We were seated on the patio and enjoyed a nice Fall Arizona day. Water came right away as we looked over the menu. It’s quite extensive with all of your southwest favorites. I had the chili relleno and my daughter had the combination plate. I...More

The service is great...the food is just so-so. Not sure why so many famous people, whose pictures line the entry to the restaurant, have chosen Tee Pee over other (and there are tons) of Mexican food places in Phoenix. Perhaps it's just that it's been...More

I never come to Phoenix without stopping at the Tee Pee. Place has been here since 1960. The cheese crisp is the specialty, but all the food is awesome. You won't be disappointed.

There are over 300 Mexican restaurants in Phoenix, so it's impossible to compare or even choose. We selected this one on the recommendation of the hotel staff. Drive up to an old School-type restaurant and walk inside to 50's style tables and booths. Sat down...More
