Raceway Bar & Grill (Maricopa, Arizona, U.S.A.)

Raceway Bar & Grill, 49237 West Papago Road, Maricopa, Arizona, U.S.A.  This cool place is out in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the desert!  I loved this place the moment that I stepped in the doors.  It is loaded with automotive memorabilia and collectibles.  Everything from valve covers, engine heads, old car grills, hubcaps, oil signs and more hanging from the ceiling and on the walls. Hundreds of licence plates are all over the walls. There is an L shaped granite sit up bar that seats 10. I had "Rita" as my Bartender and she was great, very friendly and welcoming.  It is not every day the bartender introduces him or her self and also makes you feel very welcome.  Outside they have a covered area with another sit up bar bar that is L Shaped and seats 18-20 people.  Then there is the large courtyard area with picnic tables, palm trees and more old signs.  The TV Show "American Pickers" even made a visit here and was aired on their show!  How cool is that!  They have 12 different types of beer on tap.  One of their specialties is their thin crust pizza with lots of options. I was not too hungry so I had the Chips and homemade pico and salsa at $4.25.  It was very good indeed!  It is about and hour out of Phoenix and 10 minutes or so out of Maricopa the city its self.  It is worth the drive from Phoenix to try it out.  They have a pin map so you can mark where you are from. I really enjoyed it here and would love to return some day!
