The Spotted Donkey Cantina

Voted Best Mexican Restaurant in the Greater Phoenix Area

The Spotted Donkey Cantina at el Pedregal is quickly earning a reputation as the place for Mexican cuisine in North Scottsdale. And with a tequila list boasting dozens of varieties (including our exclusive Herradura double-barrel Reposado Tequila), an innovative menu, and a large outdoor patio with scenic desert vistas, it’s really no surprise.
