Haus Murphey's

Big A and I are fans of the hit Food Network show "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives", which is hosted by Guy Fieri.

For those that are unfamiliar with the show, here is the main premise: Guy drives across America to find the best hole-in-the-wall joints which were submitted by viewers. He tests out the food, meets the owners, learns the history of the establishment, and gives viewers at a home a glimpse of some of their specialties.

The show has been to Arizona 12 times. For "Chino Bandidos", "Matt's Big Breakfast", "Aunt Lena's Creamery", "Roberto's Mexican Food", "Three Pitts Again", "Joe's Farm Grill","Salsa Brava", "Brandy's Restaurant and Bakery", "La Piazza Al Forno", "Giuseppe's," "Los Laquitos," and "Haus Murphey's".

Eventually we would like to try all of these joints at some point in time. I think so far, we have tried about 4 of them. We headed over to Haus Murphey's on Saturday for some good ol' German food.
Since this place was located in downtown Glendale, it was quite a drive for us. The food was great, but honestly, I prefer the German Corner (which is now known as Black Forest Mill) in Phoenix much better. For one, the portion sizes are much bigger at the German Corner, plus they have a live polka band on the spot which gives it a more German feel.
Would I recommend this place to my friends? The answer is Yes.....IF you live over in Glendale.
Next restaurant to try: La Piazza Al Forno.

Oooh...we were just at Joe's Farm Grill on Sunday. Sooo yummy! But for a real treat, stop by the Coffee Shop right next door and try one of their homemade cookies-n-cream cupcakes. To. Die. For.
