Gabby's

Gabby's
Lauren Cusimano
Gabby’s Bar & Grill has been around since 1983 along the Old 87, making it one of the closest bars to the grave of legendary Phoenix drinker-musician Waylon Jennings. In those days, the Mesa watering hole was owned by legendary Valley bar runner Sunstrom and the late Phoenix artist Greg Sheldon. Sheldon’s cartoons no longer adorn the walls (not in plain sight, anyway), but Gabby’s has stuck to its roadhouse-style roots. Expect karaoke nights, a lively patio, TVs, and a menu of fried bar food. If you’re looking for a full meal, go with the gigantic, excessively juicy burgers made on the open grill; for a snack, we like the mozzarella sticks. There are also two pool tables. Gabby's recently got a face lift, but despite the renovation, that great, old bar vibe remains.
635 N. Country Club Dr., Mesa, 85201
