    Mint Thai Cafe: Tasty Thai Cuisine in the Phoenix area - Gilbert

    by Nor_Cal_Brad Updated Jun 15, 2014

    Everything that we had at Mint Thai Cafe in Gilbert, AZ was very tasty. The portions were generous, and there is a very large selection of dishes on the menu, including some vegetarian options.

    The lunch specials are served from 11 am - 3 pm everyday, and they are a very good deal for $6.95. We went for a late lunch, at about 1:30 pm on a Saturday, and the restaurant was fairly empty.

    The staff was friendly, the service was prompt, and the restaurant was clean.

    Favorite Dish: I personally liked the Pad Thai (with Chicken) the most of the dishes that I tried here. The Spicy Cashew (with Pork) was also very good, as was the Pad See Ewe (with Chicken). The Pad Thai was very tasty, with just the right amount of garlic and veggies. Some Thai restaurants tend to make the sauce overly sweet, but the Mint Thai Cafe did a great job on their sauce.

    For dessert, I would recommend the Fried Banana with Coconut Ice Cream.

    I just want to emphasize again that you can get a great deal if you show up during lunch (11 am - 3 pm) to get the $6.95 lunch special. Each of the included pictures are from the lunch special menu.

    FEZ: Great late night option

    by blueskyjohn Updated Apr 22, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I came across FEZ while searching for a late night eatery. I arrived late into Phoenix and was starving. There are several options but chose FEZ this time.

    It almost has a club atmosphere with techno music playing but not too loud where you can't enjoy your meal. They have indoor and outdoor seating. I chose to sit outdoors since it was a beautiful evening. The waiter was very friendly and made an excellent beer suggestion.

    From the menu I ordered the Tan-Tan Chicken sandwich but requested to replace the chicken with the Black Bean Veggie burger. The sandwich comes with hummus spread, green olives, oven roasted tomatoes, spinach and a bell pepper aioli. I also switched out the tomatoes for avocado.

    The sandwich was excellent! A definite repeat for me, any time of day.

    Hours:

    The Habit: Charbroiled Burgers

    by AVSENT Written Feb 22, 2014

    This is a new fast food burger chain in Phoenix that chars the burger and is a welcome change. This makes an out of the box burger tasty enough to eat (charred). I had the double teriyaki burger and fries. It went down good with a soda. The second time I went I was surprised to find tempura green beans on the menu. I've been looking for something to eat beside fries-an this was it. Probably, a little healthier than french fries. They were very good.

    Favorite Dish: Tempura green beans

    Red Robin: Good Burgers

    by AVSENT Written Jan 12, 2014

    Well, when I want a good burger I go here or TGIF. I like the big flat screens they have- I like watching while waiting for the food. I like the Hawaiian burger with the teriyaki sauce and pineapple. Or, anything with BBQ sauce or bacon or cheddar or Swiss cheese. They come out hot and most of the time I get the bottomless sweet potato fries. I'm slightly addicted to sweet potato fries.
    The place is clean for the most part and has a slight sports bar atmosphere. The location at Happy Valley Rd sometimes has slow service with sometimes unpleasant staff. I've not had problems with the Peoria location. Make sure to join the rewards club and get your free birthday burger. No complaints about the food.

    Favorite Dish: Bonzai Burger

    Alice Cooperstown Restaurant: A Must See and Do

    by Basaic Updated Dec 11, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I guess you would call this a bar and grill but with excellent barbecue and lots of music memorabilia. A MUST for any rock and roll or Alice Cooper fan. From the moment you see the "Welcome to My Restaurant" sign over the door you know you are in for something different. Browse the memorabilia and the menu with items named for sports, music and other cultural celebrities. If you are really hungry try the "Big Unit Hot Dog" which is a 22 inch beef hot dog with fries (It was named for famed Diamondbacks pitcher Randy Johnson NOT a porn star) or order the ""Bill O'Reilly" Independence Fund BBQ and a portion of the cost is donated to charity. Hours are 11 AM to 9 PM Monday through Thursday, 11 AM to 10 PM Friday and Saturday and 11 AM to 5 PM on Sunday. Hors are extended on gamedays. Located close to Chase Field and the U.S. Airways Center.

    Favorite Dish: "No More Mr. Nice Guy" Chipotle Chicken Pasta. Nice and spicy. It's got a kick like Alice Cooper.

    Zoe's Kitchen: Trendy Cafe

    by Basaic Written Dec 10, 2013

    $11 as of December 2013. The food at Zoe's tends toward Mediterranean-style with an emphasis on Greek Food and an eye toward natural ingredients and healthy eating. The decor is very bright and colorful and the staff was efficient and friendly. Wi-Fi hotspot too. They appeared to do quite a take-out business and the clientele tending towards college students and young urban professionals. They are more common in the Southeastern US.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Greek Chicken Marinara Pasta which had a very bold (almost overpowering) taste.

    Greektown: Great Greek!

    by razorbacker Written Sep 26, 2013

    Brenda's favorite Greek restaurant in the Valley ... and Greek's our FAVORITE! Very nice and soothing decor. George is attentive and quick with his recommendations. We go here for special treats.

    Favorite Dish: I like them all! But I particularly like the Chicken George: char-grilled chicken breast, sauteed with egg-lemon, garlic, artichoke hearts, and mushrooms. O-PA! Also partial to the Saganaki Flambeau!

    Wy Knot Cafe: Award winning French Toast!

    by blueskyjohn Updated May 5, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wy Knot is in an area with several restaurants that are either converted from houses or just box type small buildings. Nondescript, whole in the wall with great food. They do have some outdoor seating in front and the interior is nicely decorated with painting from local artist. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Stuffed French Toast. Amazing! They hand roll cinnamon into the dough before baking the bread. The slices are nearly 3 inches thick. Then it is stuffed with their home made cream cheese and topped off with slices of banana. If you're want a decadent breakfast this is a must!

    Alice Cooperstown: Sports, Music & Food

    by kehale Written May 28, 2012

    When we decided we would be visiting Phoenix, my boyfriend knew right away that he wanted to eat at Cooperstown. The restaurant is owned by the one and only Alice Cooper, and after seeing it on Man vs. Food, we wanted to check it out first hand.

    The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect in a restaurant dedicated to sports and music - huge screens behind the expansive bar to take in sporting events, memorabilia everywhere, and the staff dressed a little like shock rockers themselves.

    Everyone was friendly, and the menu really had something for every taste. We both had a hard time choosing, with so many tasty sounding options on the menu.

    Definitely a great place to hit up before you head to a Suns or Diamondbacks game, since it's close to both stadiums. The patio is huge and has tons of fans to keep patrons cool in the hot desert heat.

    Favorite Dish: I opted for "Cheech Marin's" Sierra Station Shrimp Wrap, and man was it good! It was crunchy and soft all at the same time, with the right amount of kick from the jalapeno's! Definitely a bit of an indulgent meal, but since you're on vacation... why not go for it? I'd order it again for sure!!

    If you're headed there with a big appetite, be sure to order "The Big Unit" or "Adam Richman's" Bases Loaded Big Unit. That's a lot of hot dog!

    It's not hard to find... The giant patio Seated for dinner

    Phoenix Public Market: Food Truck Friday!

    by kehale Written May 14, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As usual, we did some food research before we left for Phoenix. My other half discovered that Phoenix had a public market that was known for it's "Food Truck Friday", and lucky for us, we only had a Friday in Phoenix. When we arrived at the Market (a little later than the 1:30 end time for the food trucks), we were happy to see that they were still serving food. There was a pretty good selection of trucks, so we had a walk around to see what struck our interest. My boyfriend decided on the Filipino food from "Hey Joe!" and I went for one of the specialty hot dogs from "Short Leash". We were also pleased to see that the dining area was covered and had fans and misters running to keep the diners cool - perfect in the desert! We only wish we had more time to relax and sample some different items from different trucks. I guess that just gives us more reason to go back to Phoenix!

    Favorite Dish: I ordered the "Oliver" dog from Short Leash. I opted for the Chicken dog which was a very tasty choice! The Sauerkraut on it had some nice bite to it, and I loved that the dogs come wrapped in a flat bread, as opposed to a bun. So tasty! If I had the chance, I would love to go back and sample more of their tasty dogs! YUM!

    Chino Bandido Takee-Outee: Chinamex fusion: flavorful and fun!

    by razorbacker Updated May 6, 2012

    Beyond description, but they'll give you a number of samples so you can decide. Each combination ($7.25) comes with two entrees, one choice each of rice and beans, and a delicious cookie. This place is so fun it's handed down by generations!

    Favorite Dish: Entree-wise, probably the Jade Red Chicken and the Veggie Quesadilla though the Jerk Chicken and Emerald Chicken are good, too. As far as the rice and beans for me there's no contest: jerk rice and black beans. Forget the diet, and DON'T forget the chocolate volcano cookie (weekends only.)

    Street entrance. Jade Red, Chinese BBQ, black beans, and jerk rice. Everybody Veggie quesadilla and emerald chicken. The great Chino Bandido.

    La FONTANELLA: Wonderful Friendly Ambience!

    by ViajesdelMundo Updated Feb 15, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Originally from Chicago, this family restaurant has been in Phoenix area for 26 years, and beeen voted one of the best in the area many times. You are greeted warmly at the door by the Italian owners, the service is top rate, the food gourmet, the setting not often found in new cities such as Phoenix. See their WEBSITE!

    Reservations are definitely a good thing, especially on weekend, and your meal should not take less than a couple hours; Continental style.

    WE RETURNED a second time on our latest visit to our granddaughter and again everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and food. It was Valentine's weekend, and altho VERY busy, everything was handled beautifully and minimal waiting.

    Favorite Dish: Have only eaten here the once, each of us ordered different dishes and all were most delicious; mine was the lamb shank Aglassato,a Sicilian dish and one of their 'Signature Dishes'.
