arizonaWelcome! We’ve restored this website from a backup after being offline and silent for several years. We’re getting started again with writing reviews about places in Arizona, and cool things to do!

This site got its start in 2001 when I registered the domain name. I’ve always been fascinated with new restaurants and places to see in Arizona, and have several websites about our state.

If you are interested in coffee, check out Arizona Coffee for coffee shop reviews.

If you have kids, check out Things to Do in Phoenix With Kids.

I wrote reviews for several years, but became distracted with business and I now have some time to return to reviewing cool restaurants in Arizona!


One claim to fame is that this site receive an insane amount of traffic once when President George W. Bush visited the Tee Pee Tap Room in November of 2005. Apparently, journalists and those with Internet access wondered what this place was, and this site and my review came up first when they searched. Those were the days before Yelp, and the popularity of online consumer reviews.

Please email Chris at chris@arizonareviews.com with any questions or to suggest a place I should check out with my family! You can also follow me on Twitter at @arizonareviews.
