PHOENIX -- Arizona Restaurant Week kicks off this weekend, but before you throw out the diet and eat all the scrumptious food, we have a preview for you.

Last week Kaley O'Kelley went to check out Bootleggers, a new restaurant in Phoenix with a sampler plate for the yearly event.

Well I joined the folks over at Renegade by MOD in Scottsdale to taste the pork shoulder. This is all in conjunction with Arizona Restaurant Week.

"This is a really good opportunity for us to soft of explode on the culinary scene," Chef Michael O'Dowd.

The Arizona Restaurant Association proudly hosts this week of extravagant edibles to showcase the state's vibrant restaurant industry. This chef-powered event sets the stage for menus and dining trends for the fall and winter months and helps put Arizona on the map as a nationally known culinary destination.

Join us tomorrow {Friday, Sept. 20) on Good Morning Arizona as the two chefs throw down and go head to head. They will fire up some food and sling a few drinks to get your mouth watering for the weekend ARW kick-off.
