Here are the Top 10 Mexican restaurants in Arizona, as featured in the 2020 edition of Ranking Arizona:

1. La Hacienda at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess

Background: La Hacienda by Richard Sandoval at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is where Mexican cuisine takes on a whole new meaning as Executive Chef Forest Hamrick delivers Sandoval’s signature style of vibrant flavors and ingredients, combining the bold taste of classic Mexican food with timeless European cooking techniques in a lighter, healthier way. Popular choices include varieties of guacamole, ceviche, lobster tacos, filet de parilla, churros, flaming coffees and 240 selections of tequila presented by a certified tequila expert. The atmosphere is as inviting as the food, with rustic architecture warmed by beehive fireplaces and outdoor fire pits.

Restaurant strengths: “Three major components we focus on are the quality of the food, service and consistency. With Chefs Richard Sandoval and Forest Hamrick’s creative minds behind the menu, paired with the service team who are tenured from six-14 years, La Hacienda is a family and you can see it as they work together to create memorable dining experiences for our guests. The ambiance is warm and inviting, the dishes are fantastic and consistency is key. We are very honored and proud La Hacienda has been voted the No. 1 Mexican restaurant for many years, as we are always striving to create a “wow” for every guest, every time.”
