Worth Takeaway Top 100

The emergence of downtown Mesa as a (for now) low-key dining destination has a fair amount to do with the arrival of Worth Takeaway, a craft sandwich and coffee shop that opened inside a sleek-but-tight 15-seat dining room. Worth was pretty much an instant hit and has recently expanded next door, adding another 15 seats. The crispy chicken sandwich is big here — a heavy handheld of battered chicken strips dripping with a Sriracha honey spread and mayonnaise, topped with pickles and Bibb lettuce, and finished with bread from City Bakery (also a Mesa business). We like the roast beef sandwich, too, and a few other items. But we'll let you find your own usual at Worth Takeaway. New Normal: Indoor seating is not available. Outdoor seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Pickup is always an option, as is delivery through Uber Eats, DoorDash, and Postmates.
