This is a fun and funky place with a limited, but good menu. I had the bone-in ribeye, which is my favorite cut of cow and it was well prepared, hot and cooked just right--more importantly, just like I asked for it. Service was a...More

Well, if you’re a normal person who doesn’t need the ritz and glitz for eating your beef. It’s only a 20 minute drive. The steaks were great at a place that has a little of the pre-70s Tucson. Yeah, it’s divey, but you can watch...More

Definitely a cool ambiance. The wait staff was attentive and really nice. I ordered the Bone-in Ribeye. The steak came with salad, salsa, beans, and bread. It was okay? The steak though, holy cow! (See what I did there?!) when the waitress brought the steak...More

Very eclectic and interesting. Old Cowboy town feel. Great service. Salmon and ribs were good. Dessert was nice. Smaller portions than expected. Didn't expect Salmon to be served in aluminum foil. I'm sure the steaks are great. They smelled great cooking outside.

It was awhile back and because of me experience I will not go back. Expensive and low quality streak, small baked potato, bowl of beans to share with the table. Dog in dining area, bench seating terrible uncomfortable.

If you want a melt in your mouth steak, this is the place to be!! Nothing fancy, very minimal & laid back. Great beans, salsa & garlic toast!

Great feeling from the time we arrived. Happy hour was just the start. The food was delicious. My wife had the petite steak and I had the boneless ribeye. Both done perfectly. The sides were tasty. Service was topnotch. Had been awhile since we had...More
