Flat out, this is a great place to eat! The owner Liz has created a fantastic restaurant in the heart of Jerome. Right there on Main Street, you cant miss this place. it is located just below the Haunted Hamburger but is by no means a step down. In fact, the Chef Alex does an amazing job and so far I have never had anything less that a great meal there.
The menu is extremly broad, and is THE place to eat breakfast in Jerome. My personal favorite is the Biscuits and Gravy, but there are so many good choices. At lunch you can get an awesome cheeseburger that gives the Haunted Hamburger a run for the money, But that's not all. There is a great variety of Appetizers all at very reasonable prices, they even have about six kinds of soup. They are also open for Dinner and have a number of seafood and veggie choices as well.

Are you serious about pasta? Do you love Itailian? Then this is your place. Right there on Main Street accross for the world famous Spirit Room is a culinary delight. My personal favorite is the pasta bowl creation where you can mix and match your choice of pasta, sauce, meats and vegtables to create your own masterpiece.
If that's not enough to entice you inside, think about this: This place is run by the same people that own and operate the Haunted Hamburger. So in my mind it has to be good. These people are the best restaurateurs in the entire Verde Valley. So dig in folks.

With all the great places to eat in Jerome, there had to be a Mexican restaurant. Well this is it. Set in the dimunitive former safeway building, this tasty restaurant serves up traditional mexican food with a little flare. Inside there are just a few tables, so get there early and enjoy.
This restaurant is also located on Main Street, just a bit down hill from the Mile High Grill. Interestingly enough, this was actually the first Safeway in all of Arizona - all 1000 square feet of it. In any case, you will not go there for the supermarket nostaglia but for the good food and spirits.
Try a tequilla flight and you will be well on your way to happiness. To map the location: 363 Main Street Jerome AZ 86331 or call 928.649.9090.
For something completely different head down hill to the Bordello Restaurant. Here you can sample a Sexy Bison, a ominous menu item labeled the Sausage Fest or if you're like me and that's not your thing, you can try the Hippe Hash Plate. Despite the creative names, you are sure to enjoy this fare.
As you will see, this restaurant is built on quite an angle. Perhaps that's why the chef here is a bit different but always with an eye for nutritional, healthy meals. No matter what, you are sure to find something you will enjoy here - and surely will have something to talk about when you head home.
