The Trolley Restaurant In Arizona You’ll Want To Visit Time And Time Again

Whether you live in Arizona, or are just visiting, it’s a noble effort to attempt to stick with only locally-owned, non-chain restaurants and coffee shops. But let’s face it: it’s okay to color outside the lines – in moderation. Besides, if you are a native, then those are you fellow Arizonans that are working in those establishments, so let’s think about them as a bonus when we’re thinking outside the box and stepping into a chain restaurant. Because… oftentimes, breaking with tradition is worth it. Take the iconic restaurant below, for example.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
