Not from Arizona originally? Missing the great tastes of your hometown food? There’s a great chance that if you are from another state, your favorite food is most likely already here in Arizona. If it’s not, it is surely on its way.
Arizona has been listed as one of the top places for migration across the US. So whether you’re from the West Coast or the East Coast or somewhere in the middle, chances are you will find a taste of home here.
New York, Maryland, Michigan?
Chicago has a large number of its restaurants here but before we dive into that, let’s take a look at places from across the US.
Craving a hoagie or Philly cheesesteak? Then we’ve got you covered at Corleone’s in Phoenix or Scottsdale. For you Marylanders, Ernie’s Karaoke and Sports Bar serves up some authentic Maryland crab. Die-hard Steelers fan? You can find a club with your name on it and Iron City Beer at Harold’s Corral in Cave Creek.
If you’re from the Buffalo, New York area, there is no doubt that you may be missing a dog right about now. To fix that craving, simply check out Ted’s Hot Dogs in Tempe. You won’t be disappointed. They offer cheese sauce and all the fixings your heart desires!
The Windy City
