Patio Dining in Tempe: A Local Guide

Whether it’s a five-star resort or a cozy BBQ joint, there are plenty of outdoor dining options in Tempe for every taste and budget.

Locals and tourists agree that the winter and spring months are the best time of the year to dine outside in Arizona. With concerns about the indoor transmission of COVID-19, dining outdoors offers an additional layer of protection.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) have stated that dining outdoors significantly decreases the risk of viral transmission.
