An opening event was held on June 21 featuring remarks from Caesars and D-backs representatives, a first bite sampling of menu items and ceremonial first bets, as well as a donation of $20,000 by Caesars to the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.
“We’re extremely proud to bring Caesars Sportsbook and Guy Fieri’s Kitchen + Bar to Chase Field and Downtown Phoenix,” said Eric Hession, Co-President of Caesars Digital. “This destination provides sports bettors and non-sports bettors, locals and visitors alike, with an experience they can’t find anywhere else. Thank you to the Arizona Diamondbacks and Guy Fieri for making this possible.”
“What an incredible day for our fans, sports enthusiasts, guests and especially for our organization,” said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. “We are proud to partner with Caesars Entertainment and Guy Fieri, to bring a year-round first-class sportsbook, restaurant and event space to downtown Phoenix. Everything about this dynamic venue, from the food to the design to the service, has been meticulously planned for an unmatched guest experience.”
Bloc9 Architecture served as architect on the project in partnership with Borisoff Design Studio while The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company served as general contractor to create a venue that conveys the Caesars Sportsbook brand in a modern way through a lively and contemporary space fit for a Caesar.
The opening of Guy Fieri’s DTPHX Kitchen + Bar at Caesars Sportsbook marks the celebrity chef’s first-ever full-service restaurant in Arizona.

The menu also features a combination of new recipes and Fieri’s personal favorites from his other restaurants, including the world-famous Trash Can Nachos ($20) and award-winning Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheeseburger ($18). Other menu stand-outs include:
• Jalapeno Pig Poppers: andouille and cheese-stuffed jalapenos wrapped in maple bacon, and then smoked and glazed with bourbon brown sugar barbeque sauce ($18)
• Real Deal Dilly Wings: a dozen wings with dill pickle salt, garlic butter and buttermilk ranch ($16)
• Morgan’s Veggie Burger: Scratch-made with donkey sauce, pickles, onions, lettuce, tomato and crispy onions on a whole wheat bun ($16)

• Cheesecake Challenge: half of a New York-style marble cheesecake topped with potato chips, pretzels and hot fudge ($24)
“I’ve worked with the Caesars team for nearly a decade opening restaurants all over the country together. They are the best of the best,” said Fieri. “The idea of bringing this next-level restaurant concept to Arizona, a place where I have showcased more than 30 restaurants through ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives’ over the years, was a no-brainer for me. Thank you to the D-backs and Caesars for making it happen.”
