Visiting restaurants in the 1950s, Phoenix, Arizona


I'm hungry, and I thought it would be nice to do an imaginary visit to some restaurants in the 1950s in Phoenix, Arizona. And since my favorite meal is a nice big steak, I thought we would start at the Stockyards. Actually, they're still there, at 50th Street and Washington, but if we visit in the '50s we can see some cool cars in the parking lot!



That was delicious, but I'm still hungry. How about some Mexican Food at Macayo's? If we go there in the '50s it will be on Central just south of Indian School Road. How about a chimichanga? Whatever you want!


Chinese Food? Of course! Let's go to the Cathay Garden restaurant at 1320 N. Central. Classy place! No, I don't know how to use chop sticks, I hope they have forks!




How about going over to Mesa, and eating at the Feed Bag? I have the address right here, 554 W. Main. Will you drive? I really don't know my way around Mesa!




And since this is an imaginary visit, and the budget is unlimited, let's go to the Green Gables, at 24th Street and Thomas!




How about Scottsdale? We could go to Bimbo's, it's on the northeast corner of Indian School Road and Scottsdale Road. I'm glad you're driving, even in the 1950s I would get lost.


More Chinese food? Of course, I can never get enough! Let's go to Toy's Shangi-La, at 16th Street and Camelback Road.


And while we're at it, let's go over to Tempe and eat at the Huddle restaurant, on the southeast corner of University and Mill, near the Arizona State campus. Looks like they're open from 5 am to 2:30 am. We'd better hurry!

Wow, I'm stuffed! Thank you for visiting restaurants with me in the 1950s!
