Located in Chandler.
The original location of Majerle's Sports Grill is in downtown Phoenix, but the one in Chandler is newer with 18 TVs, and outdoor lounge, and good food. Additional locations are in Goodyear (West Valley) Scottsdale and Flagstaff. Local sports hero Dan Majerle (pronounced mahr-lee), formerly with the Phoenix Suns, owns this Arizona chain. My favorite lunch at Majerle's: either Cobb Salad or boneless wings.
