Phoenix-Scottsdale Lunch Restaurants Offering Curbside, Takeout, or Delivery

Since Arizona’s order to close bars, restaurants, and other public spaces, local Phoenix-Scottsdale lunch restaurants in the area and its surrounding cities have closed their doors to the public in an attempt to flatten the curve. Unfortunately, this same endeavor towards a protected Valley of the Sun has forced some restaurants to close down and employees have been sent home with no work to sustain their livelihood. 

Here at Birch River, we are fervent supporters of local and small businesses in the area, knowing that independent businesses are the true heart and soul of our cities. Now, with a multitude of restaurants shifting to the world of online ordering, pick up, delivery, and to-go services, we wanted to feature some of our favorite local restaurants which are perfect to grab lunch. Below are some local gems we invite you to support!

Another extraordinary Phoenix-Scottsdale lunch restaurant is the St. Francis Restaurant, an “Urban gathering place in the heart of Phoenix.” This neighborhood restaurant offers a drool-worthy menu featuring a juicy french onion burger, pork chile verde, and their “forbidden” rice bowl.

With local restaurants closing temporarily and managers making the tough decision to cut staff, remember to support those who are still serving the Phoenix-Scottsdale community and doing everything they can to continue supporting their employees.
