The Food Network has been giving some serious love to Phoenix— so we decided to
brag roundup all the Greater Phoenix restaurants that have been featured.
Parlor Pizzeria is a recipient of some Food Network love being named as the best pizza in Arizona on the “50 States, 50 Pizzas” list. The particular pie named is the Salsiccia, that comes loaded with mozzarella, cheddar, grilled radicchio and locally sourced spicy pork sausage.

This local bakery was crowned a winner on the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.
Another recipient on an episode of Cupcake Wars, the Coffee Shop offers flavors that change daily.
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives Features
Guy Fieri apparently loves Phoenix with over a dozen Phoenix eateries being featured on his Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives show on the Food Network. The following restaurants have received a visit from Mr. Fieri:

Guy loved the tacos, but we’re partial to the carnitas burrito.
Make sure when you go to tell them it’s your first time and sample all the flavors.
Worth the wait. Guy loves The Chop & Chick and the waffles. (He also chose Matt’s The Chop & Chick on The Best Thing I Ever Ate).
