Wadda may be a small shack within a wall, but their street tacos are a Scottsdale staple. The tasty taqueria serves tacos with chicken and carne asada steak, both prepared on a coal-fired grill. Choose between soft flour tortillas or crunchy corn tortillas, and then top off your taco with cheese, cabbage, fresh limejuice, and homemade pico de gallo. Tacos are cheap, service is extremely fast, and the stand is open into the wee hours of the night. Swing by for lunch during the workday or for a midnight snack after a night on the town.
