Phoenix Municipal Stadium is perfectly situated at the crossroads of Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe, which means you won't have to travel far to find a great meal.
Our top honor goes to Gertrude's, which is located just north of the stadium at the Desert Botanical Garden. The lovely setting - the outdoor patio overlooks the main garden courtyard - is complemented by a winning menu of modern American entrees, carefully constructed using vegetables and herbs grown on-site in the kitchen garden. If you can, reserve a table for the Sunday Brunch, which is one of the best in town.
If you don't have time for a leisurely meal, stop by Sami's Gyros, a casual eatery dishing out tasty Mediterranean staples like falafels and gyros. It's also a great spot to find Chicago dogs.
Sports fanatics will want to head just west of the stadium to grab a booth or bar stool at Draw 10 Bar & Grill, a lively, longtime sports bar and restaurant where you'll find juicy specialty burgers, sandwiches, and house favorites like the green chile mac 'n cheese.
For something a little more urbane, head south to neighboring Tempe, where wood-fired pizzas and fine wine are served at the sophisticated La Bocca Urban Pizzeria and Wine.
