If you are a sports fan, you’ll want to make sure you pay a visit to Don & Charlie’s, a Scottsdale, AZ institution.

Almost every inch of wall and ceiling space is covered with some sort of sports memorabilia and this restaurant is also a go-to spot for Spring Training. From the menu: “In 1959 our family moved to Arizona and I discovered Spring Training. I was in baseball heaven watching Ted Williams, Willie Mays and the rest of the players get ready for opening day. Spring Training is still the best. Every day I hit a different park, watch drills, batting practice, and just realize that I am the luckiest guy on the planet. Since 1959, I have met childhood heroes, met great folks from all over the country, and have been lucky enough to become part of the community and able to make a living. It doesn’t get better than this.”

The atmosphere is fantastic and you never know who you might see dining at this hot spot.

The menu boasts an array of burgers and BBQ and an extensive wine list, but I, of course, ordered the Bloody Mary.

Don and Charlie's Bloody Mary

Mix: Homemade

Chaser: None offered.

Fixin’s: One lime, celery

Price: $?

This Bloody Mary had good flavor, but was pretty plain by our standards. We suggest you stick to one of their specialty martinis, cosmos and cocktails with your meal when you make it to Don & Charlie’s.
