Phoenix is one of those cities, that despite the summer heat and busy freeways, remains one of the fastest, if not the fastest growing city in the US. Phoenix is currently the 5th largest city in the country, a spot that was lost to Philadelphia in 2010, however regained in 2017. Don’t worry Philly, we show our love around here by honoring the Famous Philly Cheesesteak in Phoenix on our Menu!
There are so many reasons we love Phoenix, and why we are so proud to serve up our tasty Crave-able eats in this amazing town, and here are just a few of the reasons we are glad to call Phoenix our home.

Grand Canyon University
What’s NOT to love about the Lopes! Grand Canyon University, which we are so proud to serve and be in community with, has been doing some great things for Phoenix. Not only is the school being recognized for it’s growth in the past 5 years, for its successful baseball team and growing basketball program under the support of Jerry Colangelo and Phoenix Suns Ring of Honor Honoree turned GCU Head Coach Dan Majerle, GCU is also doing many wonderful things to serve the community.
The University encourages students to get out and make a difference in the community, including opening the doors to local high school students to get tutoring and support, as well as outreach programs to help repair homes in the nearby areas, to show their appreciation. Grand Canyon University President Brian Mueller, who has been under the helm since 2008, has brought a great vision to GCU. He wants GCU to be a not just an institution for higher-learning, he also has brought a vision to build leaders. To challenge and encourage others to be a part of a culture that brings more critical thinking, higher educated and entrepreneurial-minded students and graduates, making a difference from the inside out. GCU, we are honored to serve and to be in the same community with you for sure! GO LOPES!
Diversity is Beautiful!
Everyday, we are proud to serve the community around us. We are so blessed to be in a community in Phoenix where we get to experience diversity. We meet people who have come from different parts of the world every day. What we love the most about this diversity, is that we hear food stories, and get suggestions and requests when orders are made that are unique, and honesty quite delicious!
With these unique orders comes brief stories of why they ask for them. This is what makes us so proud and honored to serve, because we continue to learn and grow as a restaurant. Our community is truly built and colorfully represented with great people, which, in our opinion makes this city, state and country so great.
So tell us, what makes you proud to be a Phoenician?
