  1. Middle Eastern Deli and Bakery on 16th St. just south of Osborn is a good choice. You can get all the usual favorites -- tabouleh, hummus, etc. either to go or to eat on site.

    Blue Burrito Grill used to be a favorite for fast Mexican, but they've closed most of their sites. I think there's still a location at Scottsdale and Shea in the complex with the Harkins Cinema.

    Of the various fast Japanese places, I like Yoshi's best. There are locations in Central Phoenix and Ahwatukee:

    Of course, there are also national chains such as Chipotle, which can be a healthy choice if you don't go overboard in stuffing your burrito with everything imaginable.

    1. There's two Zoes Kitchen's in PHX - http://www.zoeskitchen.com/. Their menu options are pretty healthy and all documented on the website. You can even call ahead even though their food generally takes a couple of minutes.

      1. wanna give any help with a location?

              1. Thaipan at Pinnacle Peak and Miller in N Scottsdale serves some really good Thai food and it comes out fast. Plus they have some of the best lettuce wraps around.

                1. Grab a Guedo Burro at Guedo's Taco Shop, near Chandler Boulevard and Arizona Avenue in Chandler. Freshly grilled beef, fresh avocado, white cheese, paper-thin tortilla -- much less heavy than your typical burrito.

                  1. re: Bill on Capitol Hill

                    I haven't been to that place in years, but back when I lived down there, I loved that place!

                      Guedos has good horchata. I used to work in the area and we'd hit it about once a month.

                    2. We had really good sandwiches brought in from Sacks for a lunch meeting. I haven't tried anything else yet but the menu looks promising. There are several locations, including one on 3rd Ave. and Thomas. Here is the web site:
