I think the name and good ratings should tell most of the story. It is a house that sells great fry bread! Granted, fried bread is always good, but their take on it is great.
What really keeps me coming back to this place is their hot sauce. It is a amazing blend of red peppers and a sweetness that I cannot put my finger on. I sometimes drink it straight from the bottle, much to the chagrin of people around me. For me, the fry bread is simply a good substrate to deliver this heavenly red sauce. I have tried it on savory items like the bean and cheese fry bread. I have also tried it on the sweet ones like the chocolate syrup and powdered sugar fry bread. What I am saying is TRY THE HOT SAUCE, it is groin grabbingly transcendent, as Homer Simpson would say.
The menu has some non-fry bread options, but I have never seen anyone order them. The small parking lot fills quickly, so be prepared to park around the corner. The line can be long as well, as they move at their own pace. It is worth the wait.
This is one calorie-laden stop that is worth a try.
The Fry Bread House is located at 4140 N. 7th Ave. in Melrose — 602.351.2345
