After you’ve adventured through Jerome, taking in the sites and history of this sleepy mining town, it will be time for an afternoon pick-me-up. Don’t worry. We’ve got a bunch of recommendations for the best spots in town to eat!
You may find spooky rumors on your tours around town that Jerome is haunted. Stories of haunted hotels, mansions, and other previously abandoned buildings are endless, and, as with most ghost towns, Jerome capitalizes on the thrill of this with their guests.
This brings us to our first restaurant stop. The good food will be just as thrilling as the ghost stories awaiting your arrival.
Top 3 Restaurants in Jerome the Ghosts are Raving About
- Haunted Hamburger: Many years ago, when Michelle and Eric Jurisin obtained the building now home to this hamburger stop, testimonies of spooky activity sprouted up from the construction workers renovating the place. Hammers were misplaced, disappearing and reappearing. Doors slammed closed, even when windows had been sealed off. Later on, there were even claims of cans flying off the shelves as well as disturbance to the hot water. You be the judge! A trip to this fun hamburger grille is entertaining and delicious! You’ll find numerous burgers on the menu along with chicken, ribs, and other tasty options!
- Asylum Restaurant: Continuing in our spooky feast journey, we move along to Asylum Restaurant. The spook-factor is apparent due to the location of this dinner stop. Located within the Jerome Grand Hotel, this restaurant was formerly a hospital. Now rumored to be haunted by the ghosts of patients past, the entertainment factor matches the award-winning meals! You’ll find an array of gourmet food alongside a lengthy wine list.
- Bobby D’s: Enjoy delicious barbeque from the oldest operating dining restaurant in the state of Arizona. Established back in 1899, this kitchen was first home to a Chinese restaurant, owned by Charley Hong, an entrepreneur in the area who wore many hats! Beginning in 2011, Bobby D and his sister took over, transforming the restaurant into a BBQ house! Sweet and tangy smells waft through the streets, welcoming guests to come and enjoy the quality ingredients. Bobby D’s takes pride in their home-cooked recipes, all meats and sauces made in house. Try it out!
