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.

The (above) Old Spaghetti Factory is located at 1418 N Central Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85004. (The Chandler location has a bright red trolley, and is located at 3155 W Chandler Blvd. Ste. 9, Chandler, AZ 85226.) The Phoenix location hours are: lunch – M-F 11:00 a.m – 4:00 p.m., S/S 11:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.; dinner – M-Th 4:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m., F/Sa 4:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., and Su 4:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. (Chandler hours vary!)
