The Spicery

Favorite homestyle food. Love the old time atmosphere and the food is wonderful. Their homemade rolls and desserts are the best. You have to go to the old Glendale house and experience the lace tablecloths and mismatched china along with the great food..well worth the trip.

Great Mex

El Encanto in CC is awesome. John the Bar Tender really makes you feel at home. Great to eat in the garden as well!!!!

Casey Jones 29th st. and Bell rd.

They have something for everyone and the wings I have had in Phoenix. They have multiple big screen t.v.s, pool tables, family friendly. Good prices. full bar, and a train that runs around the entire place. It's a nice place for a family meal or a night out, even a business meeting.

Pretty Good

This was my first trip to Lo Los and it wont be my last either! I went this past saturday am, and its only monday and im craving it! The food was great, friendly people, however the only bad thing was that one plate came out about 10 minutes before the rest, which didnt make sense.. oh well, they are newly opened, hopefully they will get better, overall really good!!!

Best Snacks in Arizona

Dad's Nuts! No kidding that is the company name! They have a shop inside the Swap$Mart at 43rd and Thunderbird west of Hwy 17. They have the freshest Old Fashion Red and Black Licorice plus Macadamia Coconut Carmel Popcorn that is to die for! Everything is unique and always fresh. The owners are fun and make the whole "Dad's Nuts" experience fantasic. They have over 30 kinds of gourmet flavored almonds, pistachios and cashews. I hate to say it but, I LOVE DAD'S NUTS!

breakfast - Lunch - dinner

The coffee shop in Gilbert has the best breakfast burrito - for lunch the Olive Mill in Queen Creek the Gelato is yumm, dinner with some entertainment The Saddle Ranch in Glendale make sure you get a margarita with some cotton candy you'll love it.

Best Italian in the US

La Stalla Cucina Rustica in historic downtown Chandler is by far the best Italian food ever. The chef/owner prepares everything with authentic ingredients and never skimps on the quality - which becomes clearly evident upon tasting his yummy sauces. The prices are very reasonable for the always consistent quality and flavors. Friendly staff, sparkling clean wine glasses, comfortable atmosphere and awesome food make this a weekly night out for us. Save room for some outstanding desserts and an ice cold swig of limoncello - homemade of course!
