You’ll Find The Most Mouthwatering Fry Bread At These 6 Arizona Restaurants

Arizona is certainly known for its Mexican fare, which is served Sonoran style with beef, a slight preference for flour tortillas, and favorite dishes like chimichangas and cheese crisps. But Arizona is also known for being an ideal spot to get fry bread, a deep fried tortilla that, when cooked right, is golden brown, fluffy, and has just the right amount of crisp for dipping in soups, sopping up the leftover sauces, or topped with beans and meat.

Although it’s not the healthiest dish, fry bread is a link between the past and present for many indigenous peoples. The bread was initially created as a survival food from government rations given to tribes during internment on reservations when it wasn’t possible to prepare traditional meals. These days, however, it has become a beloved side dish for meals and you’ll find each tribe has their own slight variation on the bread, whether it’s the ingredients used or how the bread is made.

Personally, I think the best place to find fry bread is at Mom or Grandma’s house, but a restaurant or food truck is the next best place. Here’s a look at a few places where you can find some ridiculously good fry bread prepared by the people who know it best!
