Drive Thru & Go

by Mike Hunter


Federal Pizza

Most of us likely know curbside pick-up because of the signs that read, “Reserved parking for curb-side take-out orders only” at some local restaurants. But some local restaurants are offering drive-up as well. Here are some good eats with “pass thru” perks.

32 Shea

Gourmet hot spot with a drive-through is a rarity. That makes 32 Shea a stand-out. This quaint and hip restaurant offers the convenience of driving through to pick up sandwich, soup, salad or coffee. Call ahead for larger orders, but no need to step out of the car at this 32nd-Street-and-Shea joint.

Like its name, this healthy alternative to fast food is delicious and quick. With drive-throughs at both locations, this hot spot offers a menu that is organic and natural with some great takes on fast-food favorites. Lunch is popular, so get ready for a line (still fast and convenient).

2613 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale

1135 E. Apache Blvd., Tempe

Federal Pizza

Our pick for a great concept. This drive-through opportunity affords access to great pizza, a full Italian menu and even beer and wine. Open for lunch, with the promise by the staff that this is a quick option for a great on-the-go meal.
