Draft Brews, Mexican Street Corn, and The Royale at the New Grande Stand in Scottsdale

The Stand opened its second location in May in a strip mall near Scottsdale Road and Shea Boulevard, just next to the Harkins Shea 14 movie theater. The new space — which once famously housed Amy's Baking Company — retains a casual vibe, with a bar lining the front wall, and a scattering of tables filling the bright space. In addition to table service, the new location also has a full bar with a strong selection of Arizona craft brews on draft.

The burger side of the menu has remained largely unchanged from the original location on Indian School, with just two options: The Standard, featuring house-ground beef, lettuce, tomato, onion, dill pickle, and Stand sauce ($7, or $7.50 with cheese) and The Royale, a double patty stacked with cheese, guacamole, jalapenos, bacon, and caramelized onions ($11.85). French fries run you an extra $3.45 and Stand sauce to go with them is $.50. 

On our visit, the Sonoran hot dog stole the show, the thick beef link smothered in bacon, beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, cheese, and mayonnaise on a griddled-crisp bun ($8.85).

The new Mexican offerings include a lineup of of tacos, charro beans, and a very good street corn lathered in mayo and cheese with a wedge of lime on the side ($4.35).

You'll notice that the prices are a little higher at this location than at the original Stand, but with the higher price tag comes table service and a full bar, making it a nice option for getting your Stand fix in a more refined setting.

The Grande Stand is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
