About Valle Luna Mexican Restaurants
Valle Luna is an old fashioned family-owned-and-operated business that proudly observes the Sonoran food traditions. The entire southern border of Arizona is bounded by the great Mexican state of Sonora.
With their proximity and stark topographic similarities, it is only natural that these two friendly states would share their cultures, reflect such things as architecture and building style, music and language, and of course, food and drink traditions.
In the mid-1970's Tia Rita, our Family Matriarch journeyed to upstate New York with her Arizona-Sonoran recipes. Tia Rita's quickly set award-winning standards with her Mexican food, including being named "Best of Syracuse". Upon returning to Arizona in 1983, Rita and the family founded the original Valle Luna on West Bell Road.
Tia Rita passed away in 2008 and from the heavens orchestrated the validation of her life's work when Valle Luna was named "Best of Phoenix" -- 2009, by New Times Magazine.
The Valle Luna family celebrates and honors Rita's ideals of quality, affordability, and excellence in food and drink, and wholeheartedly promises you our very best efforts to ensure your memorable dining experiences.
