Two local restaurants are coming together to open a joint restaurant.Hybrid Storytellers/Unsplash. It has been a little quiet on the restaurant front here in Tucson over the better part of the summer. However, with autumn right around the corner and students returning for the fall semester, restaurants are now starting to rev up with new openings. This includes one local favorite that is spreading its wings and opening its first satellite location.
Legendary Burger Chain Opening In Town
An iconic burger chain is opening in town.Gabriel Testoni/Unsplash. Anyone craving a burger in metro Phoenix has no shortage of options. Most of the main burger chains in the United States have at least one restaurant slinging beef patties somewhere in the Valley. However, there is one legendary burger chain with a cult-like following (and even movies named after it) that, until recently, has been strangely absent. Thankfully, that changed just a few years ago, and now a second location is in the works.
Hollywood Based Restaurant Coming Soon To Town
A new Mediterranean Restaurant is opening.Slashio Photography/Unsplash. When it comes to fast and delicious foods there’s just something about authentic street food. Just about every country in the world has a native street food that, in a pinch, satisfies hunger cravings and leaves customers wanting more. One of the benefits of living in metro Phoenix is culinary street offerings spanning the globe can be found in the Valley. And now, a new street food restaurant will be making its way to Phoenix by way of Hollywood.
Andy's Frozen Custard Opening First Kentucky Location in Lexington
Frozen custard might be a staple in the Midwest, but it's making its way East!. Lexington is in for a sweet treat with Andy's Frozen Custard opening next week.

New Smoked Chicken Sandwich Restaurant Coming
A new take on the chicken sandwich is coming.Daniel Hooper/Unsplash. There has been an explosion of chicken restaurants popping up throughout the Valley over the last year or so, with brands flocking into the metro area from all around the country. For chicken sandwich lovers, this has been an exciting time. And yet, most of these fried chicken restaurants focus specifically on the sauces, and not necessarily on flavoring the chicken itself. One chain that looks to be moving into the greater Phoenix area will do exactly that and hopes to bring a new take on the rapidly expanding chicken market.
Daddy's Fried Chicken is Coming Soon
A new fried chicken restaurant is opening up soonEiliv-Sonas Aceron/Unsplash. Few sectors within the fast-food industry have seen the kind of growth and development over the last several years as the world of fried chicken. Specifically the chicken sandwich. Chicken sandwich wards have crept up and sprouted rivalries between individual burger chains, each of which touts their particular chicken sandwiches as the best, the crunchiest, or the spiciest. However, other restaurants are now specifically focusing on just fried chicken, and one of the fastest-growing chains is now looking to rapidly expand throughout metro Phoenix.

If you’re not, you will be soon, as the temperatures around greater Phoenix begin to crank up (with possible record temperatures in the near future). While staying inside in the AC or finding a pool are options, why not avoid the sweltering desert heat by cooling yourself from the inside out? With the help of a new, Los Angeles-based soft-serve ice cream shop, you’ll be able to do just that.
Explosive New Restaurant Coming Soon
Prepare yourself for explosive taste at the new pub.Alexander Kovacs/Unsplash. Every culture has its take on the classic pub. These are usually the kinds of places where guests might go with some friends, either after work or on the weekend, in order to grab a drink, some food, and just enjoy life. It’s a place where visitors can hold conversations without fear of being drowned out by music. You might have your own favorite pub around town, although, in the coming months, there’s a new, unique addition to the category in metro Phoenix.
New Restaurant Coming to 200-Year-Old Fort
A new restaurant is coming to downtown Tucson.Holly Mandarich/Unsplash. There’s something about eating a meal in a historical setting that instantly elevates the entire experience. The ability to enjoy food while sitting in a building built several generations earlier can make it feel like you’re looking through a looking glass into another time. It’s something that simply can’t be replicated by restaurants in new buildings, no matter how many amenities the establishment has to offer. And now, a new restaurant is moving into one of the oldest historical landmarks in downtown Tucson.
Massive New Restaurant, Pickleball Courts Opening in Historic Building
Burgers and pickle ball is coming your way.Eiliv-Sonas Aceron/Unsplash. The Corbett block in downtown Tucson has been targeted for a thorough renovation for some time now. Plans for a complete renovation were released in early 2020, with massive plans for the Corbett Building (located at 210 East 7th Street) to be gutted, updated, and set up for new businesses. However, many of the plans were put on hold when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and shut down Tucson a few months later. Now, renovations are back on track and the 2.5 acre Corbett Block is going to see some sizable updates in the coming months.
Popular Coffee Shop Opening Third Location in Town.

Sometimes there’s just not enough time to stop into a local coffee shop, wait at the counter, and purchase a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Whether in a rush to make work on time, heading out to a children’s sporting event, or the mind is dragging and needs a little caffeinated pick-me-up, grabbing a quick cup of joe is a must.
