Arizona PBS weekly restaurant review series Check, Please! Arizona is once more searching for a lineup of guests and local and independently owned Arizona restaurants.
Check, Please! began in Chicago, but expanded to other areas such as Arizona, San Francisco, and Miami.
On Check, Please! Arizona, Arizonans share their dining experiences at a round table with the host, James Beard award winner chef Robert McGrath.
