The Greater Phoenix area is full of restaurants, cafés, bakeries and even coffee shops that the locals – and the national media – rave about. Our Southwestern and Mexican restaurants are supremely authentic, our chefs are known around the world, and the views from some of the tables in town are unparalleled.

At some Phoenix restaurants, great food is paired with amazing mountain views.

  • Dine at El Chorro Lodge at the base of Camelback Mountain and you’ll also get a piece of Phoenix history. It started out as a girls’ school in the 1930s, then became a restaurant in the 1950s, and has been loved for their ambience – and their sticky buns – ever since.
  • Lon’s at the Hermosa Inn is situated between Camelback Mountain and the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, and the patio is complete with fireplaces, soft lights and fountains.

Phoenix also hosts many James Beard favorites for their different culinary skills.

  • Vincent Guerithault of Vincent on Camelback is known for his French techniques combined with Southwestern flavors.
  • Beau MacMillan (also known for his Food Network fame) heads up Elements at Sanctuary Resort, arguably the most picturesque restaurant with culinary skills to match.
  • You’d be missing out if you didn’t try Chris Bianco’s famed Pizzeria Bianco, hailed by many culinary publications as the best pizza in America.

For authentic Mexican and Southwestern dishes, you don’t have to look far to find anything from classic regional dishes to gourmet masterpieces.

  • Kai is the only Five Diamond Native American restaurant in the world, and the views of South Mountain and the city are unbeatable.
  • Barrio Café is known for Chef Silvana Esparza’s modern, top-notch preparations of traditional Mexican dishes – and margaritas.
  • Looking for traditional, unpretentious Mexican food? The locals will tell you Los Dos Molinos is one of the best-kept “secrets” around.
