Local Toasted Sub Chain Opens New Location
When the munchies hit, you need a spot that knows how to deliver. Not every restaurant is going to satisfy those sudden cravings. If you’re a lover of toasted subs overflowing with melted cheese, salted meats, and all the toppings you could ever want, there’s a local establishment that is calling your name. Established in greater Phoenix, the toasted sub-destination has opened a new restaurant, making it even easier to kick back, relax, and chow down.
Locally Owned Fried Chicken Restaurant Now Open
If you are a lover of fried chicken and chicken sandwiches, the last year or so has probably been heaven for you around metro Phoenix. There have been countless chicken restaurants opening up around the area, some locally bred, but many flying in from outside the state. It’s a long way off from when it was difficult to track down chicken wings back during the pandemic. Now, a local chicken shop that opened just a year ago has already connected with the community and has opened a second location, spreading even more fried chicken goodness to hungry patrons.
Local Taco Chain Opening 2 New Restaurants
When you have a good thing going, it’s important to maintain momentum. That is why so many restaurants jump on expansion quickly because they don’t want to miss out on the buzz surrounding a new establishment. In the restaurant industry (as is the case with many others), if you don’t capitalize on success there will be another restaurant to move in and do it. Metro Phoenix is an excellent proving ground for all kinds of foods, but specifically Mexican. Local eaters are picky and understand quality Mexican food, perhaps more so than most regions in the country. For one local restaurant that has proven itself to the local community, it has plans on opening not one, but two new destinations in the coming months.

Two New Restaurants and Bars Coming Soon
If you are out and about in Tempe and are tired of the current restaurant and bar lineup, you never have to wait too long, as new establishments sprout every few months.

So, if you’re looking for something new, just hold tight. Change is right around the corner.

Local Taco Chain Opens New Location
There are days when you want to sit down and be pampered with your meal, and there are other days when you just want to wrap your hands around simple, yet delicious, finger food. There’s comfort in such food. You can enjoy it by yourself after a long day at work, or you can slip away from your responsibilities for a few minutes and devour a favorite menu item on your lunch break. If you’re a lover of food that doesn’t try to over-sell itself or overcomplicate what should be easy, you’re in good company, as a local chain has officially opened a new location in metro Phoenix.
Popular Restaurant Forced to Close Due To Landlord Rent Surge
The butting of heads between tenants and landlords is nothing new. It’s an issue about as old as renting out properties. However, while this issue typically bubbles up when it comes to residential locations, there has been a surge in commercial real estate of late. Landlords are seeking to increase rent to the point many current tenants are unable to make payments to stay profitable. Some business types can absorb the increase, but others, specifically those in the hospitality business, can’t simply accept a surge in potentially thousands of dollars, as any kind of increase would be forced onto customers. For one Phoenix-area restaurant, the issue came to a head, resulting in the closure of a business less than a month after it opened.
Popular Local Restaurant Opening Second Location
There’s nothing easy about opening a restaurant. It takes hard work, determination, and maybe more luck than both combined. There are so many variables at work with the creation of such a business it is nearly impossible to forecast the outcome. Restaurants with the best locations and incredible food have run into brick walls. All an owner can do is hope they do everything right and that it is reflected by the outside world. One local businesswoman, who opened a restaurant in greater Phoenix a decade ago, has managed to not only thrive in her community, but she is now poised to open a second, spinoff restaurant.
Popular Cheeseburger Restaurant Opens New Location
Few food and drink combinations go together like cheeseburgers and beers. There’s just something about the cold, frosty nature of a beer washing down the juicy, salty taste of cheese and grilled beef. It makes for a classic grill-out combination and has long proven to be a popular menu option at restaurants around the world. For one local chain, it just made too much sense to not only specialize in the two together but to even name the business after the combo. The simple, direct naming of the restaurant, as well as the quality of the food, has resulted in the chain opening a new location in metro Phoenix.
Mac's Raw Bar & Market Feels Good in All the Right Ways
Going to Mac’s Raw Bar & Market feels good, like a comfy pair of jeans or your favorite boots that fit just right. An intangible feeling that keeps us going back every week. I like to sit at the bar, with the oversized, cushy leather barstools that beg you to stay a spell. All the bartenders are well-versed in the menu items and can make you an ice-cold Martini just as you like it, and my wife likes them dirty with three olives. The fresh, abundant selection of seafood makes it an easy choice when heading to Marietta Square.
The Best Tucson Dive Restaurant Has The Best Soup Bread Bowl
From the outside, it wasn’t much to look at. Dark, secluded. Like the shy kid in class, it faded into the background, not wanting to draw too much attention to itself. But as dusk turned dark and the streetlamps flicked on, Bison Witches cast its spell and drew me in.
Local Restaurant, Owned By James Beard Award Winner, is Closing
The more things change, the more things stay the same. That, for some local Tucson food lovers, maybe the way of viewing the announced closure of a popular restaurant in the heart of the city. The restaurant will change, evolve, and take on a new identity, but in some ways, things will stay the same, as the new location’s ownership will remain the same. Retooling and rebranding a restaurant can sometimes prove necessary (as well as ideal if there are tax incentives attached to it). Regardless, the locally-owned destination will officially call it quits in just a few short days.
22 Years of Meat Pies and Lifelong Mates at Australian Bakery
Australian Bakery Cafe is celebrating twenty-two years on Marietta Square, and their story is almost unbelievable: almost. Neville Steel and Mark Allen were born in the same hospital three weeks apart in the outback town of Boort.
Quality Leather Products at Go Forth Goods
I met the owner of Go Forth Goods, Nathan Martin, at a local coffee shop, where he opened the conversation by talking about his struggles in high school with testing and comprehension. To be open and honest was refreshing in a societal time where some people try to portray constant success. I was very empathetic to his plight, as I also had a hard time with those aspects of school, and I created an instant connection. Martin told me he was in a rock band in school and barely graduated, but has always had a creative side that evolved into a thriving leather products company.
Local Brewery Offering Free Beer For A Year
Having a buddy buy you a beer is always nice. The cold glass of suds is refreshing (especially in this heat), and it is a great way to just kick back and enjoy time with your friends. That complimentary beer makes it even sweeter. It is as if the beer knows it’s free, and enhances its flavor profile just for you. Well, what if you could win not just a single free beer, but free beer for an entire year? One local brewing company is preparing to do exactly that.
Art & Science of Good Kitchen+Market
Walking into Good Kitchen feels like visiting furniture, soft earth-tone cushions that adorn the three main dining areas, and succulent plants that add to the zen-like atmosphere. The vibrant, flavorful food they serve also provides a significant part of their color palette. The restaurant is a 1900s cottage house with a vast, recently expanded deck out front that feels like sitting in your neighbor’s backyard, complete with a huge tree that is a friend in the summer by offering much-needed shade.
Summertime Eats, BBQ and Burgers
Summer in the South is relentless, and who doesn’t love a three-napkin-worthy, juicy cheeseburger. or a flavor-packed pulled pork BBQ sammie on a warm, sunny afternoon while sitting in the air conditioning, of course? I know some places you need to check out and get yours before it gets hotter’n blue blazes, as my Mother used to say, and sometimes still does.
Locally-Owned Cookie Shop Opening 4 New Locations
Whether you’re 8 or 80, there’s just something about a freshly baked cookie. We all have our favorites. Whether you’re a sugar cookie lover, like the richness of a peanut butter cookie, or you go with the classic chocolate chip, there’s something for everyone. For many, it is that direct connection with being a kid that keeps the love of cookies alive. From snatching a sugary treat when mom wasn’t looking, or when visiting the grandparent’s house and they made a fresh batch just for you. Whatever your connection, it is hard to beat that perfectly crafted cookie. It is why one local bakery is not only proving incredibly popular but is expanding outward in metro Phoenix.
