I waited a while to write this because I was uncertain how it would be accepted. However, because of the events of the last couple of months, my decision became easier. First, the food. To be honest, both my wife and I found the food to be average. I personally found the pancakes doughy. The service was excellent. Here was my concern. We both noticed that all the male staff were wearing long khakis while all the female staff were wearing shorts. When we inquired we were told that that was company policy. I guess we're a bit confused as to why the different dress codes for the staff members.

Really friendly staff. Great ambiance. But nothing like the BBQ from St. Louis. Chopped brisket in sauce rather flavorless & without texture. Ribs were fine. Slaw good - not over sauced Cafeteria style with indoor & fun outdoor seating. Great for kids

We met friends at Crackers for breakfast on the way to the airport. Though our meals were basic (eggs, sausage, hash browns, toast) they were all tasty and well prepared. The coffee was good too. We will be back!

Don’t let the name fool you, Red, White & Brew is a true restaurant that was designed from the ground up to offer the community a place to eat, drink and relax. The Brew prides itself on providing an exceptional dining experience that is fun and family friendly, creating a place guests can call home.
When in town visiting family, we stopped here for dinner one night. My parents love this place, and I can definitely see why. The menu is very diverse, and everything I tasted here was incredible. From the pizza to the breadsticks to the soups, it was high quality all around. The service was also very good. There was a wait when we arrived of about a half hour, but the wait was well worth it. Overall I would definitely suggest eating here.

Bobby Q offers a culmination of barbeque favorites. Along with extensive barbecue research mixed with culinary expertise, the secret behind Bobby Q's barbeque lies within the slow cooking process over Tennessee hickory wood paired with the perfect blend of spices found in the special dry rub for the meat, as executed by barbeque master, Executive Chef Mark Hittle. This results in succulent hand-pulled pork, smoky sausage links, fork-tender brisket, and ribs that fall right off the bone. The starters will whet your appetite and the desserts will satiate your sweet-tooth cravings, but the barbecue is the show-stopper. Visit the newest location in Mesa for barbecue fare unlike any other.
Tried the smoked brisket last year at the BBQ & Brew event in Chandler, AZ so planned to visit the restaurant this trip to AZ. Saturday night, so made a reservation (which is highly recommended) as the place was super busy. Despite the crowd, friendly...MoreThank you, Cathy! So glad our brisket was enough to bring you in for more! We are glad we did not fail to impress and we hope you'll be back for another great visit soon! Take care, Chef Mark

A hidden gem located blocks away from the Mesa Art Center and all downtown Mesa has to offer.
We were out with friends and decided to try this place. Not disappointed. We had no reservations, on a Saturday evening so had a short wait at the bar. The atmosphere is casual, but it was quite enough to carry on a conversation at the...MoreThank you! Saturday nights can sometimes get crazy~ very happy to read you enjoyed yourself.

We did have to wait for some time to get our table, but it was worth the wait. There were three of us and everyone enjoyed their food. We had an order of the corned beef hash, breakfast tacos, and an omelette with green chili sauce. All of the dishes were yummy. I would definitely go back!!!

On Saturday, Feb. 3, a friend and I stopped by Charleston's after a movie. We arrived just before 5 and were seated in the bar immediately. We had drinks (red wine for the evening was just right). My friend had the trout - grilled and she was very happy with the trout-less so with the mango sauce. I had baked potato and glazed carrots. The carrots are fantastic.
Our server was attentive but not overly protective so we could talk without constant interruption.
As we left, the wait to be seated was long.

Home of the world's largest Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ. A valley favorite for the entire family. Casual, laid back and a ton of fun. Incredibly entertaining for 2 to 102 years old. Bring the entire family to "Experience the Experience!"
A very casual dining environment. Very fresh salad bar. Pizza is good - could use a bit more tomato sauce. Entertainment is amazing! My son loved the music especially when the Star Wars theme song was played. Organist is very talented. Loved the music.

Passion For Food and Serving From the Heart! An unpretentious urban bistro, serving Gilbert since 1935. Wood fired pizza, panini, sandwiches, salads, burgers, entrees, espresso bar, beer+wine. Serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner 7 days a week.
I had been wanting to try this restaurant for years but with us living in North Phoenix, it is hard to get over to Gilbert. We were in the area for an event, and decided to have lunch at the Liberty Market. I lived in Gilbert over 20 years ago and had not been back to the area for about 10 years. I was amazed at how much the area has grown, including the market. It is such a nice restaurant and the people that work there are so nice and friendly. I went into the restaurant while my husband parked and I started to look at a menu. A nice lady came over and offered assistance. She let me know that we could stand in line and order and then they would find us a table or we could just sit at the bar and we would be served there. When my husband came in, we decided to sit at the bar. The people that were working behind the bar, were all very nice. I ordered The Serious Grilled Cheese and I had a side of Rice Pudding. My husband ordered a plain burger with a side of the house made chips. We were both speechless as to how good our meals were. I love grilled cheese and this is probably the best grilled cheese I have ever had. 3 types of cheese, mayo and served on a bread that I only usually able to get in Puerto Rico, I was in heaven. The rice pudding was also delicious. My husband is a huge burger fan and felt the burger was very good as were the chips, which I tasted and agree were very good. I so wish this restaurant were closer to where we live as we would definitely be regulars. We may just have to make the almost hour trip there another day, because the food is so amazing.
