4800 N Scottsdale Rd
The ruggedness and crackle of the wood-fire cooking used at Roaring Fork makes this one of our favorite spots in Scottsdale. This place fits in perfectly with the dining scene in town due to its selection of Southwest-inspired dishes, like the slow-roasted pork shoulder carnitas, tortilla soup, and grilled fish tacos -- all of which are cooked on a wood fire, just like in the Old West. Select meats are all prepared on either the restaurant’s rotisserie or the open flame, which means that, from the “Big Ass” burger to that sugar-cured duck breast, you’ll more than likely leave here satisfied.
