The Greater Phoenix area has many restaurants that offer amazing dishes, but there are others that go far beyond the food.

These are some of the most unique eateries Arizona has to offer:

Hatter & Hare
This Alice in Wonderland-inspired restaurant boasts oversized furniture, vivid murals, lively decor, and an interesting menu. On the menu, you’ll find “jitterbug perfume,” “big shoulders,” and “croquet with flamingos.” They even offer rabbit food on their menu to go along with the hare theme.

Camp Social
Just jump across the parking lot for this campground-themed restaurant where the motto is, “home is where you park it.” Inside the establishment, there are actual RVs parked where you can order. At the bar, some seating options are tire swings. The camp theme is carried throughout the menu. For instance, you can order a smores drink, and you can even make your own smores at your table.

Organ Stop Pizza
At this establishment, you can enjoy a pizza as you listen to one of the largest Wurlitzer pipe organs in the world. They opened their doors in 1972 and they also offer pastas, sandwiches, salads and desserts. 

Taco Guild
Taco Guild is in an old chapel that was built in the late 1800s. The church was called Smith’s Chapel and was renamed to Bethel Methodist Church to honor the builder’s home church in Illinois. Inside you will see stained glass windows, antique lighting fixtures, painted murals, and vaulted wood ceilings. Aside from aesthetics and history, the restaurant has earned the liking of many for their tacos.

Coming Soon: Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament
Huzzah! The 11th century-inspired kingdom, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, will be opening its doors this summer at the Talking Stick Entertainment District. They have other “castles” in nine other locations across the United States. Here you will be able to grab a bite (literally) at the utensil-free four-course dinner, all while watching knights battle for the Queen in a two-hour jousting tournament, using a wide range of real weaponry.
