Since the first Chompie's opened at 32nd Street and Shea Boulevard in 1979, the Borenstein family, who came to the Valley from Queens, New York, have established the restaurant as Arizona's best-known location for freshly baked New York-style breads, cakes, pastries, bagels, and bialys. The restaurant specializes in dishes such as pastrami, chicken soup with matzo balls, mini potato knish, and rugelach.
Chompie's now operates locations in Scottsdale, Tempe, Paradise Valley, Chandler, and Glendale.
