Upward Projects are all about creating inspired restaurants that are connected to the communities they serve. Upward Projects began 11 years and has since grown into something many Zonies still get excited about when they announce a new location or restaurant.

Joyride Taco House, set in the ever growing and vibrant downtown Gilbert, Arizona, has an insane atmosphere. The good reviews, the location, and of course, the delicious food draws you in. It is the music, the employees and the house made cocktails that make you want to stay.

Joyride Taco House mealBoth locations of Joyride Taco House (Gilbert and Phoenix) have some really great deals on Tuesday nights. From 2:00 PM to close you can get $2 tacos such as braised beef, chicken tinga, crispy fish and more.  The chicken tinga taco is one of my favorites. It includes avocado, cabbage, cilantro and white magic. White magic is essentially just a house lime aioli sauce, but it sure is delicious. The Tuesday night specials also include great deals on their house made margaritas or pitchers of your favorite Mexican beer for $5. One of my favorite margaritas that they offer on special is their blood orange margarita. It is a blend of tequila, triple sec, house blood orange sour and hibiscus syrup. To make things even better about Joyride Taco House, from 2 to 6 p.m you can double up on deals by taking advantage of the their weekday happy hour. Those specials include $4 quesadilla or $6 ceviche. But you don’t have to stop at what is on special that night. Why not splurge on some of their other delicious items including burritos, enchiladas or one of their agua frescas, which are made fresh daily. You can order pineapple, ,cucumber mint or almond horchata; virgin or spiked. And the best part? You get to decide what type of booze you want to add. You can choose from tequila, vodka, rum, gin, amaretto or frangelico.  I would highly recommend the pineapple with tequila. It is absolutely delicious.

I am telling you guys, they know what they’re doing. So when you get a chance to visit Arizona, make sure you hit up Joyride Taco House. I would recommend visiting the Phoenix location over the Gilbert location. Phoenix doesn’t seem to have quite as long of a wait time as the Gilbert location does. Either one you chose, you are sure to enjoy!

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I have always considered myself a foodie, but in my adult life my palate has truly matured. I went from a “ketchup only” girl, to a “let’s see how THIS tastes girl…” My husband and I love to try new restaurants and with the ever evolving culinary world in Phoenix, we can always find somewhere new to go. Whether it’s a taco shop, the newest burger place or even a local winery, we are up for the culinary adventure that Arizona has started offering us desert dwellers. My husband and I own a small company; Tremaine Ranch. We are a staging, design & furniture rental company that specializes in all things unique. We offer custom built furniture, event styling & staging, as well as run a private estate in Chandler, Arizona where we host private events and weddings. With a recognizable aesthetic and a keen eye for design, my creative direction and styling has created what Tremaine Ranch is most recognized for. Throwing parties and events has always played a huge part of my life. Whether it was planning a circus themed birthday party or just inviting friends over for a Greek themed dinner party, no detail goes unnoticed. Not only do I spend time planning inspiration photoshoots or dinners to throw at their ranch, I also run a lifestyle blog with my husband featuring our own favorites in the world of style, DIY, travel, recipes and entertaining at Tremaine Ranch. I am thrilled to be a part of the Girls on Food blog and can’t wait to share with you all what Phoenix, Arizona has to offer. Cheers!
