Around St. Joe's Hospital(PHX)?

My mom has been at St Joes the last few days...we live down in Chandler and don't get up this way too often. Have been going to see her at night and are usually starving by the time we leave around 8. Besides My Florist Cafe any suggestions for something inexpensive, fairly quick but tasty(comforting would be a good plus!) in the immediate area(7th Ave and Thomas)?

  1. Unfortunately, a lot of the inexpensive places in Midtown are closed by eight. Z Pizza is just across the street from St. Joe's on the south side of Thomas and is open at that time.

    Here's a recent thread on the same area:

    1. Oh, thanks! That's really helpful!

      1. I used to live at Central and Thomas.

        Pino's Pizza at 2nd and Thomas is AWESOME.
        Honey Bears BBQ at Central and Thomas is good as well.
        I'm a huge fan of China Chili at Osborn and 3rd Street, yum best casual chinese in the city.

          Just as an FYI, Pino's shuts down at 8. Also, are you sure China Chili is on 3rd St? I know they used to be on *Central* at Osborn, but closed that location (due to the light rail construction?) and were supposed to open at a new location. Just wondering if the move already happened. If so, that would be great, as it's one of our favorites in that area.

            Never mind about my China Chili question. I see it was answered in the thread referenced above. :-)

            1. re: hohokam

              they have been open in that location for nearly 6 months now. It's where the old Van's California Daze used to be.

                Due to all the construction craziness on Central, I've kind of been been avoiding that area since I came back to town last September. I'm glad to hear that they're still nearby. Sometimes I catch myself daydreaming about their tofu pillows and their spicy eggplant.

          2. La Pinata has decent Sonoran style Mexican food that is fairly inexpensive. They are at 19th Avenue and Osborn.
