Coming food trek to Phoenix and " The Valley of the Sun "

My older brother and I take mini foodie treks in the spring when he visits from Oregon, this year we are coming to Phoenix and surrounding communities in March. Though I've lived in Arizona for the past 30+ years and have traveled and stayed in Phoenix many, many times I've not really had the time to explore the local non-chain eateries. With that said I would love suggestions in that direction. The only criteria we have is: no Mexican restaurants as we have eaten in many such eateries through out Arizona already and there are many of those where I live, and because we are cheap and we do want to try as many as we can in a 3 day period, we would prefer the $ to $$ price range. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

British Honeymoon Couple in Yuma 15 May 2013.. any ideas?

There are several local Mexican family restaurants that are popular here in Yuma. Over my 30 + years living here and eating in most if not all of them I still prefer any of the 3 restaurants owned by the Gutierrez family. La Casa Gutierrez is close to the older part of Yuma on Orange Ave & 5th, it is more of a traditional sit down family restaurant, Mr. G's, is on the corner of 4th Ave & 5th St in the north end of town also just a few blocks west, The Chile Pepper is on 24th St between 4th Ave and Ave A which is more in the middle of town close to the hospital. both of these last two locations are more of a local fast food/ cafe type of restaurant. Another of my choices would be Mi Rancho on the corner of 4th Ave & 27th St also in mid town. My picks are not to say the others are bad, like most ethnic foods everyone has their personal preferences these are mine.
