I don’t know about you but when I’m having a bad day, there’s nothing that lifts my spirits like a plate of comfort food. The food always reminds me of home and my family’s love. Depending on your cultural background, those home-cooked comfort meals can look different from person to person. Mine, for example, includes a rich chicken and dumpling stew and piping hot Navajo tacos but for others, it may be a serving of savory meatloaf, perfectly moist tamales, or perhaps some other dish. Either way, they’re a reminder of love in our lives.

Here’s a look at some family-owned restaurants in Arizona’s small towns that will not only fill your belly but also your heart.
