For Mexican, you mostly have the Americanized mexican places like a Chili's or On the Border or you go for a hole in the wall place. Filiberto's is a burrito shack type place all over the city. People seem to love them, just make sure your stomach is used to that kind of food or you might be fire bombing your flight.
I'm not sure what sports bars are down town other than the chains or Majerle's.
(worst description ever forthcoming)
theres this taco truck surrounded by barbed wire with a blue tarp over it near the airport car return that has the best chicken torta that i have had in my life. if you leave the car place and head west on buckeye. you turn left on to one of the next streets and this place is no less than 2 miles on your right as you drive down said road. i have tried 100 times to find it on google maps but no luck. it was so delicious
