    What could be better than an ice-cold beer and some Mexican food for lunch or dinner? How about the feeling of sand beneath your feet on a comfy patio that hollers "tropical island paradise!" Read more

    Great Mexican food in Phoenix! Reasonably priced drinks, live music and an outdoor bar that makes you feel you're in the middle of the ocean--What more do you need?!?

    A sandy, misted haven for 20-something singles & we have to admit -- there's something sort of charming about sipping cheap beers (and the occasional shot of tequila) with our toes in the sand. Read more

    On Monday and you can get $3 Dos Equis, and $5 house margaritas from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sandbar will also have drink specials, live music, and DJs on Saturday and Sunday.

    Come out any day of the week for kick-ass happy hour deals like Ladies Night Wednesday! The appetizers are all half-off and are big enough to be a meal!!

    Live music on Wednesdays, great acoustic pair. They look like hippies but sing and play great, perfect for a Wednesday night.

    Service is hit-or-miss, at least on Friday evenings.. Group of friends and I went earlier in the year and got outstanding service.. Went again later in the year, 30+ minute wait in between rounds..

    Judging by the previous tips either they have either changed or cut staff. It's not that the food or staff was bad, but both times I have been here I have gotten cold food or someone at my table has.

    Everything about this place screams "overrated." The menu is rather limited and the nachos are awful. Wait staff is painful to look at. I've seen better in Wichita.

    SANDBAR DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU. They have the worst management and employees I have ever seen. Why would you want to go to a business that disrespects their customers? STAY AWAY FROM SANDBAR!
