Mexican Lighter Fare

At Ocho Locos Mexican Restaurant and Cantina, we offer a wide variety of hearty dishes inspired by the unique flavors of Mexico. If you're in the mood for lighter fare, though, we have you covered as well. We have many selections that won't leave you ready for a siesta after your meal!


A bowl of Mexican soup can be the perfect treat on a cool Arizona evening. When you want to warm your insides but aren't in the mood for a full meal, stop by Ocho Locos and try one of our flavorful soups. For a spicy, light treat, try one of our customer favorites - the chicken tortilla soup. We start with a zesty tomato broth and add fresh vegetables and tender chicken pieces. Then we top it off with tortilla strips, cheese, and creamy avocado slices.

If our chicken tortilla isn't the soup for you, warm up with a cup or bowl of our famous albondigas soup. We add a generous helping of rice and vegetables to our special spicy broth, then add Mexican meatballs and serve our albondigas soup with a warm tortilla perfect for dipping!


Want to keep it light, but craving something a bit heartier than soup? Dig in to one of our taco salads! We load a warm flour tortilla bowl with fresh greens, then heap on diced tomatoes, onions, black olives, and shredded cheese. Freshly prepared guacamole and sour cream top this taco salad for a deliciously light meal. Choose from machaca beef, ground beef, or shredded chicken, or go veggie to keep the calories in check!

We also offer our classic Locos salad, perfect for vegetarians and light eaters. Our Locos salad features fresh mixed greens topped with cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, and shredded cheese with your choice of dressing.


Try our fajitas for a satisfying meal that won't leave you feeling stuffed. We grill fresh vegetables and serve them on a sizzling plate with warm tortillas and sides of pico de gallo, sour cream, and our signature guacamole. Go veggie or choose from shrimp, steak, or chicken for a delicious treat!

Of course, we also offer a wide selection of beverages to go with your meal. Try our skinny margarita, made with club soda, lime juice, 1800 Blanco tequila and a splash of triple sec for a refreshing 120-calorie drink. You can also choose from our selection of wines and other cocktails to complement your meal.
