Restaurant of the Week: Joyride Taco House

Things are heating up in the Central Phoenix corridor as Joyride Taco House opens featuring Mexican-inspired fare and refreshments.


Open from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. until midnight Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday, the restaurant is serving up made-to-order tacos, agua frescas among other traditional Mexican-inspired menu items.

The menu is anchored by a line-up of both tacos, complemented by salads, burritos, tortas, and desserts. Before you dig into the menu, enjoy some of Joyride’s complimentary chips and fire-roasted salsa. To drink, choose from six kinds of agua frescas that are made daily – available in alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions – as well as craft cocktails, beer, wine or tequila. Best of all, diners can enjoy the restaurants selection of cocktails, craft beers, agua frescas and wines for just $5 every day until 5 p.m.


As a taco house, it was no surprise that Joyride’s tacos were a Fab AZ favorite. Tacos come made-to-order on corn tortillas, filled with ingredients like beer battered fish, braised beef and slow-roasted chicken. Each taco is ordered individually, allowing you mix-and-match your favorite fillings from eleven different options. Complete your taco entrée with a choice of side dish, such as black beans or roasted vegetables.

Equally as delectable is the restaurants choice of tortas. We loved the chicken tinga, a sandwich that combines spicy chicken, guacamole, cabbage, onions and a homemade tomatillo salsa. Mexican-inspired dishes like burritos, tamales and enchiladas also grace the menu.

As if these mouth-watering dishes weren’t enough, Joyride continues to bring the flavor in their three dessert options. Diners can choose from a house made vanilla pudding, topped with cajeta caramel sauce, fresh bananas, salted pecans and cochinito cookie crust; fresh made churros sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and accompanied with a spicy chocolate dipping sauce; or a Mexican chocolate brownie with cajeta caramel sauce, dulce de leche ice cream and topped with spiced walnuts.
