Ingo's Tasty Food
Ingo’s Tasty Food is an Arizona staple, and coming Winter of 2023, Scottsdale fans will have a location near them.
Founded in Arcadia, Arizona, in 2013, Ingo’s is known for their Shattered Potato Chips, Crispy Chicken Sammy, and Ingo’s Chopped Chef Salad. These fan favorites will be included on the Scottsdale menu, plus the full all-day breakfast menu, which includes homemade pastries. Customers can also look forward to Ingo’s popular drinks, like the Greyhound, a gin, grapefruit, lemon, and mint drink, and an espresso program.
When CEO Adam Strecker opened the first and second Ingo’s locations in Arcadia and Downtown Phoenix, he carefully considered the infrastructure and environment when designing the layout. He took that same level of consideration when planning for the nearly 3,000-square-foot building in Scottsdale.
The decision to open a Ingo’s Scottsdale location was easy for Strecker. The restaurant is designed to fit in with the suburban vibe on E. Mayo Blvd and hopes to attract customers from the nearby neighborhoods, the Mayo Hospital, and Arizona State University’s Health Futures Center. Buck & Rider, another LGO Hospitality business and popular seafood restaurant, is next door.
Ingo’s North Scottsdale will have a patio and indoor seating, with a canopy, thanks to the 5,800 sq feet roof. The canopy will be supported by beams and provide a massive seating cover. Strecker and his team are using the California-based LOHA Architectural and Design Firm to create a unique restaurant built from the ground up.
Ingo’s Tasty Food serves up some really tasty food. Next time you visit, be sure to try the Crispy Chicken Sammy that was mentioned earlier. It is as crispy as it sounds and is topped with dill pickles, slices of Granny Smith Apple, and Sirachi Aioli in between a toasted Brioche Poppyseed bun.
Other highlights include the Turkey Chopped Salad and Bistro Steak Salad. The house oven-roasted turkey sits on a bed of mixed greens tossed with an avocado lebni dressing sprinkled with bacon, hard-boiled eggs, carrots, and Mama Lil’s peppers. The steak salad is made up of mixed greens with a house vinaigrette and topped with Mama Lil’s peppers and Laurel Chanel goat cheese. The steak is a bistro filet cooked with a gremolata pan sauce, which makes for a delicious and moist piece of meat.
Ingo’s is also known for its drink options. They offer drinks for any customer, including a list of non-alcoholic beverages, coffee, tea, wine, beer, and hand-crafted cocktails. Check out Ingo’s to-go drink choices if you are setting up for a gathering. You can get a 16oz cocktail that serves 2-3 people or a 32oz for 4-5 people.
Plus, the restaurant offers a Happy Hour! From 3 to 6 p.m. daily, you can get $6 house cocktails or Highballs.
