Seems Tucson is always getting Phoenix restaurants opening outposts here, but it's not often one of ours goes north.

This summer folks on the west side of Phoenix will find out the sinful joy of a decadent Sonoran hot dog prepared by one of the masters when El Güero Canelo opens its first Valley of the Sun restaurant. It's expected to open in early summer near 51st Avenue and West McDowell Road, which is an easy slip off Interstate 10 if you're heading to Arena or University of Phoenix Stadium.

El Güero has three Tucson locations, including its first, which owner Daniel Contreras opened in 1993 at 5201 N. 12th Ave. on the south side. Others: 2480 N. Oracle Road and 5802 E. 22nd St.
