One of my guides for food in Phoenix on this trip, was this article from – the 12 Essential Restaurants in Phoenix.  And it led me to a hot dog place, which arose from a food truck, for lunch – Short Leash Dogs.  The tag line is “Become a Naan Believer”.  I love a good […]


When I was planning our trip, I knew that one morning we’d be starting a day at Matt’s Big Breakfast.  Why not start there, on the first morning?  When we showed up at 8:05 on a Saturday, the place was already packed.  We talked with the host and he said that the 15-20 people waiting […]
