One of the things we love about living in the North Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree area is the opportunity to enjoy the many restaurants in the area.
We’ve got a huge selection to choose from when it comes to unique and quality restaurants. A valley favorite that has been a staple to the community for 25 years is El Encanto. It’s tucked in the heart of Cave Creek, a true, authentic Mexican restaurant with a Southwest flair.
As you enter the arched stucco entrance, you’ll immediately recognize that authentic Mexican atmosphere. The intricate hand carved bars, lovely seating on the patio that surrounds a pond filled with wildlife plus a friendly wait staff will win you over from the start.
Enjoy a beautiful Arizona Spring day on the patio that surrounds the duck pond. If you have to wait for a seat or the kids get a little antsy, just head over and feed the ducks and enjoy the scenery. For our thirsty friends, grab a drink while you wait, our personal favorite is the house margarita with a splash of Gran Marnier. As you browse the menu, you’ll find traditional Mexican dishes as well as some great one of a kind house specialties. There is nothing that we’ve had we didn’t love.
Looking for a great Sunday Brunch spot, we highly suggest you check out El Encanto’s! Grab a mimosa to start and dive right in.
Once you’re done with brunch, head over to the surrounding shops and find unique Western goods, hot sauces, decor and more!
