Food at the Gila
Oct 2021
This review isn't specific for the Gila Arena, which I've been to a few times for hockey, the arena is great. This is for anyone planning to buy food while they are at an event.

I went to the Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers location in the Gila Arena while I was at the Coyotes game and ordered the All American Burger as I was craving a cheeseburger. I am not from the USA but I visit about once or twice a year. One of the things I love about visiting America, is the American burger. And this was a monumental atrocity. Firstly I had to pay 15 AMERICAN dollars for it. The bread was dry, the patty was tasteless, the tomato was soggy and the lettuce was old. It was one of the most disappointing things I've put in my mouth and believe me, I've put a lot in it. In short, it was probably the worst burger I have ever had and that includes a burger in Thailand with questionable meat.
Because even a week after eating it and telling every one I could about how bad it was, I feel like I should warn others. However if you're looking to overpay for a terrible burger, then this place is for you.

Good hockey arena.

Beautiful venue with excellent vendors, good food, convenient beverages. The people who apparently work for the arena are somewhat unpleasant to the paying guests. Rude, terse, and abrupt.

Good for hockey, not for music

Sound quality at the venue was beyond bad. There are some seriously bad reflections bouncing off of the upper section and ceiling that basically turns the entire show into a muddy mush of sound. Could barely even hear the performer speak normally in between songs. Given the extremely expensive price of the ticket, I would expect good sound quality at a bare minimum. I would not recommend seeing a concert at this venue, which was clearly not designed for musical performances.

This is the second time I have been here. First was for business in a suite for a Coyotes game. They won so that was cool!!! Very nice suite. Clean, Good staff, comfy seats and food was good as well. That was May 2021. June of 2021we went back with friends for the UGC 263 event. Best event I have ever been to! Done right in all ways!! Big thanks to Shane, Jared, and Andy for always taking care of us when we are in town. We will be back to see you guys soon. We will keep traveling to see events at this arena!!! Keep up the good work!!!!

I went to see the Eagles. Beyond excited to see them again. The staff was selective on the people permitted to snap photos. Some staff members were sweet, yet not sweet enough to my recommendation to view anything here.

This venue was close enough to our hotel we were able to walk. The route we took, put us right by our section!! Our section was close to bathroom and snack bar. The venue was clean and the staff was super friendly and helpful.

Excellent event center. Took Uber from hotel to arena. No problems encountered. Would certainly go again but have to spend night up there it is too far from home.

Great arena!
Feb 2020
My wife and I were in Phoenix for a work conference and I convinced her to go to the Coyotes game skipping a group dinner (priorities) Arena was awesome!! good food, great sound, great view, huge video boards, but it was cold as hell in there. My wife ended up buying a blanket just to stay warm. The people that sat behind us were from Chicago and they were all bundled up with gloves and everything and said that is the norm for this arena. So, if you go to a hockey game dress warmer that you think you will need to :)

I always love coming to this place. You can't beat the overall atmosphere. We saw Blake Shelton and Friends. The sound quality and screen viewing was fantastic. And they really have their act together how they get you out of the parking lots.
