12 Restaurants to Check Out in Flagstaff, Arizona
3. Oregano’s Italian Bistro
For those craving traditional Italian, Phoenix area chain Oregano’s is your best bet. As Oregano’s was started by a Chicago family, it is well known for serving authentic Chicago style thin crust & deep dish pizza. Asides from pizza, Oregano’s offers a whole lineup of likely unhealthy (go ahead and treat yourself – you are on vacation!), but totally delicious pasta entrees, appetizers, sides, and desserts.
Must try specialties include the Bollo Pasta (all you can eat angel hair marinara pasta for just 7 bucks), Alfredo the Dark (pasta topped with a creamy Southwestern style sauce with several cheeses, jalapenos, tomatoes, and poblano peppers), the Guaca-Tony (a huge pizza crust topped with a big dollop of guacamole), and the Boom Dip (the most delicious spinach artichoke dip around). For dessert (if you can handle any more food that is), treat yourself to the Original Pizza Cookie, a half pound of your choice of cookie topped with ice cream. Be prepared to wait as Oregano’s is one popular local restaurant – luckily it is worth the wait!
4. Zenith Steakhouse
Zenith is a wonderful steakhouse inside the Twin Arrows casino (about 30 minutes outside of town). It may seem like quite a drive, however, considering the fantastic food, ambiance, and service, it’s worthy of the extra time involved in comparison to waiting in line at one of the overcrowded, overrated downtown tourist trap dining spots. Zenith offers the best ambiance of any fine dining restaurant in the area. The service here is several knotches above the best in town. The beautiful Najavo inspired design is outstanding, making Zentih the top choice for a romantic date night. The Chicken Parmesan and Mediterranean Seafood Pasta are both must trys! And do not worry if you are a vegetarian – the Mushroom Risotto is sure to please just about anyone!
