5 Bars in Metro Phoenix to Eat at Sober

Historically speaking, bars aren't known for having great food. Serviceable in a pinch, sure, but generally not places you'd go to have a delicious dinner (or breakfast).

These days, modern bars and clubs are trying to change all of that by serving restaurant-quality food during the day before they focus on booze at night. Particularly in Scottsdale and Tempe, many places thought of as watering holes are now serving food actually worth eating during the day. Here are five Metro Phoenix bars we eat at without drinking -- or complaining.
