“It’s incredibly rewarding to see Dirtbags grow beyond Tucson,” says Gary Welch, owner of the Tucson location. “We’ve been a staple for generations of students and locals, and continuing that legacy in Phoenix means we can share our tradition with even more people. I’m proud to see the brand expand while maintaining the spirit and atmosphere that makes Dirtbags special.” 

Dirtbags transcends multiple generations. Every week, the Tucson location is visited by former “Baggers” who return to reminisce about their college years, find their favorite license plate behind the bar, or introduce their children to the staff. 

“We are incredibly excited to bring that Dirtbags vibe to Phoenix,” said Scott Hibler, owner of Dirtbags Phoenix. “The Tucson location has been a cornerstone for fun and camaraderie, and we can’t wait to create the same memorable experiences for the people of Phoenix. We’ve kept some of our classic menu items while also introducing new options to cater to the diverse tastes of this vibrant city.”

The bar is known for great drinks and lively atmosphere, but at the center of everything is our hearty food menu. Not just your typical bar fare, Dirtbags is widely known for huge sandwiches, juicy burgers, and healthy options. Or, if you’re just looking for something to snack on, the munchies menu can’t be beat. Whether you’re just dropping by for a daily lunch special, getting a big meal before the big game, or just getting that late-night food fix, Dirtbags will have what you’re looking for. 

The new Dirtbags is located at 4801 E Indian School Road, Phoenix and is set to open its doors in mid-August. To stay updated on the latest news and opening details, follow the Phoenix location on Instagram at @dirtbags_phoenix or visit dirtbagsphx.com today.
