Restaurant Opening | Gadzooks Enchiladas Arcadia Location Now Open

Posted on: January 22nd, 2018 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

Gadzooks! (Yeah, I just did that.) A longtime local favorite has gotten a second location and we couldn’t be more excited about it. The Gadzooks Enchiladas Arcadia location is situated in the heart of Phoenix, serving up all the dishes you’ve come to love at their original location.

Gadzooks Enchiladas Arcadia Location Now OpenThe Basics

The Gadzooks Enchiladas Arcadia location is situated just east of 40th Street on Camelback Road in a triangular shaped lot. The 2100 square foot space has a large dining patio with a dedicated off ramp to welcome guests whether they are walking or biking in from the canal. The location was inspired by co-owners Aaron and Jared Pool.

“We really wanted Gazdooks’ new location to be welcoming to the canal,” Pool says. “It’s ironic because while I was a student at ASU, I took a design class taught by a professor who was obsessed with the canals and wanted to develop the canals as an alternative focus from the traditional street grid. I never thought I’d get the opportunity and now I share that passion for beautifying the canal.” To accomplish this goal, Pool worked with SRP to ensure Gadzooks will have lush landscaping without running afoul of the utility’s strict guidelines. “They said absolutely no trees are allowed along the canal, but otherwise were very open about us adding decorative landscaping.”

The Bites

The Gadzooks Enchiladas Arcadia location boasts the same gourmet menu of lively, from-scratch Mexican favorites served for breakfast, lunch and dinner, accentuated by an infinitely customizable selection of enchiladas (plus tacos, nachos, salads and breakfast fare) prepared with cooked-to-order tortillas, slow-braised meats, vegetables, Mexican cheeses and a variety of house-made sauces and salsas. The new location will also serve up custom craft beer created to pair perfectly with their spicy menu. Casa Blanca, a proprietary Bavarian style Hefeweizen that was locally made by Wren House Brewing Co., which just so happens to be co-owned by Drew Pool, Gadzooks owners brother.
