Our favorite spots to grab a bite – or a brew – at the TPC Scottsdale.

1. Flint by Baltaire

Foodies, rejoice: This Biltmore favorite has replaced Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row as the flagship eatery at the Fan Zone, the massive food-and-drink playground you can hardly miss coming through the main entrance.

2. Lifebird Grill

Situated to the right of the 10th green near the 16th hole grandstand, this is the only spot at the TPC where you’ll find find the famed Thunderdog, created by beloved Thunderbird old-timer Martin Calfee (pictured).

3. Zinburger

Once again, the Valley- based gourmet burger house will be slinging its eponymous handheld won-der, topped with Manchego and Zinfandel-braised onions. Located at the Fan Zone.

4. Craft Beer Desert oasis

The former west food court, located near the 5th and 6th holes, got a much-needed makeover, led by a strong lineup of suds (including small-batch legend Saint Archer) and specialty eats available from craft food trucks.

5. Bottled Blonde pizzeria and Beer garden

The Old Town Scottsdale watering hole returns to its spot near the 18th hole. Expect volume beer consumption and bar eats, including BB’s artisanal, thin-crust pizza.
