CK’s Tavern and Grill is an award-winning sports bar with a variety of foods sure to please even the pickiest eater. CK’s has won the Best Wings award, Best Happy Hour award, and Best Place to Watch the Game award multiple years in a row. They are even Ahwatukee’s Business of the Year. CK’s is rated four out of five stars on Yelp and four and a half out of five stars on TripAdvisor and Google Reviews.

Located off of Chandler Boulevard, it is only a few miles from Horizon Honors, making it a popular and tasty celebration dinner.

I typically order the Boneless Wings or the Kids’ Chicken Tenders tossed in medium buffalo sauce with their amazing thick cut fries. It has never disappointed, as the chefs are very good at what they do. The chicken to breading ratio is perfect for my taste, and many others’ as well. Another good menu item is the Bleu Burger, although it could use a bit more bleu cheese. The prices are reasonable; about $5 for a Kids’ Meal and Boneless Wings for $7. Our total bill is usually about $25 for four people.

If there is a wait, it’s typically 5 to 15 minutes, and that’s on a busy night. I would recommend going Sunday through Thursday. The food usually comes out in 15 to 20 minutes, which is fairly quick for a sit-down restaurant.

All-in-all, I would highly recommend CK’s to anybody because of their homey atmosphere, good food, and great, fast service.
