Owners of The Grind Open New Restaurant in Tempe
St. Louis "Root Beer" Ribs with Brew City Fries.
Allen and Traci Thompson, owners of The Grind and next-door neighbor Chick Rotisserie & Wine Bar near Arcadia, appear to have branched into Tempe territory with their newest restaurant, Mad G's Grill & Tavern.
Located at 19 East Broadway (Broadway and Mill), Mad G's opened Friday, June 15, describing itself as "a neighborhood establishment that serves quality food," "a quality dive," and "'pub grub' at a higher level."
Along with drink specials and weekly events, chef Bevin O'Neil has created a menu of American favorites like wings, Angus beef burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas. And Mad G's says its beer isn't only for drinking -- it's for cooking too. There's Stone Smoked Porter in the chili, Lumberyard IPA in the braised mushrooms, and the restaurant's house brew is used in the pizza dough.
