In 1992, Cecelia Miler, a Tohono O’odham woman and native of Arizona, decided to open a public restaurant for Indian people to gather and eat as they would at home. Tohono O’odham people are known throughout the Southwest for their Red Chili Beef, hand-stretched flour tortillas and frybread.
The Fry Bread House is a James Beard Award Winner and multiple time Best of Phoenix winner. The family still oversees both of their restaurants in Phoenix and Mesa. The Fry Bread House continues to cater both to the urban Indian and non-Indian community in Phoenix and beyond. They believe strongly in continuing to introduce Tohono O’odham food to the people of Arizona and visitors alike. The Fry Bread House also hosts artwork from local and regional Native artists.
Local tip: When you visit, save room for dessert – frybread with sweet toppings like honey, powdered sugar, and chocolate.
