The West Valley’s growth knows no bounds, with a tapestry of must-try hot spots springing to life. The latest gem to grace our presence? The illustrious Sugar Factory, within the bustling retail and dining nexus of Westgate.

While Sugar Factory American Brasserie, its official name, has spread its sweetness in several spots nationwide and boasts five international outposts, its Westgate location promises to uphold the brand’s reputation. Within, nearly 130 guests can relish the eatery’s offerings, with the Pink Private Dining Room beckoning for special occasions. As cooler weather arrives in the Valley, alfresco seating beckons the diners.

From tantalizing starters and robust mains, to their drool-worthy desserts, this restaurant promises an experience where satiety meets spectacle. Dive into their legendary monster burgers, indulgent sharable plates, and eye-popping, Instagram-worthy dishes.

For those who are looking to grab a cocktail, the restaurant offers a huge assortment of adult-beverage options, many of which were designed by celebrities such as Kevin Hart, Bruno Mars, Nick Jonas, Pitbull, and more. There are also mocktail versions that are celebrity-inspired drinks, great options for the younger guests and those who prefer non-alcoholic options.

Be sure to come hungry when you visit The Sugar Factory. Food options include everything from soups and salads, to loaded fries and more. One of the more popular dishes on the menu is their signature rainbow sliders, that are not only great to look at but are delicious to boot.

This popular dining experience is also known for its outrageous milkshakes. These aren’t your ordinary milkshake options. Some come with a giant piece of cake on top, or perhaps an ice cream sandwich, or even some fried goodies such as Oreos. And if the gigantic shakes weren’t enough, there are other dessert options including their famous King Kong sundae, which features 24 scoops of ice cream, walnuts, cakes, sprinkles, M&M’s, four waffle cones, three unicorn lollipops, pretzels, caramel, chocolate and strawberry sauces, a whole can of whipped cream, and more.

Drop by Sugar Factory seven days a week. They open their doors at 11 a.m. from Monday to Friday and at 10 a.m. during weekends. Find them at 9375 W. Coyotes Blvd., in Glendale. For reservations and more, visit
