Most Popular Restaurants in Tempe

Located just 10 minutes east of downtown Phoenix, Tempe exudes its own personality and the youthful spirit of a college town. Home to Arizona State University, the largest public university in the United States, Tempe has a vibrant downtown that’s active day and night. You’ll find locally-owned eateries and microbreweries, annual festivals, arts and cultural events. And plenty of opportunities to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year on a bike, hiking trail or stand-up paddleboard.

Loved this place! They are only open for breakfast/brunch-and it seems there is always a wait on the weekends. Mimosas, Bloody Marys and coffee are available while you wait along with a ping pong table. The tacos seem to be a favorite among the college crew- but my new craving is their sweet potato pancake! So good - but I don’t know I could eat a whole stack since they are so sweet. I would recommend getting one on the side. They have a variety of unique pancakes and some are seasonal. Yum! Can’t wait to go back. The eggs, omelets and breakfast burritos are yummy as well.

RigaTony's Authentic Italian

Our restaurant moved from Chandler to Tempe on April 1st 2010. We have made literally thousands of friends in the last 16 years and it was a difficult decision to move even five miles down the road, but our lease had ended and it seemed like a perfect time to find a location that would make dining at RigaTony's easier and more enjoyable. We now have virtually unlimited parking (I hear a big hooray out there), patio dining, a separate take-out area, and a little more elbow room in our dining room. We serve Authentic Italian Food and have specials every week created by our amazing Chef Hutson. Go to our website for to view our menu and specials. Hope to see you soon! -Mike Lopercio, Owner & Chief Bottle Washer.

Large selection on the menu, good bar, reasonable pricing, terrific interior appointments, extra friendly wait staff, ample parking, ——- but be advised this restaurant is a very popular dining spot so plan on waiting twenty minutes for a table for dinner, be it Saturday or even Thursday. It is worth the wait though.

First visit to this restaurant and what a treat! Fresh pasta made daily served by my new favorite server Marcie! She made the visit over the top with her quick wit and sense of humor that was spot on for our group. Highly recommend making a reservation as it is a hot spot. Great food, atmosphere and service - will become an annual stop on our spring training trip!!

Cornish Pasty Co

Reviewed By California_Wine - Central Coast California

The red wine gravy is awesome. I prefer a pasty that is paired with red wine gravy. The atmosphere is excellent for a date, socializing with friends, or going it alone. They also offer take-away. They have outdoor seating too if you like that. Also need to add that we tried a Chicken Tikka salad and it was really good. Casual to relaxed dining. Alcohol and beer offered here. Has a pub atmosphere. Dinner for two is around $30-40, not including tip and depending on how much you drink.

The Chuckbox

Reviewed By AJVaughnDOTcom - Phoenix Arizona

I've been here to many times to count over the last 30 years and it's always fantastic. Nothings better than a flame grilled burger and they do it so well. The Tiajuna Torpedo is a favorite. You have to love Green Chilis. Toss on a bunch of hot Jalapenos and some Mayo and I'm in Heaven. The Fried Zucchini is the best of the fried sides.
Bring an appetite and enjoy!

We tried this based on Trip advisor reviews, and reviewers were right...pizza here was fantastic! We sat outside by the fireplace, and felt like we had our own private seating area (group of 6). Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. We tried the fancy dancy mushroom pizza and cheese with meatball. Both were so good! Fun atmosphere, and loved the big band music.

I have not been here for years until March 12th. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to return. The food was excellent and our waiter gets high marks for courtesy and a terrific personality and smile. Best of all, the quiche, roast beef, and salad were exemplary. Above all, you cannot leave without sampling the raspberry tea. Dining outside on a 80 degree day has advantages as well.

Four Peaks Restaurant

The original Four Peaks in Tempe is the Mother Ship to all things Four Peaks! Daily Specials, Single Tank Series, and seasonals make each visit unique! Take a tour of the brewery and watch one of us get way too excited about water, yeast, malt, and hops!

Reviewed By Andreas S

It's a place I would recommend everyone to visit when they're in Phoenix. The waiters where very nice, prompt, and attentive; the selection of beer is quite fantastic, as well as the food. I would definitely recommend buying a flight of beer, since they sell every beer on the menu desperately, which is a must on the way out :)

This place has a great atmosphere with good music and a perfect location. The bruschetta was a great appetizer choice and it easily fed 4 adults. It was a good compliment to our wine. Happy to report that there are vegetarian options and vegan options on this menu. Will come back and try dinner next time.

At In-N-Out Burger, quality is everything. Stop by to enjoy our menu of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries and shakes. In-N-Out makes fast food the old fashioned way.

Reviewed By J C - Goldendale, Washington

This was my first time at an In-N-Out Burger. The burgers and fries were delicious! They were very busy (the place was packed!), but we only waited a few minutes. It tasted better and was cheaper than McDonalds.
