We know Phoenix Suns fans love their two free tacos from Jack in the Box when the team scores 99 points, but just in case the Suns don't do the deed, US Airways Center has several new menu options that may win fans over.
Levy Restaurants and US Airways Center's Executive Chef Stephen Tilder recently introduced upgrades to the concession menus at the arena.
Get a peek at some of the new food items on the menu, after the jump...
Chef Tilder works with local farms and purveyors to include local (yay, local) and fresh (mmm, fresh) ingredients into his recipes.
Highlights from the new menu at ZZ to Go include a turkey meatball grinder with marinara sauce, parmesan cheese on a fresh-baked wheat roll; Sicilian Pizzan, a pizza dough sandwich with hot capicola, salami, smoked ham, provolone, lettuce, tomato, garlic aioli and giardinera. The stand will also carry The Big Cheese, a giant piece of garlic cheese bread made from Focaccia bread. The bread is made for ripping and dipping and is served with two speciality sauces.
Southwest Grille is now offering chicken tinga soft tacos on flour tortillas with Monterrey jack, lettuce, pico de gallo, and cilantro-lime crema.
Niman Ranch's all-natural sausages and meats are now available at the Grilla Dogs stand and in the Verve Energy Lounge (where there's a carvery station).
Guests with tickets for clubs and luxury suites will notice new additions and twists on classic dishes to their menus, too. New menu items include grilled red chili chicken wings made with red chili and lime marinade, char-grilled and served avocado crema and chorizo-poblano fundido made with classic Monterrey cheese dip with spicy pork chorizo, roasted green chili, cilantro and mini corn tostadas.
