The 7 Must-Try Restaurants To Visit In The Tempe-Scottsdale Area

It's no secret that food is most people's favorite thing in life. However, in a busy college town and it's surrounding areas- the numerous food options can be overwhelming. Below is a list of the top food/drink places to take yourself, your friends, or visitors while in the general Tempe/Scottsdale area.

1. Postinos

Anyone in the general PHX area already knows- ]Positino's is a classic. Although it claims it's Italian cuisine, the most popular bruschetta board or $20 bottle of wine and board is a classic for anyone looking for a little more upscale- while still on a budget restaurant.

Locations nearby: 615 S College Ave, Tempe, AZ 85281

4821 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

3939 E Campbell Ave, Phoenix, AZ 8501

2. Culinary Dropout

Slightly more upscale, Culinary Dropout provides a modern and fun interior with classic and out-there dishes that will absolutely please a crowd!

Locations nearby: 149 S Farmer Ave, Tempe, AZ 85281

3. In n Out

Alright, I'll be honest, I'm a vegetarian — but even before that, I thought in and out was overrated... however, if you're not from the West Coast... or you want a cute Instagram might as well give it a shot.

Locations nearby: 920 E Playa Del Norte Dr, Tempe, AZ 85281

1342 S Alma School Rd, Mesa, AZ 85210

4. Sugar Bowl

Less typical, Old Town Scottsdale's own diner/1950's style ice cream parlor. The pink interior provides a cute date... or Instagram spot, while the ice cream and food is sure to be fun for a date with your friends... or anyone else!

Location: 4005 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

5. Flower Child

If you're looking for a more trendy and healthy lunch place — flower child is sure to suit you! Everything on its menu is organic and portion sizes are controlled while still providing amazing food for anyone!

Locations nearby: 5013 N 44th St, Phoenix, AZ 85018

10460 N 90th St, Scottsdale, AZ 85258

6. Dutch Bros Coffee

For anyone not from Arizona, you can't leave without a trip... or five. I have yet to not have a visitor text me four days later saying "I'm really craving dutch." Seriously, it's addicting. If you're not a coffee drinker, feel free to try out a Rebel flavored energy drink iced or blended

Locations nearby: 1037 S Rural Rd, Tempe, AZ 85283

3213 S Mill Ave, Tempe, AZ 85282

7. Blanco Tacos and Tequila
