Savor The Flavors Of Fall At Gadzooks

Brown-Sugar-Glazed-Pumpkin-CookieFall is just around the corner and Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup is showcasing the flavors of the season a bit early with its house-made Brown Sugar Glazed Pumpkin Cookie. Made from scratch and fresh-baked daily, these “deliciously addictive” cookies are actually based on the family recipe of Gadzooks owner, Aaron Pool.

“Growing up, my mother was known for two incredible recipes that helped inspire me to create Gadzooks; her chicken enchiladas and her pumpkin cookies,” says Pool. In fact, Pool says, it was his mother’s chicken enchiladas recipe that first inspired him to create a gourmet build-your-own enchilada restaurant. “So when it came time to create a signature dessert at Gadzooks, there was no question it would have to be my mother’s famous Brown Sugar Glazed Pumpkin Cookies.”

Aside from crave-able cookies, Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup tempts with an infinitely-customizable menu of enchiladas (all also available as salads) made with cooked-to-order tortillas, slow-braised meats, vegetables, Mexican cheeses and a variety of house-made sauces and salsas. Assembled to order inside a handsome terra cotta cazuela, or Mexican casserole dish, each enchilada is then quick-cooked inside a gas-fired wood stone oven, which uses a stone slab preheated to 575-degrees to perfectly brown the enchiladas and freshly-shredded cheese, before it’s topped to order and served piping hot. Of course, Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup also serves up a tasty house-made tortilla soup, as well as street tacos, salads and a selection of beers and cocktails such as the Osborne Oro margarita made with fresh-squeezed ruby red grapefruit, lime and brown sugar simple syrup.

Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup is located at 3313 North 7th Street in Phoenix. For more information, call 602.279.5080 or visit
