PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) If you like spice, you’re going to love this happy hour spot! Carlsbad Tavern in Scottsdale has happy hour seven days a week from 2 to 6 p.m., which includes a bunch of great items that come with a kick!

Be sure to check out their Ribeye quesadilla with sautéed onions, mixed peppers, mushrooms, and jalapeño jack cheese served on a bed of black beans for $13.
