New Local Dining Options Abound

Dori Wittrig April 28, 2021

The appeal of dining out has not waned for most people over the last year. Not only have our local restaurants remained open, but several new eateries have come to life during this time, too.

Georgie’s Diner

Georgie’s was located on La Montana for years, but they recently relocated to Park Place on Avenue of the Fountains with a brand-new look, an updated menu, and a large patio area. Although they have breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus, many people are thrilled to find out they serve breakfast all day. Gluten-free eaters can easily find a great meal here. And word on the street is that they serve great liver and onions.

Fountain Hills Food Cart

After a temporary hiatus, Dakota and Austin are back with an incredible state-of-the-art food truck to serve outstanding hotdogs. They have also expanded their menu to include hamburgers. If you are gluten-free, try their delicious tacos. You can find them Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM on the Avenue of the Fountains between Chase Bank and the new ZAB Thai restaurant.

Papaya’z Smoothie & Juice Bar is also located in Park Place on Avenue of the Fountains. In addition to healthy drinks with real ingredients, they also serve delicious gluten-free crepes and some sandwiches, including a gluten-free croissant sandwich. If you want a healthy breakfast, lunch, or snack, this is the place.
