10 CLASSIC RESTAURANTS IN METRO PHOENIX

Don and Charlie's — THIS is the original chop shop.

Don and Charlie's 

You don't have to be a fan of baseball to enjoy Don and Charlie's (though it might help you appreciate all the autographed memorabilia on the walls). The Scottsdale eatery is something of a pastime itself, serving up classic comforts like chopped liver, potatoes au gratin, and baby back ribs while other younger restaurants rely on the nuances of fusion fare and hard-to-miss speakeasys to make themselves known. When you've been the go-to spot for springing training tourists and local meat lovers alike since 1981, predicability has its perks.
