Handlebar J

Handlebar J adorns multiple hats (pun intended). From a family dining restaurant with a vast menu to a large bar with live western music and dancing, this is a Scottsdale favorite. Cowboy hats by the hundreds dangle from the ceiling. Thick succulent steaks, prime rib, chicken, and ribs, make up most of the menu. This is definitely a meat and potatoes place - wranglers of all ages have been coming here since 1975. And if you happen to visit the venue between Wednesday and Sunday, you will be treated to an exquisite performance by Arizona's favorite country music band, The Herndon Brothers.

Citizen Public House

It offers a stellar menu of such delights as Pan Seared Scallops, Pork Belly Pastrami, Deep Sea Red Crab Cakes among others, all to be enjoyed over sips of co*cktail, wines and beer. The MidWest Manhattan co*cktail is worth mentioning for its unique taste and blend of ingredients. Enjoy the happy hours between 3p to 6p daily. The classy upholstery and decor also add to the dining experience. The intimate patio as well as the private dining area are good places to have a celebratory dinner with friends.

This place is always packed with hungry locals craving some old-fashioned soul food, complete with all the trimmings of collard greens to mashed potatoes. It has even been visited by celebrities like Shaquille O'Neal, Amare Stoudemire and many more. The boisterous and unpretentious setting is made up of several small rooms still laid out as part of the original house, all packed with tables full of diners. The waffles are light and fluffy, and the chicken is fried to perfection! After your main plate is cleared away and if you still have room, be sure to try the red velvet cake along with some sweet tea.
