Rita's Kitchen is the casual, Southwestern eatery tucked inside Camelback Inn, the place where hotel guests can go for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and locals can soak up the Sonoran charm. The comfort food here may not be innovative, but it's pretty good, and the appealing atmosphere and excellent drinks, like stellar red sangria, make up for any shortcomings.
