We are excited to open for limited capacity dine-in so we can begin to serve you again. You may notice some changes in how we operate our restaurants as we are taking precautions to ensure you, our guests, and staff feel comfortable and safe. For those who wish to dine with us at-home, we will continue to offer curbside pick-up and delivery options at all Fox Restaurant Concept locations.

Culinary Dropout is a place where food and music are life. Join us at happy hour for ice cold beer and our famous soft pretzels with provolone fondue. At dinner, a signature cocktail and slow braised 36-hour pork ribs are a perfect pair. While you and your crew enjoy damn good food & drinks, a local band plays live for great vibes. Come hang out and stay a while.

Rating service lower due to mixup on who was assigned to our table and having to flag someone down for service. Server was apologetic and sweet so I understand mistakes happen. Pretzel
bites with fondue cheese is good. I do wish there were more healthy options on the menu and less salt used.

Don’t recommend the French Dip. Meat was dry and too much bread. Great atmosphere and tables had plenty of space between them.

Quick and friendly service. We had the fried chicken and it was overdone. Still good but not why we go there.

The food was not as good as it was a week ago. The tomatoes were a weird red color and the time to get our food was longer than usual. I had the steak salad and it just tasted funny. I did not say anything at 1/2 of it and was good. Never offered dessert and my drink was filled somewhat regularly but once we got the food i had to ask.

It seems that most places are struggling with how to operate at diminished capacity. We waited quite a long time after we sat down for initial server contact and then waited almost 40 mins before someone took our order. Food is always good but struggling with service even at diminished capacity.

My parents were visiting us from California and every time they come we try to bring them to unique Arizona restaurants. We all really enjoyed our food and the service was great minus the food taking a little long (wouldn’t have been a problem but we had to be out by 8pm due to the curfew)
We love it there and will continue to come back.

We were visiting from Out of town and saw this place on the way to dining at a place nearby. Great service and good food! The rating on the noise level and ambiance was due to protesters outside...it was pretty loud! However we will definitely recommend this place to people traveling to the area.

You would never suspect they had pared down the number of tables. It looked awesome and the staff took such good care of us. Of course everyone enjoyed their meal, especially since it had been a while since we could go there. Everything was as good as we remembered. Yummy meatloaf!!

I had heard this place was awesome from my daughter. I was so disappointed with the new menu. As a healthcare provider, I know masks are not necessary for general use. I know you’re just trying to help, but staff wearing masks does not create a welcoming atmosphere. It’s also difficult at times to understand what is being said when someone is wearing a mask.

I made reservations and specifically asked for inside. We arrived, our table was not quite ready and I again reminded them of being seated inside. . When the table was ready they attempted to put usoutside. I objected and they said it would be another 15 or more minutes. We said ok. During that time at least 2 other parties came up and requested inside and the hostess tried to seat them outside. Also the person who was entertainment was very good but so loud we could not visit. We were on the opposite side of the restaurant. Fortunately our food was good. We’ve eaten there many times so the experience was disappointing. I’m assuming the “new normal” is still challenging.
