The Dhaba (1876 E. Apache, the-dhaba.com) is the only reason to get off at McClintock/Apache Boulevard, although it's no ordinary Indian restaurant. Here, they serve casual chaat dishes (Indian truckstop snacks) that you won't find anywhere else in town.

Tough it out through the shabby stretch of rail heading into Mesa, and your reward will come at the very end of the line. Here, at the Sycamore/Main Street station, you can choose from excellent, authentic Chinese food (Asian Café Express, 1911 W. Main) or tasty Guatemalan cuisine (Grill El Quetzal, 1933 W. Main) on the east side of Dobson, or a plethora of Chinese and Vietnamese spots at the brand-new Mekong Plaza (66 S. Dobson, mekongplaza.com) right across the street.

Stylish eats and tasty cocktails make Fez a dining highlight along the light-rail line.

Is the light rail more about the destination, or the journey? Considering all the fun restaurants to check out — all within a short walking distance of the stations — I'd say it's a little bit of both.
