Best Multi-Task Lunch - 2012
Campfire Grill, inside Tom's Thumb Fresh Market
Like the lovechild spawned from an errand-running orgy, this friendly, counter-service eatery inside Tom's Thumb Fresh Market in North Scottsdale puts the mmm in multi-tasking. Surrounded by a high-end car wash, gas station, coffee shop, farmers market, and wine shop, Campfire serves up satisfying, Southern-style barbecue along with other Mexican and American favorites to its time-crunched customers doing their shopping one-stop style. Smoked over hickory and pecan hardwoods, the 'cue features loaded pulled pork sandwiches and luscious beef brisket with sides like a dreamy baked mac 'n' cheese. And, for multi-taskers wanting to check dinner off the to-do list, takeout is available.
