Restaurants open on Christmas

We are arriving on the 24th of December. Are there any restaurants open in Scottsdale on Christmas?

Thanks!

Are you looking for a place to have Christmas dinner? If so, i would head for one of the resorts, they will all have special menus for the day.

If you just want a place to eat after traveling, i imagine many casual places will be open as well, but i do know Chompies is open...at least their Tempe location will be: http://www.chompies.com/ It's got a great menu.

El Chorro is also open Christmas Eve and Day. That is how we first found them. BTW AZFAn we took your advise and did their happy hour. Really enjoyed it. :-)

It would be helpful to know where in Scottsdale you will be staying. The city is quite spread out. And what sort of meal you are looking for - regular or Holiday dining. As noted above, resort restaurants will be open because they have guest they need to serve. There are also a number of chains and local establishments that will be open.

El Chorro is an exceptional choice.

Thanks for all the help. We will be staying at the Gainey Suites Hotel.

Sounds like El Chorro is a very popular choice.

Thelrose, so glad to hear you enjoyed it at El Chorro! It really is a gem.

nebraska, if you have a chance to try the Village Tavern there in the Gainey Village, it is one of our favorites as well. Also, Paradise Bakery is there. It is a chain, but really a good place for a quick meal or coffee/muffin...have an enjoyable visit to Scottsdale!

Not sure if it is open Christmas, but during your stay at Gainey Suites you might like to try Wally's American Pub & Grill, which is just to the east on Doubletree Ranch Road. The Village Tavern is also great. Lots of tough choices. Have fun!

I too will be in Scottsdale on Xmas. We'll have a car, so anywhere in Scottsdale, or even adjacent, is fine. I am NOT interested in paying 3X normal price just because of the day it is ... ... can anyone name some places that are charging normal entree prices? Thanks.
