Famous 48 (, previously in Old Town Scottsdale offering plentiful and delicious comfort food, is moving north on Scottsdale Road and assumes a larger footprint at The Shops Gainey Village, 8989 N Scottsdale Rd #608, Scottsdale, AZ 85253.

“We are happy to be relocating Famous 48 to beautiful Gainey Village and know the area is filled with customers who eat out often and want comfort food in a casual yet stylish atmosphere featuring multiple screens for the best sports viewing in the area. We pride ourselves on delivering the best from our scratch kitchen and Famous 48 is that mix of great surroundings with really good food. We’re looking forward to serving the neighborhood!”
