Taqueria Lupita: Mexican Restaurant in Sonoyta, Mexico
For you Spanish speaking people the business card for this restaurant states: Especialidad en Tortas y Tacos de Carne Asada, Ricos Desayunos y a la Carta lo que Gusten.The menus in the restaurant are all in Spanish, but our waitress spoke English. We enjoyed the food, and the experience of eating in an authentic Mexican restaurant.
Favorite Dish: We ate chimichangas, beans and rice, home made corn tortilla chips with hot and mild sauces on the side, guacamole, and sliced cucumbers.

Gringo Pass: The Only Restaurant in Lukeville, Arizona
In Lukeville right next to the border crossing you will find a few business establishments. In this group you will find one restaurant with wonderful, traditional Mexican food at very inexpensive prices. Not only is this establishment a favorite with the folks from the campground across the street, but also of the local Mexicans.
Favorite Dish: The tamales are excellent! I also like the flautas, tacos, chicken chimichangas, and the traditional refried beans.

find it on your own: that's pretty funny
There is no place to eat if you're camping in the park. Stop at a grocery store if you have to, go down to Lukeville at Gringos Pass...eat at that diner and watch the border patrol, go up to Ajo and eat there if you must. Easier to bring your own food.
the agave plant next to the third saguaro on the l: The agave is edible
These spiny cactus like plants are in fact edible. Apparently, were a source of fiber (I bet!) for native americans living in the Sonoran Desert. Probably should not try to eat them nowadays, because all plant life in the park is protected.
