More of a place to order to go, but that is in no way a knock on their BBQ. World class.

From Our Editors

Mark Smith and Gary Clark wouldn’t be where they are today without a 50-year-old barbecue recipe. When the two childhood friends started a catering service in college to cover their living expenses, they soon became renowned for their barbecue, made with a Tennessee-style recipe passed down through several generations. Bolstered by demand, they bought a truck and a portable barbecue pit—but soon traded these for a brick-and-mortar location, a rustic storefront on East Van Buren Street. More than 25 years later, the pair are still serving smoked meats at Honey Bear’s BBQ, boosting their output with a second location on North Central Avenue and a separate catering center.

Their recipe has only improved with age, earning them accolades such as the Phoenix’s Best BBQ Sauce 2010 Award from the Phoenix New Times. Inside the Honey Bear BBQ kitchens, chefs brush this signature Tennessee sauce onto pulled pork, shredded chicken, and beef brisket, which they serve by the pound, pile onto sandwiches, or stuff into face-level catapults. They complement the mesquite flavors with traditional Southern sides such as potato salad, cowbro beans, collard greens, and tater tots. For faraway fans, they also bottle and ship their signature sauce around the country.

Phoenix Restaurant Guide

As the capital city of Arizona, Phoenix offers a variety of restaurants to serve the needs of a diverse population. While some might assume that Phoenix restaurants are dominated by Mexican food, sushi, French food and other ethnic cuisines are also immensely popular. Casual dollar-taco stands easily mix with upscale French bistros in this city.

For a relaxing bottle of wine and the ability to experience a carefully crafted meal, try one of Phoenix's many French restaurants. Sophie's French Bistro offers an extensive wine list and a selection of vegetarian options to cater to every member of a dining party. Coup Des Tartes is also a popular neighborhood bistro but does not sell alcohol. Customers can bring their own wine and pay a modest corking fee. For diners on a budget, the Vincent Market Bistro offers reasonably priced French food.

In Phoenix, sushi bars offer an easy way to eat a light meal. Yasu Sushi Bistro has an extensive menu for discerning guests. Adventurous customers may want to try the small-plate menu to experience a variety of items. Yen Sushi & Sake Bar offers happy hour specials perfect for those with large appetites. For a quick and inexpensive lunch, How Do You Roll? has made-to-order sushi in an casual atmosphere. Families dining in Phoenix may find that eating at How Do You Roll? is an easy way to encourage their children to try new types of food.

From Tex-Mex to authentic Mexican cuisine, Phoenix's close proximity to the border ensures a wide variety of Mexican restaurants. For inexpensive tacos, quesadillas and similar fare, Tacos Atoyac is a great spot. Guests who plan on eating at Tacos Atoyac should be prepared to wait in line during peak lunch and dinner hours. Mariscos Playa Hermosa offers a more upscale menu, including an extensive selection of Mexican-influenced seafood.

True to the spirit of the city, Phoenix restaurants offer plenty of options to the residents of Arizona's capital.
