Can’t Stop Smokin’ BBQ

It’s Tuesday! And naturally that means today is an Artsy Fartsy Foodies day. We are excited to focus our attention on one of our savory Eat Your Art Out Chandler restaurants, Can’t Stop Smokin’ BBQ.

The roots for Can’t Stop Smokin’ BBQ were planted in 1991 at the deli counter of Frank’s Fruit Market in Ruidoso, New Mexico.  Owners, Pete and Cassandra Schiavone, had dreamed of opening a quality food business. Their dream came to life and blossomed quickly into a success. After franchising the business, the quality agenda began to spread across the United States. And we are lucky enough to be apart of their delicious dream.

Their New Mexico style smokehouse was developed as part of the largest, freshest product market in the southwest. Technique and time are as important as the rubs, seasonings, and sauces that they have spent years perfecting.

So when you walk into Can’t Stop Smokin’ for your next meal, you will find you are greeted by a great menu, great staff who love what they do and are proud of the food they serve.

Be sure to visit Can’t Stop Smokin BBQ on Tuesday, February 26 for lunch or dinner! 25% of their sales help support various programs at the Center.

Hours:

  • 10:30am-9:00pm Sun.-Thurs.
  • 10:30am-10:00pm Sat. – Sun.

Artsy Fartsy Foodies: Serrano’s

Margaritas, homemade bean dip, hot tortilla chips, enchiladas, tacos…mmmm…

All of these amazing Mexican traditions can be found under one roof, Serrano’s Mexican Food. And to our delight, Serrano’s Mexican Food will be joining us for Eat Your Art Out Chandler on February 26, 2013.

In 1979,  Ernie and Eva Serrano were working in the family business, Serrano’s Clothing Store, in downtown Chandler. Using the same Serrano’s logo as their clothing stores, Ernie and Eva bravely opened their first restaurant just behind their clothing store. The restaurant quickly became a customer favorite.

Fast forward to today. The Serrano family now owns and operates eight restaurants with seven Mexican food locations in the Southeast area. Along with Ernie and Eva, six of their eight children are involved in the restaurants.

Envision colorful plates full of delicious Mexican food, your traditional Mexican music in the background and the table surrounded by great friends. That is exactly what you can expect each time you enter any of  Serrano’s restaurants. Serrano’s uses only the freshest foods, direct from our growers in Queen Creek and Willcox, Arizona. If you are looking to fill your belly with tasty, traditional Mexican food, this is your one stop spot!
