Looking to fill out your lineup of go-to takeout food in Tempe? RISE on Apache is here to help. Take a spin through these six spots close to home and close to the Arizona State University campus.

Thai Basil

Given that it’s so close to RISE on Apache (less than a quarter-mile away), Thai Basil might already be in your takeout rotation. If it’s not, what are you waiting for? This popular spot on South Rural Road offers all the Thai staples – craveable curries, palate-pleasing pad thai, delicious drunken noodles, and satisfying spring rolls.

Original ChopShop

Who says takeout can’t be healthy? Original ChopShop on East University Drive, just a mile and a half from RISE, specializes in food that is both flavorful and nutritious.

When you need your burger fix, look no further than The ChuckBox. This popular spot on East University Drive serves mesquite-broiled goodness and is less than 2 miles from RISE. Make sure to bring cash! 

Snooze, an A.M. Eatery

We had to include at least one breakfast spot on this list. Snooze on South College Avenue (less than 2 miles from RISE) is a worthy choice. This growing chain restaurant puts a creative spin on traditional breakfast favorites. You’ll find everything from breakfast tacos and pot pie to pancakes topped with all sorts of sweet ingredients and loaded combo plates – all quirkily named.
