At this popular Ahwatukee eatery, five sisters and two brothers have been sending out hundreds of tacos and burritos a day exactly the way that Mom and Dad did it from a food cart back in 1981. The Ahwatukee flagship opened in 2000 and was featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” in 2009. Los Taquitos features a lineup of eight kinds of street tacos. Everybody loves the carnitas and its slightly sweeter cousin, the pastor. There’s also lengua if you want to take a deeper dive into authentic Old Mexico, plus fish, shrimp, veggie, chicken and asada. Most of those same options carry over to the tortas and the burritos and bowls, plus other options, such as green chile pork and red chile beef. New customers are often pleasantly surprised to learn that the restaurant makes a tasty breakfast burrito, too. Keep it vegetarian with eggs, cheese and potato or have them stir in some chorizo and other meats.
