Various locations throughout the Valley.


Carolina’s Mexican Food

If you’re looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, look no further than Carolina’s. This small, quaint place has very limited seating, so be early or take the food to go. Tortillas, burritos, enchiladas or chimichanga, despite the lack of seating this is a good bet when looking for family friendly!

Sweet Republic

What family friendly restaurant list would be complete without a tribute to dessert? Ice cream, fruit sorbets and frozen yogurt make Sweet Republic a must try just to avoid a meltdown during the hot Arizona days. Cheep, good, and as healthy as ice cream can get.
