The AZGA golf crowd knows not many folks pick Tuesday as their favorite day of the week. After all, it’s sandwiched between the “ugh, it’s Monday” and “yes, it’s hump day.” Now, the team at SunRidge Canyon Golf Club has people circling it in red on the calendar so they won’t miss “Tasty Tuesdays”.
Brats and hot dogs don’t get a lot of respect these days, and for obvious reasons (like what they’re made from). But I’m telling you flat out, make the turn at the Arizona Biltmore or McCormick Ranch and that tantalizing waft of succulent sausages grilling in the air will lure you in every time. Plus, they’ve got great buns and condiments to back it up!
When it comes to big, bold burgers, I challenge you to find an equal to Grayhawk’s half-pound, Grade A-prime Barn Burger served up at Phil’s Grill, perhaps the best 19th hole in the Southwest. OK, so Lefty is a vegetarian these days. Hey, he can still eat that haystack of thinly sliced French Fries that accompany this all-American feast.
Phil’s Grill at Grayhawk Golf Club boasts an impressive collection of golf memorabilia lining the walls and a menu to make you drool. Named after legend Phil Mickelson, this clubhouse has palette-pleasers like baby back pork ribs smothered in prickly pear barbecue sauce and Southwestern chicken and pasta. The extensive wine list, choice of draft beers and selection of tequilas also makes this the perfect spot for happy hour, or as it’s known at Phil’s Grill, the emergency round.
If you’re looking for authentic Mexican cuisine during your Tucson golf trip, you’ll find it at Café Poca Cosa. Located in downtown Tucson, this casual, cozy bistro is lively and unique.

It might seem an odd combination, but not for Don & Charlie’s, an iconic Scottsdale restaurant and one of our favorite hangs. Don Carson is a Chicago boy, so he is no stranger to good food. After moving to Scottsdale, he opened Don & Charlie’s in 1981 with the mission to open a restaurant that provided a great atmosphere, with great food and great hospitality. Mission accomplished!
