The Fry Bread House, the Phoenix restaurant that, in 2012, won the James Beard Foundation's America's Classics award honoring legendary, family-owned restaurants across the country, is moving.
Opened in 1992 by Cecelia Miller of the Tohono O'odham Nation, the place the Beard Foundation recognized for its "timeless appeal" currently is located on North Seventh Avenue near Indian School Road. But soon, all that will change.

The Fry Bread House, known for its delectable chewy and flaky fry bread topped with a variety of flavorful ingredients such as chorizo, chiles, and, in its dessert version, butter and chocolate, has been in its current location for 13 years.
Indian Country Today goes on to say when The Fry Bread House opened in 1992, it had just three items on the menu, and that Miller's daughter, Sandra, says her mom made $50 on opening day.
