A Place at the Table

Savor Arizona's Food Scene

Dine with us in Arizona, where the food might be fancy, but the company is always down-to-earth.

Where else could a humble hot dog stand become a chain of restaurants that wins a James Beard Award for its Sonoran hot dog?

Much like El Guero Canelo and its legendary dog, dining experiences throughout the state put customer comfort and palate first. Whether that takes the form of a farm-to-table tasting menu on a perfect patio, a wine country excursion through rolling hills, or a Route 66 diner crawl, Arizona's cuisine scene invites guests to learn the story behind the food. Pull up a chair!
