I need to find a place for an early-ish dinner (starting ~4:30 or 5:00) for this saturday for a kids bday party dinner, for about 8-12 people. Pretty open to cuisines (last year we did Korean bbq).
Key is that we want a place that does family-style meals, not individual plates. STRONGLY prefer to stay aware from chain restaurants. Affordable (but not styrofoam plate & disposable tableware cheap) preferred. Would love for it to be within 10-15 minutes from the PHX zoo, since that's where we are headed after dinner.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
