Two Brothers Kitchen

Full service Organic breakfast/lunch restaurant offering breakfast all day. Open for dinner Thurs-Sat, featuring our regular menu & nightly dinner specials.

Reviewed By BJ K - Tempe, Arizona

Pleasant, friendly staff are accommodating of special dietary needs.

Food is not inexpensive but you can count on clean and organic high quality food with grass-fed beef and organic cage-free poultry.

We usually eat at Two Brothers for lunch rather than breakfast. They make a soup daily from scratch and I've enjoyed their soups.

The atmosphere is ordinary strip mall cafe. It's clean and comfortable, unpretentious and by no means trendy or well-decorated.

If you like to eat clean food, I highly recommend Two Brothers.

Starbucks

Reviewed By Tamara M - Scottsdale, Arizona

Wow!! I was always a big fan of this Starbucks, but things have definitely changed and not in a positive way. Sadly, the service has gone down drastically. In the past, when we walked in the staff were very friendly and accommodating. This time, the staff were very aloof. It seemed like the drinks took longer than usual to make and there was no thank you from anyone who worked there. We have been coming to this Starbucks for years and are very disappointed to see this.

Saw the big DONUT sign while eating near by the evening before our visit and had to return in the morning to try one (well, actually, more than one!) of these and so happy we did. Being from New England we're used to your typical Dunkin pastry and what a treat it was to have a "real" donut! The smell alone brings you back to home made donuts and pastries and every bite of every piece we "sampled" was delish. Next time, and there will be one, we'll try some more varieties. We felt the pricing was very on target and not expensive at all.

Desert Donuts

A unique donut experience, warm & made to order!! Desert Donuts is a family owned and operated donut and coffee shop in northern Phoenix just off I-17 and Carefree Hwy (SR-74). We feature made to order donuts that are served to you HOT! and locally roasted and fresh ground coffee.

Awesome place! The best part about the donut is that it is so fresh and soft! So many variations to pick from as far as toppings! Quick service! You gotta check it out!

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. First a couple of clarifications, The other name you will find for this restaurant is Roberto's. They are both the same place but we didn't find that clearly explained in the reviews we read. The second thing we missed when reading reviews was that this is a counter order restaurant. You order, they serve you. We were really wanting a server restaurant to sit and chat but in the end we were able to do so.
The staff were very knowledgeable and more than happy to help us decide on our meals. They even offered us samples of things we were interested in which was very helpful with our children. I believe we were all happy with our choices. The food, to our Midwestern palate was pretty authentic Mexican. I'm a bigger fan of tex mex, but my husband was thrilled with the authenticity. Still we all enjoyed our dinner! Give it a try!

In-N-Out Burger

At In-N-Out Burger, quality is everything. Stop by to enjoy our menu of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries and shakes. In-N-Out makes fast food the old fashioned way.

Reviewed By Robert A - Anthem, Arizona

This burger joint is the place for Great Burgers, fries, service, low prices and clean. It is clearly a favorite lunch spot for locals and travelers alike. Their double double is the killer but I ordered the #2 regular cheeseburger combo...so good I reordered another cheeseburger. Awesome. All for about $7!

My daughter and I love Auntie Anne's. After walking around the outlet shops, we got our favorite - the pretzel sticks - and she got an Icee, as well. Never disappointed with this place.

Tortas Chano

Authentic Mexican Food from the heart of Chihuahua, Mexico . A blessing to have all the family dedicate their talents here in the Restaurant.

Reviewed By nancyandbrian2016 - Scottsdale, Arizona

We stopped in for the first time on our way to Prescott. We were super-impressed with clean restaurant and friendly owner. We really enjoyed the Chile Rellenos and would definitely order again! Shredded Beef Enchiladas were also nicely spiced and flavorful. Highly recommend this place if you are traveling on the road up north, and definitely must visit if you live in the area. Prospero Ano!

Gio's Pizza

Reviewed By beachrestaurantfan - washington dc

Not easy to find, near Walmart, but worth the effort.
Warm, friendly welcome. Not much atmosphere, but if feels like a pizza joint, not a restaurant.
Neve white pizza amazing. So is the traditional Margarita with everything on it. Spectacular.
Found the stuffed pizza not such a great experience. Why? Too many flavors overwhelming.
Great vibe, great attitude, unquestionable commitment to an exceptional customer experience.

Shanghai Club

Reviewed By azallaire - Phoenix, Arizona

We moved to AZ over twenty years ago and found the original Royal China on Shea Blvd. A second place opened in Anthem. we used to go to Anthem to see if the experience was different. Great at both places! Shea closed and we had to make the long drive to Anthem, but it was worth it to do so. About ten years ago we moved closer. So now it's just a six mile trip to get Chinese food at the only Chinese place we go to!!!
