This is the Place I was Telling You About

Concho's Mexican in Cottonwood

"The overstuffed carnitas tacos are dripping juicy, salty to perfection and have just the right amount of meaty-fatty richness. Think cilantro, crema and their secret salsa recipe. I'm getting hungry just thinking about them."
Eric Glomski, owner and director of winegrowing at Page Springs Cellars in Cornville

The Place: Concho's Mexican Restaurant

Situated near Sedona in the Verde Valley town of Cottonwood, Concho's Mexican Restaurant is no frills, authentic, family-cooked fare. The owner, Pedro, greets customers at the door, welcoming them like old friends. Pedro's mother and sister are the talents in the kitchen, whipping up hot and spicy enchiladas, burritos, rellenos, pollo fundido and other Mexican food faves. Even the chips and salsa earn rave reviews from locals. Save room for a prickly pear margarita or a glass of horchata.
