I have been eating at the Teepee for almost 30 years and it still has the same feel as it did the first time I ate there. This place has a very historic feel and glad to see there are places like this that still hang on to the past. It has that old school resort kind of feel. The food is nothing fancy but is always good and just as expected, never any surprises. The staff is super friendly and attentive mostly family and if not have been employed there so long that they should be. This place is an Arcadia land mark that I hope is around for along long time.
A Beloved PHX Institution.
You have to love a place that serves you unlimited chips and salsa while you wait for your table. The menu is nothing special but the food is. Each dish is made fresh to order. A current president had the enchiladas when he visited here and that dish has now been deemed the "Presidential Special". The atmosphere at the TeePee is unlike anything in PHX, you'll see anything from people in pajamas to striped suits.
If the inevitable wait is not to your liking, get your food to go as the TeePee is an excellent take out place.
We were so happy to locate this great local find! It was the best mexican food. Not a fancy place, very casual. Big red booths, but I personally liked that ambience. Matter of opinion, but can't argue about the food.
Best Mexican Food in Arizona.
I've eaten at the Tee Pee for many, many years. The atmosphere is very casual & cozy, but it's the great food & excellent service that set this place apart from all the rest. You don't need to "dress up" for the Tee Pee. It feels like home and is a favorite for everyone I know who has eaten there. The menu is not extensive, but EVERYTHING tastes great & is always served in a flash & piping hot. Free chips & salsa, ice cold beer and terrific margaritas too. If you want a new casual "joint" with great food to call your own, this is it. Clearly the best mexican food in Arizona.
