Located off of Iron Springs Road, behind the Prescott, Ariz. Safeway grocery store and across the street from the indoor shooting range stands Spicy Streats. It sits in the lot on the corner with the local laundromat, a pet salon, and a vape shop, so there is ample parking. Upon walking in, there is a hidden, hole-in-the-wall vibe making it feel cozy and comfortable. Immediately to the left is a salsa bar with quality salsa options and straight ahead is the register and menu with plenty of options to cater to vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
When viewing the menu, there are many options to choose from with decent prices for the food. This makes the restaurant quite desirable to college students and those of us that function on a budget. There are all kinds of meats available for the tacos, burritos, and other items on the menu. Of course, there is also the classic chips and guacamole or salsa available to purchase.
After a brief perusal of the menu and all of its offerings, I settled on the recommended “Avo-tacos” and some bean and rice tacos. I also decided to add a vegetarian burrito last minute to my order. Taking everything to-go, I used my wait time to look at the salsa selection. I decided to try their fresh pico de gallo and red salsa, both of which turned out to be savory and well balanced with their cilantro to onion ratio, and not too spicy. I was also sold early on that the salsas were well seasoned when I saw several bottles of Tajin sitting over to the side with some limes available. A classic must-have when eating tacos, burritos, and chips with salsa.
During my salsa gathering, my food was ready and brought over to me. I was thoroughly impressed with the speed and courtesy of service offered at Spicy Streats, especially when I spilled some salsa – it was cleaned up right away. Upon getting home, I dug into my food straight away and was blown away. The “Avo-tacos” lived up to their suggestion and the four flour tacos I purchased were flavorful and filling. Somehow, I managed to also eat my burrito in that sitting and while I did experience a food coma later, the burrito was equally as great. The ingredients inside were well portioned so that each bite included a bit of each ingredient. I was full and happy.
From a recommendation to me and now to you, I would highly suggest checking out Spicy Streats. Vegetarian or not, definitely add at least one “Avo-taco” to your order, as they are nothing like I have ever had before. Their review is definitely well earned and worth verifying on your next Taco Tuesday.
