For today’s Foodie Friday, I’m talking all about a restaurant that I’ve driven past thousands of times and finally had to opportunity to dine at. That restaurant is Twin Peaks. Now let’s talk about the stereotype for a second-honestly I thought Twin Peaks was your typical neighborhood sports bar with scantily clad women and flash friend frozen wings. While the waitresses do wear crop tops and shorts, I was totally wrong about the whole concept and food…in the BEST way possible. Plus the owners are doing something to give back to the community this summer so we’re talking great food from a scratch made kitchen AND helping our community? Heck ya, I’m in.
So let’s talk about the food- Twin Peaks, the ultimate sports lodge dishes out hearty comfort food made fresh daily and is home to the famous 29 degrees, teeth-chattering draft beer and craft cocktails. I was excited to find out the restaurant is home to one of the freshest guacamoles and creamy queso in my neighborhood. #score. The menu also features Billionaires Bacon, a platter of thick cut bacon covered in brown sugar, red chili flakes, and smoked paprika and wings in a variety of flavors. Parmesan Garlic and Thai Chili were my faves.
Entrée options range from burgers to fresh seafood, steaks, tacos, and sandwiches. My favorites were the chargrilled salmon and avocado smash burger. The hubby indulged in an ice cold beer and said it was the coldest beer he had ever had. Come to find out, Twin Peaks is known for their refreshing brews that are perfect this time of year.
As I mentioned, I love a brand the gives back and Twin Peaks has partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix (BGCMP) for a summer sports equipment drive.
From now through August, all three Valley Twin Peaks locations will support the need for sports equipment for local youth. I can tell you from personal experience- sports is expensive and Twin Peaks is giving more families an opportunity to participate. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix hosts summer camps at all 13 BGCMP locations throughout the Valley and provides kids with the opportunity to have fun, meet new friends, discover new interests and create lasting memories.
Basketballs, soccer balls, jump ropes, footballs – any new sports equipment for kids ages 6 to 18 is appreciated and can be donated at any Twin Peaks location. For guests who donate equipment, Twin Peaks will provide a $5 dollar gift card that can be used in the future.
Twin Peaks is located at 2135 E. Camelback Rd. Phoenix, 8787 E. Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd. Scottsdale, and 6922 N. 95th Ave. Glendale. To learn more about Twin Peaks visit www.twinpeaksrestaurant.com
