Here are a few ides to help you explore Miami-Globe.
Soda Pops Old Fashioned Soda Fountain
Soda Pops is a newly established restaurant on Sullivan Street in Downtown Miami, Arizona. The business is designed as a replica of an early 1920’s soda fountain that was found mainly in pharmacies. The classic menu includes old fashioned sodas, fresh made pies, ice cream cones, cookies and more. Soda Pops is open from 12-5:00 on Fridays and 11-5:00 on Sat and Sunday’s.

Guayo’s El Rey
Guayo’s El Rey on Sullivan Street in Downtown Miami is open every day of the week except for Wednesdays from 11am to 9pm. The menu includes a wide array of Mexican food as well as some American classics such as hamburgers and their famous steak sandwich. Every patron that sits at a table is given a free bowl of chips and salsa to devour while you make your order selection. As far as beverages are concerned; Pepsi is served in a chilled can, the iced tea includes free refills and margaritas are offered frozen or on ice. There are several numbered items on the menu that offer you a variety of Mexican food on each plate. The Palmer family special is the #6 while my wife prefers a chicken taco with a side of beans.
