Restaurant of the Week: Gadzooks

Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup, a locally owned Mexican restaurant, opened their second location in the Arcadia area after having much success in central Phoenix.

Welcome to the customized process that is Gadzooks! This process is made quick and easy so you can get to the part that you’ve really been waiting for – DEVOURING IT.


Start your experience by choosing any one of Gadzooks mouthwatering main dishes. From their famous Braised Bison Enchiladas to their award winning Sweet and Spicy Cornbread Stuffed Festival Tacos, there is no going wrong here. Expect homemade fresh pressed tortillas with every order and when asked if you would like to try Gadzooks famous “50/50” tortilla option (half corn/half flour), always say yes!

Choose between countless combinations of savory sauces, deliciously marinated meats, vegan/vegetarian options and endless toppings. Each dish is served and oven heated to perfection in a cazuela (Spanish for cooking pot), giving a truly authentic taste to any dish.

That’s right, Gadzooks offers a craft beer that you won’t find anywhere else; their on draft Bavarian-style Hefeweizen locally made by Wren House Brewing Co. This beautifully brewed beer is sure to go with everything on the menu.

Not a beer person? No worries! Margaritas and Sangria are ready and awaiting your arrival. Choose between Gadzooks refreshing Osborn Oro Margarita or their sweet 7th Street Sangria – each guaranteed to satisfy your craving and complement any tasty dish.

Savory foods are not the only thing on the menu; save room for their oh-so sweet Pumpkin Cookies. Picture a cookie as soft and as fluffy as could be, now add on a dollop of brown sugar glaze – this is what you should expect when ordering the cookies here at Gadzooks.

Is your mouth watering yet? Good! Satisfy your craving at their new Arcadia location or their original Phoenix location.
