Where to Eat and Drink Near Salt River Fields

Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies: Salt River Fields 7555 N. Pima Road, Scottsdale, saltriverfields.com The most important advice we can give you regarding finding food near Salt River Fields: avoid the Pavillions shopping center, unless McDonald's and 5 & Diner are your idea of fine dining. You will have to drive a bit to get to the good stuff, but it's there -- usually hidden at the back of a strip mall or inside a hotel. We're not listing dessert in this guide, so we'll just have to tell you up front to be sure to make a stop at Sweet Republic for a scoop of ice cream or a sundae; the name sounds familiar because you've seen it in the pages of national food mags and on the Food Network.
