Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill introduced a taste of Colorado to the Carolinas when it first opened its doors in Charlotte, North Carolina in December of 2000. The restaurant is the creative concept of owner and restaurateur, Dennis Thompson, who regularly travels out west. He fell in love with the feel of the area as well as the food. Drawing from those experiences, he developed Firebirds.

The exposed kitchen showcases a flurry of activity, while smoky aromas from the hardwood flames infuse the restaurant. “Grilling over the open flame gives all of our food a tremendous flavor,” says Thompson. “Our blend of bold seasonings, spices and sauces is designed to create an innovative style of American cuisine that makes each dish flavorful from beginning to end,” he adds. Guests can expect well seasoned steaks, ice cold martinis and much more. Additional favorites include herb roasted prime rib, fresh seafood, hearty pasta, awesome burgers and oversized salads.

Big Earl’s Greasy Eats

“Sometimes you have to consider the ‘fun factor’ when deciding where to eat. Big Earl’s is just the place if you want decent basic grub in surroundings that are so entertaining, so unabashedly kitschy, that it is impossible not to love it and want to go back. It’s located in a 1950s gas station…transformed into a retro burger joint in March 2006.

“…those willing to throw caution to the wind and live in a simpler time – when carbs weren’t evil and grease meant flavor, not fat – will get a big kick out of Big Earl’s.”

The Grind

“The Grind, headed up by chef Matt McLinn (his Valley credentials include Christopher’s Fermier, and his own Méthode Bistro and BLT Steak), serves up a compact menu of burgers and other dishes cooked in unique coal-fired ovens. From the mouthwatering sweet and spicy burger, topper with combination of candied jalapenos and fried ratatouille, pungent roasted garlic aioli, and a heap of fresh watercress, to a peppercorn-crusted version, there’s plenty to satisfy carnivores, although there are a few meat-free treats as well, including a hefty portobello burger, salads, roasted vegetables, and sweet potato fritters. Snug booths, sexy lighting, and a long, gleaming bar make it an inviting watering hole.” – Phoenix New Times

Coal-fired ovens have been used in Europe for hundreds of years. While, it’s a relatively new concept in the United States, it’s been the preferred technology for decades in countries like Spain, France, England and Italy.

The Grind is the first restaurant in the United States to utilize custom coal-fired ovens that cook at over 1,000 degrees. The ovens come with two adjustable broiler racks that allow Chef McLinn to cook a wide variety of meats and vegetables in the oven simultaneously; making this a versatile piece of equipment, capable of very high production.

Traditional gas ovens cook at 550 degrees, wood ovens around 650 degrees. Only coal can get an oven this hot. Most items cook in approximately four minutes and the high heat allows Chef McLinn to create a flavorful crust while sealing in the juicy tenderness in all of our products. The smoke imparts flavor and the end result is the most tender, juicy piece of meat, you’ll ever taste!

Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery

Also in Ahwatukee, North Phoenix & North Scottsdale

Our obsession with beer is legendary, yet our passion for great food runs just as deep. From our commitment to fresh ingredients to the breads and buns we bake ourselves to our homemade desserts, every inspired recipe reflects the artistry and love that makes the Rock Bottom experience unlike any other.

“This brew pub doesn’t have many weak links. The kitchen takes its food mission seriously. The menu has a surprising scope and variety, everything from asiago dip and wings to jambalaya, enchiladas, and Reuben sandwiches. Still, the brewery is its real raison detre. The suds have true microbrew energy” the Desert Trail Pale Ale stands out, as does the Roadrunner Brown with its chocolaty aroma.” – Phoenix New Times

Sabor Cubano Buffet

“Buffet restaurants are usually nothing to get excited about. What kind of restaurant, then, can be an exception to the rule — a buffet worth a special trip? Sabor Cubano, a Cuban buffet restaurant, exceeds the limitations of buffets by doing three things right: offering an affordable venue for a national cuisine that is underrepresented in Phoenix, maintaining a generally high level of food quality and freshness, and augmenting the buffet with a limited selection of a la carte items prepared to order.

“Each day’s buffet offerings at Sabor Cubano represent the essential flavors and ingredients of Cuban food. The food is not spicy, but blends Spanish, African, and Caribbean tastes into a flavorful amalgam unique to the island. Black beans, rice, yuca root, plantains, beef, chicken, pork, and fish are among the essential ingredients, and the common flavorings are garlic, onion, bay leaf, and cumin.”
