The Food Network has been giving some serious love to Phoenix lately — so we decided to
brag roundup all the Greater Phoenix restaurants that have been featured.
The Parlor Pizzeria (1916 East Camelback Road, Phoenix) is the most recent 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.
The Coffee Shop at Agritopia in Gilbert (3000 E. Ray Road) also won on an episode of Cupcake Wars!
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:
Roberto’s Mexican Food (39510 N. Daisy Mountain Road, Suite #170, Anthem)
Los Taquitos Grill (4747 E. Elliot Road and 7000 N. 16th Street, Phoenix) Guy loved the tacos, we’re partial to the carnitas burrito.
Chino Bandido (15414 N. 19th Avenue, Suite K, Phoenix) Make sure when you go to tell them it’s your first time and sample all the flavors!
