First Place: The HUB Grill and Bar
1860 S. Stapley Drive
The HUB is a great sports bar that also happens to have a destination-worthy restaurant.
The more established East Mesa location is slightly more family-oriented, and kids are captivated by its big treasure chest full of toys. The Stapley HUB opened a couple of years ago and already has a strong local presence and a lively patio atmosphere. Both feature acres of wide-screen TVs and home-grown craft beer and distilled spirits.
Families would come just for the wings and burgers, but there are so many good starters, sandwiches, pizzas and entrees that you might have trouble making up your mind. Started by a local group of residents and business professionals, the HUB is the older sibling of the popular UNION Grill & Tap in Gilbert.
