Help a transplanted DC 'Hound find some good food!

Hi, welcome to AZ!

For Cuban, I haven't been, but I hear that Havana Cafe is good. A bit pricey compared to what I'm used to from the East Coast.

For Greek, we like My Big Fat Greek Restaurant, a few locations. I don't consider restaurants with more than one location a chain, but you might. Great appetizers and you can even get out cheaply by getting the sandwich platters instead of dinner platters.

Great place for Subs in general is Jersey Mikes. They're a chain, but they slice the cold cuts to order, have authentic jersey-style subs, and their cheesesteak is good too.
Corleone's cheesesteaks are probably closer to the Philly ones.

For quick Mexican, this may not be in your area, but Los Taquitos was on Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives, and is excellent and cheap. They're near the I-10 on Elliott Rd., toward Chandler. Definitely worth checking out at least once. True family mom-and-pop place.
