When it comes to Thanksgiving, most people like to play it safe when it comes to turkey. Not Phoenix’s longtime favorite Texaz Grill, though. Texaz Grill is taking what it’s known for (which is chicken-fried goodness), adding turkey to the mix, and creating a holiday treat you won’t want to pass up: Chicken-Fried Turkey. Available for four days only (Nov. 22 to 25), owner/head chef Steve Freidkin has dug deep into his recipe book of Texas-style comfort classics to create this unforgettable November special. It all starts with a heaping portion of seasoned and lightly breaded turkey that’s been deep fried—creating the combination of a crispy exterior and a fork-tender, moist interior. It is drizzled with slow-cooked, savory gravy, and paired with a side of traditional sweet potato mash smothered in its own sweet sauce and (dinner-only) served with bread and butter and salad.
The Texaz Grill November special is $8.50 for lunch or $12 for dinner. 6003 N. 16th St., Phoenix, 602.248.7827, http://texazgrill.com/.
