View Full Version : Goodyear, Arizona

I'm taking the family to a friend's place in a little town called Goodyear, AZ this weekend...near the Phoenix International Raceway.

I was curious if there were either any bbq competitions (in 100+ degree heat?!?!?!) or any good bbq joints in that area.

Your thoughts, as always, are very much appreciated!

Not this time of year
In Nov there is a great one near there at Pulte Homes Complex
One of the AZ Guys will cue you in on the local Que

Like Thom said, no competitions until it gets cooler here.

As for restaurants close to Goodyear, your best bet is Fritzis. Address is 1473 N Dysart Rd and it's in Avondale. If your coming in from CA, you might want to stop by Memphis Best BBQ in Buckeye. It's about 20 miles West of Goodyear and is located at 608 E Monroe Ave. I believe that Fritzi's only keeps lunch hours on Sundays and know that Memphis best is closed on Sundays.

The west valley of Phoenix is really not a hotspot area for BBQ restaurants.
