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.
$10 as of December 2013. I like Thai Food and I wanted to try this place because I liked the name. As you might expect; the food and atmosphere here is a bit more homelike than most Thai restaurants. Like you might expect if your mom WAS Thai. Hours are 11 AM to 9 PM Monday through Thursday, 11 AM to 12 AM Friday and Saturday and 4 PM to 9 PM on Sunday. Conveniently located in downtown Phoenix.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed my Kao Man Kai.
$11 as of December 2013. The Courtyard Cafe is associated with, and colacted with, the Heard Museum. The cafe serves authentic Southwestern and Inidain (Native American) dishes. Try a Fry Bread Sundae for desert. Hours are 11 AM to 3 PM daily. You do not have to pay museum admission to eat here.
Favorite Dish: Posole (roasted pulled pork, sautéed onions, pinto beans, tomato, hominy, cheddar cheese.
$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.
$8 as of December 2013. Rated as one of "The Best of Phoenix & Tucson" by Don & Betty Martin. The food here was pretty inexpensive and was well-prepared. The portions were good too. The people that own/work here are friendly too. Well worth a try if you want Chinese food. Hours are 11 AM to 9 PM Monday through Thursday, 11 AM to 9:30 PM Friday, 11:30 AM to 9:30 PM Saturday, and 11:30 AM to 9 PM on Sunday.
Favorite Dish: Garlic Chicken.
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 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!
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!
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!
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.)
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'.
Good food.... be prepared to wait outside, and to wait for half an hour or more.
No frills, tiny place - so small, doesn't have a restroom, you have to use the one in the business next door!
but the food was good, and I would def go back!
Just the perfect place to start a perfect day with perfect pancakes. What a pleasure! That's the kind of dining places, Germany really lacks of at least for folks like me that simply love pancakes & waffles.
Restaurant sits in a very nice area & park. Nice ambience. Great fresh salad, steak medium with way too soft and fatty fried fries, nice & cold Budweiser. Over all it was ok yet the waitress that served us was pretty unfriendly, and bothered that we didn't understand her English with extremly heavy accent. Would not necessarily recommend this restaurant though it does look wonderful.
Tacos, burritos, and other light fare. Two Hippies Beach House, right across 40th from Paradise Valley Hospital, is a good enough place for lunch, and the decor is lively and very fun as it is in every Two Hippies. I personally just don't like it as much as the original location on Indian School and 8th Street (802 E. Indian School.) I've tried the beef burritos and the fish tacos and burritos.
There are several other Phoenix locations: 501 E. Camelback; in Sunnyslope at 8945 N. 7th St., where Cave Creek and Dunlap converge; 5341 and 4306 N. 7th Ave.; 3102 N. 16th St.; 4034 N. 24th St.; and a few others in the Valley: 6222 N. 43rd Ave., Glendale; 3015 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale; and 1245 W. Baseline, Mesa, but NONE I've visited has had the Numero Uno food and funkiness still found at the ORIGINAL Indian School locale.
Food's economical and fairly plentiful, but not so flavorful. No burgers at the 40th St. shop.
Hey, if you want burgers and LOTS of fries, go to Indian School!
(And if you want burritos go to Ramiro's or any of the -bertos or La Tolteca on Van Buren!)
Favorite Dish: They're all passable. Rather have the Bleu Cheese or magic Mushroom Burger and fries on Indian School!
