll find food trucks, fast food and sit-down restaurants. There is no doubt your Mexican food craving will be satisfied. Give me a plate of nachos and a margarita and all is right in the world.
Let’s break this down by categories….
Food trucks, you really have to watch where they will be at but you can almost always guarantee that you will find at least one at the Friday night Queen Creek Feastival. If we’re talking fast food, there are so many options, and everyone has their favorites. You will find Taco Bell, Filiberto’s, Some Burros, Café Rio Mexican Grill, del Taco, Backyard Taco, and Chipolte, just to name a few!
Now we talk about some sit-down Mexican restaurants in Queen Creek and San Tan Valley. This is one of those discussions that can start arguments so tread lightly when discussing.
For a lot of people in the Valley, Nando’s is a solid choice. With simple Tex-Mex style of food and a rotating margarita of the month, there food is consistent. Their service is usually quick and always friendly. Not only located in Queen Creek but you can find locations in Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa! All of the locations having great outdoor seating year round; heaters and fireplaces in the winter, misters in the summer. Good place for a one on one or a large group.
Another fun place to visit especially in the non-summer months is Creekside Taco Shack. Service can be slower there at times but it will be worth it. Sitting outside at Creekside is like sitting at the beach without the ocean. The majority of the seating is set in sand with areas for your kids to play while you relax with your drink and enjoy the sun.
Serrano’s is a family owned and a local favorite with a recent claim to fame of being voted Best Mexican Food in the Valley 2022. Another Queen Creek restaurant you can find in various places in the Valley. They also have their great Mexican food in Chandler, Tempe and two locations in Mesa.
A great option in San Tan Valley Moreno’s Mexican Grill with other locations in Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa. Now if margaritas are what you are looking for, you can get a great priced one here. All day every day their margaritas are $5. One difference here compared to some of the other Mexican restaurants, you have breakfast options, too.
