GET LOCA.

LOCA POPA is the dream of two sisters to share their love of food, fresh ingredients, fun flavors and sense of adventure with the wonderful people of their home state of Arizona. Growing up in a large family where home-cooked meals were a common occurrence, we learned that food is about more than just the ingredients that go into it. An emphasis on family meals taught us that eating is not only a way to nourish the body, but also the soul. The ability to travel as we grew up cultivated in us a sense of adventure and desire to try new things and experience new cultures through their foods. Finally, growing older we have learned that food DOES matter... what it is, where it came from and how it's prepared.  We believe in serving real food, made fresh from real ingredients, with an emphasis on plant-based foods from the earth, that not only taste delicious, but are good for you!

REAL FOOD.

Whatever you order at LOCA POPA, we guarantee you it's fresh and it's from scratch. All our hummus and falafel is homemade, from dried beans soaked over night. Our juices are pressed every morning using ONLY fresh fruits and veggies.  Our soups change daily because we make them from scratch. You'll never find a frozen or pre-prepared product on the LO-PO. You are what you eat... make sure it's REAL!

ReAL PEOPLE.

In addition to all the fresh ingredients, LOCA POPA's food is full of LOVE. We think about our customers with every lemon we squeeze and every ginger molasses cookie we roll out by hand! We stand behind everything we make and we promise we will never cut any corners in terms of quality of food or service.  We also love our beautiful state of Arizona and the wonderful people in it, so we'll always do our best to support other local business and charities.

CRAZY GOOD.

Why "LOCA POPA"? Well, POPA is our last name, so there's that! LOCA, because... well...  we're a little "LOCA" too! Life's too short to be taken too seriously, so love those around you, eat food that tastes good and is good for you and have some fun! We believe in smiling, taking risks, going on adventures and finding joy in each and every day... come GET LOCA with us!

WHAT IS FALAFEL?


Don't worry! It's our most frequently asked question! Let us explain...

 

FAL-WHAT?

Falafel is a deep fried ball made from chickpeas (garbanzo beans), onion, garlic and all sorts of yummy spices. They are a typical Middle Eastern street food. They are crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside.  We can describe it as a chickpea fritter... a vegetarian meatball if you will... A hush puppy with more flavor and protein... "a deep fried ball of goodness" as one of our friends would say... Any way you look at it, they are delicious and its about time you got some falafel in your life!

WHY ARE 2 GREEK GIRLS FROM ARIZONA SERVING UP A MIDDLE EASTERN CLASSIC?

Because it's delicious! (If you need more information, we can tell you the full story!)

WHERE'S THE MEAT?

Yes, falafel is vegetarian! Do not fear, you will not leave LOCA POPA hungry.  Garbanzo beans are one of the best sources of plant-based protein... plus they are packed full of fiber, so you won't feel hungry. Falafel can be enjoyed by vegans, vegetarians and the biggest of meat-lovers alike!

HOW DO I EAT IT?

Our falafel is delicious enough to be eaten alone! You can also get it on a platter with some of our homemade hummus and tabouli salad and dip it in our delicious homemade sauces. We also offer our falafel wrapped up in a pita, packed full with a delicious combination of fresh toppings. Try one of our combos... or if you're feeling creative, make your own. Either way, we know you're gonna love it!
