The (far) West Valley is on its way up -- the Valley food chain, that is.
Next Monday, Majerle's Sports Grill will open its third location at 13375 W. McDowell Rd., just west of Dysart Rd. in Goodyear.
Majerle's, which is named for (and owned by) Dan Majerle, the three-time NBA All-Star and current assistant coach to the Suns, originally opened in downtown Phoenix on 2nd St. and Washington in 1992, and was followed by a 2007 Chandler addition, located off the Loop 101 at Chandler Blvd.
In any case, it will surely be the place to go to watch a game (if you're not in the stadium itself). There will be no less than 20 high-def screens, including one that is 12 feet high.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
