Blue Coyote Cantina - KennethI’ve been meaning to do a Dot Com Food review of Blue Coyote Cantina, a great Mexican place inside the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Blue Coyote Cantina™ is the ideal spot for those who seek a true Southwestern experience in Scottsdale. The southwestern inspired menu featuring tacos, burritos and much more packs a punch that pairs well with the large selection of tequilas.

Enjoy dining in an upscale atmosphere with chic modern furniture and live entertainment daily after 4pm. If you’re feeling lucky, our casino floor is just steps away with exciting slots and table games.

I’ve eaten here a couple times but I’ve had my eyes on the Braised Pork Enchiladas…Continue reading

Jet’s Pizza Scottsdale, Arizona – Dot Com Food


Jet's Pizza ScottsdaleI was out the other night in Scottsdale asking around about a good pizza place. I was told Jet’s Pizza Scottsdale is really good, so that was enough for me.

This year stopped by briefly to see one of my closest friends, John Gaudesi at Schecter Guitar Research. John is one of the preeminent electric guitar builders in the industry and I mainly just wanted to see him.Continue reading

Covered in today’s video (below):Continue reading
