Plenty of praise has been heaped upon the beers over at Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. (chef’s kiss to that extra-peachy Sonoran Prince), but the food at this “Arizona-inspired scratch kitchen” is top-notch as well. Wild concoctions like the peanut butter and jalapeno jelly burger and the dry-rub chicken drumsticks confit are reason alone to drop in to the original Gilbert location, which opened in 2013. Ditto the duck fat fries, which are memorable, weighty, and served piping-hot, flavored with rosemary and thyme, and paired with garlic aioli; no visit to the brewery should go without a basket for the table. AZ Wilderness opened a beer garden in downtown Phoenix on Roosevelt Row in 2019, and this location offers a tighter version of the Gilbert flagship’s menu. But the fries are available, as are other go-tos like the Downtowner Burger (corn guac, pepper jack, onion strings), the AZ Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich, and the shareable bites of Buffalo cauliflower.
