Finding good eats in the Northwest Valley isn't impossible, but it's also not easy. When it comes to worthwhile, independently owned restaurants, this part of town doesn't exactly boast an abundance.
But Peoria and Surprise do claim several excellent restaurants that range from fast-casual gems to upscale restaurants well worth the drive from wherever you live. In fact, our five favorite restaurants in these two cities deliver flavors from both sides of the country and beyond.
Surprise's New York Flavor serves excellent burgers and sandwiches.
New York Flavor
Whether you're looking for something simple, like an excellent burger, or something more elusive, like an New York-style egg sandwich, this Surprise restaurant can deliver. New York Flavor comes from ex-New Yorker Bill Olear and brings a taste of the Big Apple to the Valley of the Sun. For Olear, that doesn't mean nostalgic black and white photos of NYC, but rather bringing quality food to diners at a fair price. The menu includes breakfast and lunch favorites, many of which are named after Big Apple locales. There's the Tribeca, made with roast beef, caramelized onion, tomato, and lettuce, or the Staten Island, with prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato, and roasted peppers.Next Page
