Phoenix is a sprawling metropolis and home to favorite professional sports teams, MBL’s Diamondbacks and NBA’s Suns as well as minor league baseball and roller derby. Students, families, snow-birds and retirees populate Phoenix and surrounding areas like Glendale and swanky resort town, Scottsdale.

Phoenix is always a busy place, but during the last week of January and first weekend in February, 2015, the buzz is greater with the SuperBowl and PGA Phoenix Open in town.

If you’re visiting Phoenix for the big game, golf tournament or if you live here, Phoenix offers an array of excellent dining adventures. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite restaurants in Phoenix that you’ll want to try when you’re in town. Not only are these some of the highest rated restaurants in their categories, but they’re also customers of ours.

Good news: Businesses that use Easy Ice serve clean, fresh, safe ice. We professionally deep clean the ice machines twice per year as well as maintain and service the ice machines we install. Clean ice is just as important as safe food and can cause the same food bourn illnesses.

This list will help you find the breakfast, lunch or dinner you’re craving! In alphabetical order:
