Have you ever walked into a bar for the first time and felt like you’d walked into your favorite local place? That’s the feeling I get at Karsen’s Grill in Old Town Scottsdale. I’ve gone there by myself just to have a beer after a workout, and I’ve never felt like I was there alone!
It’s also a great place to meet up with friends or make new ones. John and Ray, the fabulous owners of Karsen’s, have told me, “There are no first-timers here; we treat you like one of our own.” People that I have recommended the restaurant to have told me that is exactly how they feel.
Not only is it a friendly, comfortable place, but they have the best burgers in Scottsdale! Locals love their sandwiches and salads, too. Their daily specials have become something of a local legend. The Machaca Beef Burrito is a true original, and another favorite is the Spaghetti & Meatballs.
And since there is always room for dessert, you’ll appreciate the seasonal sweets from Tracy Dempsey to complete your Karsen’s Grill experience!
I tell people that walking into Karsen’s Grill is like walking into your own version of “Cheers”, and if your name is Norm, all the better!
