Be staying on base in Sierra Vista with son, wife & grand-kids. He's getting 10 days off. Daughter in law has grandparents in Phoenix. So we'll be anywhere from point A from B.
Tempe has a "Taste of Greece" April 30-May 2 which we're going to. But we need our "fix" between that time.

ipsedixit we are going to. I'm staying for a month. Son isn't coming back home after his service. Either staying there or Vegas. Or a year in Afghan making over $100 grand tax free. As far as the "Chicago" foods, yes I can get them everyday, I'm trying to find them for my son and his family. All we need is a White Castle and we're in business.

Thanks for the help so far. As far as the Greek food and more to the point as someone asked for. looking for: Baklava & Diples for desserts. Feta, Kasseri cheese to make Saganaki. Kalamata olives and Roditis wine. So a store to buy these items.

A restaurant that also serves the same items along with lamb. Got to have lamb....mmmm. I called a Greek church in Tucson & Phoenix. Both don't know of any Greek bakery.

Gino's East frozen pizza stinks. Anything frozen does. Also went to a Uno's Grill and was bad pizza. Called Uno's downtown Chicago which gave me another number. Short of it, those "outlet" restaurants have a totally different recipe than the two main rest. downtown. Maybe I'm asking the impossible here guys.

Visiting son for a month who's stationed at Fort Huachuca in Sierra Vista. From Chicago and we're half Greek/Polish. I've searched and searched and can't find a Greek bakery in Phoenix or Tucson. Is there any?
Also want to get deep dish pizza. A "REAL" Chicago deep dish. So can you guys help out with Greek and Chicago food. I know there's tons of people from Chicago who moved to Ariz because my Grandfather did and died there.
Thank You.
