Weekend in Phoenix Part I

Weekend in Phoenix: Part I

This month the Liv Northgate Blog is featuring two posts on one of our favorite cities: Phoenix, AZ! In this post, we are highlighting five classic Phoenix restaurants that we think you should check out in September, including a classic institution from the 1950s and 60s. Each restaurant suggestion is accompanied by a review from Google. We hope that you have a fantastic month here in Gilbert, AZ.


Bobby Q

8501 N 27th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85051

Brandon Stout: “Enjoyed one of the best dining experiences ever tonight. While vacationing in Phoenix, my wife and I chose to eat at Bobby-Q this evening. Food was absolutely great and the service was even better. Huntley was our server and he provided the best service we have ever had. He was very informative and gave spot on suggestions. We were also checked on by the GM/Owner (not sure of exact title), he took time to have a pleasant conversation. Overall an amazing experience.”


La Santisima Gourmet Taco Shop

1919 N 16th St, Phoenix, AZ 85006

Matthew Butters: “This is a great hole in the wall Mexican restaurant, complete with a full bar as well as a self-service salsa bar, with close to a dozen fresh salsas to choose from. The service leaves a little bit to be desired but the food more than makes up for it. Extensive menu. Moderate to expensive. Some of the best guacamole in town. Can't wait to go back!”



2611 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85004

Carle Kahle: “The atmosphere was one of a kind.   Entering through the kitchen made me question my restaurant selection, but the hustle and bustle once inside made me realize that not just travelers eat do the locals.

“The service was impeccable and the grilled scallops and mashed potatoes left me wanting nothing else but to leave room for dessert.  We ended the evening with creme brulee and Irish coffees.”


True Food Kitchen

2502 E Camelback Rd #135, Phoenix, AZ 85016

Cathy Ross: “My absolute favorite restaurant.  Everything is organic, fresh and delicious.  I have tried everything in the menu and I have always been happy with my choice, I could honestly eat here everyday and never get tired of the food.”


Different Pointe of View

11111 N 7th St, Phoenix, AZ 85020

Marilyn Mance: “One of my all time favorite restaurants in the Phoenix area. The food, wines, service, selection, and of course the view are all impeccable! When visiting one must go onto the terrace outside the adjacent lounge. There you will be able to appreciate their one of a kind,  patented fountain. It's uniqueness arrives at the startling way live fire dances atop the water as it's flowing down. All this amidst the glorious back drop of a Arizona sunset. Truly fabulous!”
