January is here and it is time to celebrate 2022 with family.

What better way to celebrate than a special dinner out and we have just the spot for you to check out this month or any time of the year.

Wicked Brews, Bites & Spirits is an amazing restaurant with a ton of options. The name might suggest it is more adult-friendly sort of spot, but the owners believe in family for sure. This location in Ahwatukee is such a great spot for people of all ages to hit up if they are looking for a great bite to eat.

The restaurant is open 7 days a week but does offer brunch menu and options on the weekends from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., which is great for anyone looking for a cool new morning spot to check out. Then there is their lunch/dinner menu. So many options – but where to begin.

Start with the starters of course. Hummus, Edamame, Grilled Avocado, Pretzel bites – and that isn’t even all of them. Certainly a lot of options when it comes to kicking off a great meal or if you are looking for a smaller plate or bite to eat. As for the main course, they definitely have you covered there as well. Looking for wings, they have them, both in regular chicken wings and even duck wings.

Rather try a burger? They have that as well and some very delicious options to select from including a Juicy Lucy, your Classic Cheeseburger and others.

How about a little lighter dinner option? Wicked Brews, Bites and Spirits offers several salad options as well so you don’t feel like you have to eat traditional pub-style food.

If you are in the mood for something else, they probably have that too! Fish and Chips, Mac and Cheese, and pizza options as well. There is obviously something for every taste bud at the table.

Be warned however, many of the portions are huge in size so be sure to come hungry, get ready to share or be prepared to bring some of that good, hearty food home for a second meal.

The restaurant is in the heart of Ahwatukee at 4921 E. Ray Road, just off the loop 101. They are open weekdays at 11 a.m. and brunch starts at 9 a.m. on the weekends. They also have a happy hour menu available Monday through Friday between 2-6 p.m.

They often hold special events geared towards families and kids, so be sure to be on the lookout for those announcements on social media @WickedBBS or on their website at
