BEST PLACE TO EAT LUNCH IF YOU'RE HAVING A BAD DAY Phoenix 2006 - Welcome Diner
Welcome Diner is the heart of Roosevelt Row ? we have friends who swear by the place, not as a good spot to grab lunch but as a mood elevator. Located just east of the gallery action, the diner has quickly become the weekday afternoon hangout for developers, artists and shopkeepers, who gather to eat the hamburgers and fries and catch up on neighborhood gossip. The joint is small ? the diner is a Valentine original, manufactured in Kansas ? and the A/C has to work hard to keep up with the hustle on the counter stools as well as behind the counter. Don't miss one of the house specialties, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies baked two at a time in a toaster oven. You'll blow your diet, but we promise you'll leave Welcome Diner in a good mood.
