Batter up! Spring training season in Arizona started a few days ago, and restaurant deals are already in full “swing.” You may have seen our post with Visit Mesa Deals on hotels, attractions and eateries (there are three restaurants with deals on there), but we’ve put together a full list of restaurants offering specials all over the Valley. Some involve showing your same-day ticket stub and others are going on until spring training comes to a close. Enjoy!
Backyard Taco is offering a free chips and salsa appetizer throughout the month of March. All you need to do is to show your ticket stub from a spring training game. Backyard Taco has one location in Gilbert and two locations in Mesa; www.backyardtaco.com
