Zuma Grill & Lounge

605 S. Mill Ave.
Tempe, AZ 85281


  • Daily 11am-2am
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining, Takeout
Clustered near popular Mill Avenue hangouts Mill Cue Club and Fat Tuesday, the tiny Zuma Grill draws in countless college co-eds and serves as both a noshery and nightspot. Most of the day, it's a laidback lunch and dinner spot offering American pub eats. After 10 p.m., however, it becomes a den of dancing and debauchery. Things can get a bit cozy, bordering on cramped, during the weekends, often resulting in crowding out on the matchbook-sized sidewalk patio and a huge line to get in. Dressing to impress is recommended, especially if you'd like to bypass the masses.
