    FEZ: HIP CUISINE, FOOD, DRINKS, MUSIC

    by queencreekfreak Written Mar 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fez has a modern ambience, hip music, cool atmosphere. Excellent food and great martini and wine list. I recently had lunch with some colleagues at this hip eatery. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was fantastic. One of my co-workers had a lovely strawberry/blueberry almond salad that looked totally tasty. I myself enjoyed the Casablanca Chicken Sandwich - grilled checken breasts, pomegranate vinaigrette, goat cheese, sliced pears, dried cherries and field greens on ciabatta. It was awsome. We shared some excellent Kisra Bread with garlicky hummus, also great. We will definitely return. Now I want to go there for happy hour.

    Favorite Dish: Loved the Casablanca Chicken Sandwich. It had an excellent taste and the dried cherries added a wonderful tartness that complimented the other ingredients.

    Restaurant Mexico: The best authentic Mexican food in the States!

    by DarcyL Written May 1, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This little place has been around for a long time. The decor is simple and the waitresses are friendly. The food is not complicated or chic, it's just very delicious and very affordable.

    Favorite Dish: You must try the "Clare burro". It is whole beans, guacamole, fresh tomatillo salsa, and ranchero (crumbled white cheese). Healthy, tasty, wonderful.

    Islands Restaurants (chain): Islands Fine Burgers

    by Chiky Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The burgers here are topped with some very different embelishments but are not too exotic to prevent the enjoyment of everyone. The burgers come alone but you can order sides seperately. The sides are so big that you should resolve to sharing them with a friend if you want fries or onion rings or whatever else. There are also select chicken and fish dishes available. The restaurant is usually dimly lit and usually they have only booths, no tables (with free standing chairs). Each restuarant has a number of TV's situated around the dining area so you can equate the high energy surfing music to the footage of surfers in the big blue. All of the restaurants are non-smoking only.

    Favorite Dish: I personally try to expereince a new burger every time I go but I don't usually go if I'm only looking for chicken.

    The atmosphere is amazing! This is the cities secret treasure hidden just north of downtown Phoenix in a very inconspicuous place. The coffee selections are great and they use great coffee and quality mix-ins.

    Favorite Dish: Their White Chocolate Mocha is so perfect! they use Ghiridelli White Chocolate Syrup and whipped cream with a hint of espresso in it!

    5 & Diner (Chain): 5 & Diner 50's style diner

    by Chiky Written Feb 25, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very diner like with menu changes every so often to keep up the pace and interest. Defintely diner food where you may want to blot your food to absorb the excess grease. Very fun with the waiters and waitresses dressed in 50's style diner gear down to the change belts. The restaurant is very small but fun because it looks like an old trailer! Smoking and non-smoking inside restaurant. Open to smoking on the patio. Open 24 hours at select locations.

    Favorite Dish: The Reuben Sandwich on wheat and an extra thick vanilla shake suites me fine!

    Old Heidelberg Bakery: Authentic German Bakery in Phoenix

    by bilgeez Written Feb 26, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This really isn't a restaurant per se, but they do have a small "kafe klatsch" area, and have fresh-made sandwiches "belegtes brot" to go and they sell German-style sausage and cheese, mostly made in Illinois, as well as their most delectable German-style breads and pastries. The family that owns this bakery is second-generation from, Heidelberg, of course, the daughters of the owners run the shop now and they are every bit as attentive and treat everyone who comes in as if they were their only customer, whether it's your first visit or your thousandth! (I'm pretty much in the latter group!)
    The bakery also sells German magazines and greeting cards, so if you want to brush up on the latest gossip in Germany or want to find a card to send to a German friend, they will have these.

    Favorite Dish: Their "bauernbrot", light rye bread, is as good as any I've had in Germany. They also have awesome pumpernickle and dark rye and "brotchen" (rolls). As mentioned above, they have a large selection of "wurst", mostly from Illinois, some from California. They are also very authentic. Try the cervalat, a very tasty salami-style sausage. They also have Black Forest ham and others. They also offer a nice variety of cheeses, mostly American made, from Wisconsin or Illinois, that are very authentic to German and Swiss cheeses. They have a very good Ementhaler, that may be Swiss, and some very good other types of German-style, domestically produced cheese.
    Of course, the pastries, are the crowning glory of this bakery. They have so many torts and struessels and such, I can't name them all, but they have them, and all are excellent!
    The store is in east-central Phoenix and is open every day but Monday. They also close in summer for a few weeks for holiday. Call around the end of June to see when they will be shut for their vacation!
    If you are German tourists that are homesick fuer deutsches Art Lebensmittle, this is the place to visit. If you want authentic German baked goods without having to go to Germany, this is the place to visit!

    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.

    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!

    Cooper's Tpwm: Great Food

    by changeinlatitude Written Mar 13, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What a fun place and great food. The portions are huge. There is indoor and outdoor seating and from what I understand, it is quite a happening place at night.

    If you are into baseball memorabilia, you will enjoy looking at Alice's collection throughout the restaurant. There are plenty of TV's, so you can watch just about any sporting event happening at the time.

    Check out the shop and make sure you get a t-shirt.

    Favorite Dish: Grilled chicken sandwich. The fries are WONDERFUL!!

    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!

    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.

    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
