What Classic American Restaurant Food Is at Famous 48?

There’s nothing like the feeling of gathering around a table with friends and family sharing stories and laughs, all while enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal. For some, this image is the quintessential representation of American life, and it doesn’t only have to be experienced at your house. For locals and tourists searching for great American restaurants in Scottsdale, Arizona, set your sights on a dining experience that’s just a little bit more. Pay a visit to Famous 48, where we pride ourselves in delivering more than just food: we provide lasting memories, cold refreshing drinks, and warm satisfied tummies.

Come immerse yourself in the glory of America’s 48th state, and we don’t just mean the food. We serve classic American and Arizona favorites, crafted with an artisanal approach and local ingredients. Our restaurant is designed to honor the beauty of our state with a palette of familiar colors borrowed from those adobe-pink sunsets and the pale-brown dusty roads, famous to the Sonoran Desert.

Start the Evening

While you, your friends, and your family get settled in to enjoy some quality time together, start the evening off with one of our tasty appetizers. Start with a homage to mother’s Southern cooking with our Skillet Cornbread, finished with apple butter and local honey, or a twist on the classics with our Sun Deviled Eggs sprinkled with sugar-cured bacon and topped with jalapeños.

For a zestier option, enjoy some Southwest Egg Rolls stuffed with grilled chicken, pico de gallo, pepper jack cheese, and tomatillo salsa. We also have some of the favorites like Fried Pickles, Grilled Drumettes, and our premium Steak Tips, marinated and served alongside spicy mustard sauce and our signature F48 Sauce.

Satisfying the Thirst

We know the right beverage can be the perfect pairing for a good evening. Whether you’re cooling your thirst after a long day or complementing the main entree, we have options for everyone. Try our take on the classics with an F48 Old Fashioned with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, and Angostura Bitters, or the Snowbowl Whiskey and Coke with Buffalo Trace Bourbon and Coca-Cola slushy.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, check out the Berried Alive with Tito’s vodka, lemon juice, and tri-berry puree, or the Eyes on the Skies with Hendrick’s gin, some crème de violette and maraschino Luxardo liqueur. A favorite of the locals is our Famous 48 Frozen Margaritas, which can also come in strawberry, mango, or prickly pear. You can also never go wrong with an F48 mule, served in a variety of flavors.

If cocktails aren’t your drink of choice, we have a range of red, white, sparkling, and rose wines, as well as draft and bottled beers. For our wine selection, we are partial to some local vintages, showcasing the diverse flavor profiles of the Southwest. Try the AZ Stronghold “Provisioner” red blend, white blend, or rose from Wilcox, Arizona, by the glass or the bottle. The Treana Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, CA, and Cade Sauvignon Blanc from Napa are fine choices as well. If you’re more in the mood for a beer, ask our servers about the Papago Orange Blossom, Mother Road Tower Station IPA, SanTan Devil’s Ale, or the Huss Scottsdale Blonde Ale. Whatever you and your friends are in the mood for, we have a wide array of options to satisfy your thirst.

Filling the Night

The best part of the meal is always the main event, the entrée. It’s the cozy highlight of the evening where everyone can sit back and fully relax as the hunger starts to ease and conversations are in full swing. We cater to all the traditional American foods ranging from large juicy burgers to crisp salads and Southern Fried Chicken. Our bone-in Kingman Chop with apple butter, whipped mashed potatoes, and F48 corn is a crowd-pleaser, along with our slow-roasted Baby Back Ribs coupled with some creamy Famous Mac & Cheese. For the guests looking for something a little lighter in fare, we recommend the Border Bowl with cilantro lime rice, avocado, pico de gallo, black beans, shredded cheese, and the choice to add a protein. Our classic American cooking with an artisanal approach is sure to satisfy.

If you’re looking to have that traditional American Prime Rib Dinner, we offer this experience Friday through Sunday. You get your choice of a 10-ounce Cholla Canyon or 14-ounce Echo Canyon prime rib, paired with whipped Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, garlic broccoli, and an au jus.

The Finale

As the night of family, friends, and fun begins winding down, there’s no better way to end the evening than with a delicious dessert. We’re all about combining hot baked confections with cold creamy ice cream. Try out the Bourbon Apple Crumble with bourbon caramel and vanilla bean ice cream. Or you could experience our caramelized banana, croissant, and banana bread pudding topped with bourbon caramel and ice cream. For a more traditional dessert, you can’t go wrong with our chocolate chip Skillet Cookie topped with vanilla bean ice cream and chocolate sauce. Whichever way you finish it, we know your taste buds will be happy.
