have to eat inside arena - best of the lot???

OK. My niece and her new hubby are going to be in Phoenix for 2 night, with one of them going to a hockey game at arena. Since the game starts at 6pm, they won't have a chance to get dinner beforehand and they are leaving early the next morning to drive to L.A.
Out of the choices available at the arena, what would be the best choices? They are from back East, so they'll know nothing of the stands except the the national chain-type stuff.

  1. I think there is a Samurai Sams there. That would be my first choice - I love their teriyaki bowls.

    1. See if you can get club level tickets. They have a great buffett up there that is as good is it gets in the arena. As far as the vendors on the concourse go, Tortilla flats does a good quesadilla, and the brats at the deli stands are passable.

      1. I guess I don't see as where they have to eat inside the arena, unless it will absolutely kill them to miss a second of the game. It's in the Westgate Center which has a number of sit-down and fast-casual restaurants, and there are TVs everywhere, and the announcers are piped outside of the stadium. There is a Tuscan Oven, a Johnny Rockets, a Which Wich, a Moe's, a Shane's Rib Shack -- those are all fast casual. For sit down, there's a Yard House, Margaritaville, Kabuki, Gordon Biersch, Camarones, etc.
