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

Little Miss BBQ

Foodies, rejoice: Scott Holmes’ low-and-slow Valley institution is bringing its smoker to the Desert Oasis between the 5th and 6th holes, serving brisket breakfast burritos and other barbecue delicacies to the TPC throng.

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 the famed Thunderdog, created by beloved Thunderbird old-timer Martin Calfee.


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

Tortas Paquime

Valley culinary mastermind Omar Alvarez (Pa’La) brings his beloved Mexican sandwichery to the TPC, serving hand-held masterpieces like the Torta Cubana (ham, shredded pork, turkey, beans) to fans at the Fan Zone.
