Grandparents Eat FREE at Old Spaghetti Factory

Celebrate Grandparents' Day at The Old Spaghetti Factory 


9/12 - 9/14 grandparents eat FREE at The Old Spaghetti Factory! One entree purchase required for each free grandparent meal, dine-in only, call ahead seating may not be available on those dates.

I have lived in AZ my entire life but hadn't ever been to The Old Spaghetti Factory until a few weeks ago.  There is a lot of history to the buildings that this restaurant is in & rumors it may even be haunted (if you're into that sort of thing).  


1418 North Central Avenue

We took a bunch of pictures when we went because there are so many cool lamp shades & there's even a trolley car in the center of the restaurant so you might want to bring along your camera.  


Don't forget that you can save gas money by riding the LIGHT RAIL which stops practically right in front of the restaurant.  The stop you'll want to get off at is McDowell & Central. 




Message from The Old Spaghetti Factory

For more than a generation, families and friends have been coming to The Old Spaghetti Factories, located across the United States, to enjoy our delicious food, charming atmosphere and friendly service. We invite you to dine amid fine antiques, collected from around the world, while savoring perfectly cooked pasta and spaghetti sauces, freshly made, using only the finest ingredients. The Old Spaghetti Factory has banquet rooms which are perfect for occasions like birthday parties, anniversaries, team sports events, company meetings, club gatherings, etc. Our rooms accommodate an intimate gathering of 25 up to a large party of 75 or more.

Editorial from Citysearch:

Whimsical antiques and decorative items--velvet armchairs, vintage-looking fringed lamps and booths made from iron bedsteads--fill the dining room. The OSF Classics menu offers spaghetti with a choice of mushroom sauce, rich meat sauce, browned butter and feta-like mizithra cheese sauce, and more. Other popular favorites are the baked lasagna--layers of noodles, tomato sauce and four kinds of cheese--and the fettuccine Alfredo.  

Key Points:

  • Family-Friendly Dining
  • Low-Carb Options
  • Banquet Rooms

  • The kids' menu includes smaller-portioned versions of spaghetti dishes, as well as macaroni and cheese and grilled cheese.
