Salsa Fiesta is a wonderful small local Mexican restaurant located in Wilcox. We both had a tamale and a Chili Rellano. The tamale was very good, and the Chili Rellano was the best I have ever had! The anahime chili it was made with was so mild and flavorful, the batter around the chili was delightfully light. I wish I could get these in Cody.
Chiles Rellanos: These are roasted, peeled, and stuffed chile peppers. Usually stuffed with cheese, then dipped in a batter and fried.
Mexican Tamali: These are typically shredded meat often beef, but sometimes chicken or pork, although in rare cases they may be filled with a chili pepper. The filling is rolled in a cornmeal coating, wrapped in cornhusks and steamed.
Favorite Dish: The Chili Rellano, yum!
For food, you have two choices. Bring your own or drive about 36 miles to Willcox (Willcox is worth a visit anyway). If you go to Willcox try the Plaza Restaurant or Rodney's. Both are on my Willcox page.
Bring your food to the park unless you want to take a couple hours out of your day to go back to Willcox. The food in Willcox looked to be diner fare with either a tex-mex or barbecue flair. The park sells water and a little more at the visitor center. We brought some lunchable type meals and some crackers and good energy hiking food.
Bring you own food to this park!! There are no resteraunts nearby. Also, Bring PLENTY of water. It gets HOT during the day and if you are hiking you will need it!!
Favorite Dish: We had ham sandwiches and some chewy granola bars for the hike and made up some eggs for breakfast over a fire! Nothing like campfire breakfsts!
