Especially for a concert venue, where one expects to shell out a lot of dough for drinks, these are cheap. $4 rum and diet? Can't go wrong with that. The heavy pours make any lush satisfied.
This place is medium and somewhat intimate, and your feet will stick to the floor, but you cannot beat the prices. They're getting some great acts lately! I have recently been for 10 years and Sevendust and while my ears rang (expected) the energy at this venue is like no other. I love that there are no seats, too. I want to stand and dance, anyway.
And choose to avoid that creeper that is trying to say something weird to me.
Yeah, weirdo. I'm going to go over... here... now.
With good food, and many options, this place pretty much has something for everybody. I am gluten-free, and they actually were out of GF dough this time around. The manager came to my table and apologized to me profusely, saying they were waiting for the order all day.
He went over all the options with me, and assured me he would also notify the kitchen to make sure there was no cross contamination. BIG SCORE IN MY BOOK.
My friend had ordered a gluten pizza, but his girlfriend is gluten-free and was on her way. While waiting, the GF pizza dough order came in and the manager came back to let us know. My friend swapped the pizza, but they had already made the original gluten pizza. They gave us the gluten pizza anyway (comped, much to the joy of the two gluten eaters of the party) and brought over the GF pizza!
Stellar service and amazing options for all! Enjoy a cider for me! ;)
As a newly gluten-free vegan, I really appreciate the amount of gluten-free options this ALL VEGAN coffee shop/ice cream shop has!
On Sundays, their brunch is spectacular with plenty of options for those of us that are gluten-free! I had the Wing Ding Dang which was a twist of Green's spectacular (somehow gluten-free!) chick'n wings, served with a tofu scramble and hash papas. The hash papas could definitely be improved upon, because they're soggy, but everything else made up for it.
The elotes de la calle is a dish of hominy served in some spicy lemon cream sauce. TO DIE FOR. Seriously, I could eat this all day, every day. I drooled little, just typing about it.
Go in for dessert, breakfast, what have you. If you're GF, there is always something. Enjoy!
I was pretty excited to come here. I have been recently diagnosed with celiac disease. They have gluten-free health food, and a LOT of it is vegan. This restaurant specializes in working with food allergies but apparently does not specialize in "flavor". I love healthy food. Chakra 4 is one of my favorite restaurants, and I love healthy, fresh veggies in their raw form! But they have food that is yummy.
If I wanted rabbit food with balsamic vinegar, well... I could do that! I got the Kitchen Sink salad (had greens, carrots, chickpeas, black beans, jicama, broccoli, mango, and candied walnuts that weren't candied.) that sounded good, but was okay. The roasted butternut squash appetizer quite honestly was the most boring thing I've ever eaten.
I sampled my fiancé's food and it mostly tasted like allspice and not much else (he got the quinoa salad, wild rice, and southwestern soup). All I could smell was allspice - I think. It was something pungent.
Truly disappointed. I probably won't prioritize going back there, but I'm willing to give it another shot.
I didn't hate it, it was okay. If you have a lot of time to piss away, go ahead and check this out. The service is super slow. There was no one to greet my fiancé and myself when we walked in. When someone did come out, she greeted the first party and invited them to sit where they liked, so we followed suit. Then she brought out water about 10-15 minutes or so later. The water was refreshing! They have freshly sliced oranges in it! Then about 10 minutes after that we ordered. We shared the dumplings, I had the sweet and sour divine, and he had the Garlic sensation. The lentil soup they serve with the meal was yummy! And the dumplings can satisfy in insatiable appetite for all things dumpling. They serve Stash jasmine green tea, which I loved. The soy chicken could be tastier but the dish was pretty good, nonetheless. But holy hell, they do not know what a sense of urgency is! We had to leave and said, "we're running late, can you go ahead and run our bill?" Note, we has already finished eating and had not even been visited for a check. She went off, did a couple of other things, adjusted a menu on her way to the register, and finally checked us out. If you go, do not expect great service. Expect alright food, aloofness and a strange ambiance.
This is hands down one of the top places to eat in Phoenix. Even the once expected-to-be drivel that is tofu is delicious and crispy, as far as texture and melding with the sauces. The only thing I developed any remote disdain for was the white ginger fish, because it lacked even a memory of flavor. Everything else on the menu will deck you with spice and flavor that is worthy of the most loved Sultan, the highest regarded President, the most pure of vegetarian monks, the - well, you get the point. I love this restaurant, and you cannot go wrong - especially if you love spice.
