True southern-style Mexican food

It all started with a desire to show Phoenicians what true, southern-style Mexican food really is.

At La Barquita, you’ll quickly find out that all our dishes are more richly seasoned, rather than just flat out spicy. We use only the finest ingredients to ensure every bite you take is a quality one. Our chips and salsa, guacamole, and even our homemade corn tortillas are made every morning to ensure that we are keeping our promise to you. Whether you’re in the mood for some traditional homemade comfort food, or the must order dish, one that demands to be manhandled, torn into with the appetite of a bear, THE MOLCAJETE JEFE, we got you covered.



Absolutely fantastic. Had the combo #4 with carnitas burrito. The staff is so sweet and fast. Very authentic and everyone cleaned their plates. Definitely going to be back.

For Me, This place has the Real Mexican Food, everything I tried it was fresh, ready to eat and tasty, with handmade tortillas, never disappointed, Loved the Enchiladas Suizas, Chiles rellenos, and Molcajete Mexicano, I come often so I know what I’m talking about.

Great little restaurant if you are looking for authentic mexican cuisine. Food is really good and you get a great amount for the price. We felt that the staff pays a lot of attention to how every meal is prepared and would love to come back again.
