Darbi's Cafe

Reviewed By NewYorkTraveller2011 - New York City, New York

Terrific breakfast, wonderful people, efficient service and well located for a fuel up breakfast before skiing at Sunrise Park. My buddy, who claims not to be a breakfast guy before skiing, gladly wolfed down the veg breakfast burrito and was very happy - was selling it as a stop before ski breakfast for the next trip with his family before we even came back from skiing.

Had breakfast here and man it didn't disappoint. But you better be hungry when you get there and I guarantee you want be when you leave. Biscuits as big as softball and delicious. Pancakes as big as a wheel on a Mini Cooper and goood. Eggs cook the way you want, you just need to go and enjoy. Staff was very friendly and informative.

We made it a point to stop here several times during our week in Pinetop. Fresh bread, still warm, it doesn't get any better than this.
Pastries too! Huge selection to pick from. We even stopped by on our way out of town to get a couple more loafs of bread.

Red Devil Pizza

Reviewed By OldNorCalGuy - Rancho Murieta

We decided to spend Christmas in Pinetop and after reading TA reviews we thought Red Devil Pizza might be a good choice for our first dinner...we were right.
We arrived right at the peak of dinner rush hour and they were hopping, but we only had to wait a couple of minutes for them to set us up with a table for six. Our server immediately greeted us and took our drink orders. When she returned we ordered three appetizers, a couple of salads and a pizza. They turned around the apps quickly and in a reasonable amount of time delivered the pizza and salads. We enjoyed the apps and the salads, but the pizza was only solid, not great...that's the reason I did not give them a 5 rating. I will tell you this though, the service was absolutely a 5. We had four different people come by our table and check on us. Every employee we encountered was positive and polite. Our experience will definitely bring us back on our next visit to the area.

We stopped in after eating at Grumpy Jacks for a treat. I love the yogert with toppings. We all had something different and sat outside in the night air at the table and enjoyed the dessert and lights. Great place

Great little coffee shop. Just about any drink you want and the price point is what would be expected. Brewed coffee has great taste and the aroma of the shop adds to the experience.

Los Corrales

Reviewed By rogerxArizona - Arizona

The food was good and friendly service. They even brought a complimentary watermelon tequila shot. Margaritas very good! It was snowing outside and the restaurant was still busy. The prices are very reasonable. Portions are also large. So, its not El Charro but still very good Mexican food with a HUGE menu

We go there to order their loaf of Cranberry/Orange bread. It's delicious! We're uncomfortable eating there because we're modest and plain. The only time I felt comfortable was when I wore my comfy Birkenstocks.....and nobody knew I was armed.
If you enjoy a seemingly pretentious clientele....this is you place.

Salt Restaurant and Wine Bar

Reviewed By smagto - Phoenix, Arizona

We went to Salt for our anniversary and subsequently three weeks later for my birthday...both time were excellent. We had the filet and it was prepared just the way we asked. Tuesday nights are a bargain for wine lovers...all bottles priced at $40.00 or less are half price.

Reviewed By Arizona2AHR - Glendale, Arizona

We had blackened, mesquite-cooked prime rib and is was really good. Never had prime rib like that before. If you try it you may really like it. The staff was very friendly and our service was good. Local people recommended this restaurant and we always...MoreThank you for such a nice review! We are so happy to hear that you had a good time, we hope to see you again soon!!
