April Restaurant Openings and Closings in Metro Phoenix
We'll always remember April as the month we said adios to every single Baja Fresh in the Valley. But at least we welcomed quite a few new friends to ease the pain.

- Mr. Pizza in Mesa
"Mr. Pizza, a locally owned shop on 2706 East University Drive, opened at the beginning of April. It makes its own dough. It makes its own sauce. And if you're a Mesa-ite who's looking to have your pie brought right to the front door, Mr. Pizza delivers within a three-mile radius."
And if you want to see the menu, we've got that too.
- Tempe's Front Porch in Tempe
