Satisfy your appetite

You live in the Southwest, so you most likely would like to find a restaurant serving unbelievable Southwestern cuisine. Check out Taqueria el Tapatio. This joint will change your perspective of cheese on a taco. Just so you know, Taqueria el Tapatio accepts cash only. They do serve breakfast including the chorizo and egg burrito, giving you a messy piece of goodness. You can enjoy this wonderfulness any time of day.

Cuff offers new American cuisine in downtown filled with old charm influence. Housed in the Humphrey-Davidson Building built in 1895, Cuff has a great atmosphere with original architecture and a secluded back patio. Chef Tom Harvey makes a posole with smoked pork pot stickers, hominy, chipotle broth, cotija cheese. The fried shrimp po'boy is a great lunch option.

After antique shopping, you should stop by the small, but welcoming, A Touch of European Café, for a bite to eat. They have some of the area's best soups, fresh pierogies, homemade kielbasa, and more. If you feel adventuresome, try the pickle soup. The menu also includes a variety of salads, deli sandwiches, and homemade desserts to keep you coming back for more.

You will not have any trouble finding great shopping destinations in Glendale. USA Today and Sunset Magazine recently named Downtown Glendale as one of the country’s best places to shop. Downtown Glendale is comprised of two neighborhoods – Catlin Court and Olde Town.

In addition to downtown, Arrowhead Towne Center is one of the largest malls in the region. Located off the Loop 101 freeway, the mall features 170 shops and restaurants, a movie theater, and beautiful water fountains.

Westgate Entertainment District has shops and boutiques set in a lively outdoor setting. Enjoy interactive shopping, happening restaurants, and a large variety of outlet value shopping. You are also close to the sports action with Arizona Coyotes and Arizona Cardinals on both sides of this district.
