ABOUT US
SOMOS FAMILIA

At Phoenix Coqui our mission is to serve real Puerto Rican food with warm service that feels like home.

Our head cook, Juan Alberto Ayala, is from Toa Alta, Puerto Rico and grew up inspired by his parents' and grandparents' recipes. From deliciously filled empanadas to the best Mofongo in the SouthWest, plus our affordable meal deal, we’ve got options on our menu that will suit everyone’s tastes. If there’s one thing that our team cares about, besides cooking up some of the best comfort food in Phoenix, is treating all of our customers like family. We’re devoted to making our customer service truly special and greeting you with a warm smile so that we can make your day great.

Stop by our new restaurant for a taste of "La Isla" and allow us to give you the full Puerto Rican experience!
