Shopping and Dining

From small family-owned boutiques to large scale superstores, Queen Creek has a number of shopping centers, including our historic Town Center area. Queen Creek is a “shop local” community. When residents shop Queen Creek businesses, they help pay for town programs and services such as streets, parks, recreation programs and public safety services.

Supporting local businesses strengthens Queen Creek’s economic base, encourages entrepreneurship and keeps sales tax dollars in the community. With the variety of new retail and restaurant options available, shopping Queen Creek has never been easier.

Queen Creek offers a variety of shopping options, including retail and dining options at Queen Creek Marketplace, QC District, the Cornerstone at Queen Creek, Power Marketplace and Queen Creek Village. One of Arizona’s newest shopping malls, San Tan Village, is just 15 minutes northwest of town.

Help invest in your community and support neighborhood businesses by staying in Queen Creek to make your gift and meal purchases. It pays to shop local.

Queen Creek Marketplace
Queen Creek Marketplace has amassed a brilliant collection of boutiques, national retail anchors, unique eateries and traditional restaurants. For a quick bite, a special occasion, a gallon of milk or an afternoon of retail therapy, the marketplace delivers.

Queen Creek District
Currently under construction, the QC District will be built in two phases. Phase I is currently under construction and will encompass 16 acres of retail and dining options. Phase II will be a four-acre development slated to include either an entertainment district or high density, upscale multi-family mixed-use residential-retail community that will be developed at a later date.

Historic Dining

Rudy’s Restaurant
Family owned and operated, warm, friendly and inviting, Rudy’s Restaurant offers traditional old Mexican fare and classic American food.

Perfect for your next family gathering or just a quiet dinner for two, Rudy’s is the place for high-quality food and fast, friendly service. Rudy’s treats you the way you want to be treated.

QC Café
The Queen Creek Cafe has been a local favorite since 1995; owners Larry and Debbie Hoel boast over 40 years of experience in the restaurant and lounge industry. Debbie, an Arizona native, and Larry, who relocated from New Jersey, believe they have found the perfect blend of east-meets-west dinning.

Debbie loves her desserts and Larry loves his meat and potatoes, so it’s not a surprise that the meatloaf, soup and chili con carne have to be homemade. Drink ice cold draft beer, your favorite liquor, thick Columbian coffee or freshly brewed iced tea while watching your favorite hometown ball team in the restaurant or lounge. Enjoy a real homestyle meal without the high prices, in a clean and friendly environment at the Q.C..
