I hope you have a good appetite; this place serves all sorts of Beef, for the faint hearted there's a Cowgirl Steak, then for the healthier appetite there's the Cowboy and last for those with a ravenous appetite there's the Big Cowboy - I can recommend the latter as there's about 32 oz of pure beef, add a load potato...

I can't think of a single time when I would say the service was better than the food. However, this is that time. May Lilly, our server was friendly, timely and very helpful. The atmosphere was western, clean and comfortable. As for the food, I have mixed feelings about it as some parts of the meal were really good while... More

Busy venue with lots of western sideshows for children to enjoy. Restaurant was busy but easy to get a table as it's so big. Steaks were good but it's really mass produced. Steak, normal lettuce salad, cowboy beans and a jacket potato. Service was a bit impersonal and not that quick. Go for the experience.

As I live in Tucson, my family and I visit this little town often. The rides for the kids, the steak for the adults and the Pistaleros stunt show for the whole family. There is something for everyone! Don't forget the Silver Dollar Saloon! Fresh beer on tap and amazing drinks! And for some silly fun wear a tie! !!

Pinnacle Peak is part of a Tucson tourist attraction that is designed to be like the Old West in 1870 or so. It is a large, primarily steak house restaurant that also serves a good BBQ half chicken and a variety of appetizers. The steaks and ribs are usually pretty good and the prices are on the low range for... More

This place is a novelty. The food is good. I had the ribs and a salad. However, this is a place to go with groups and with the expectation to be entertained. Tie-wearers are labeled as "law breakers" and have their neckwear cutoff by their server and stapled to the wall or hung from the ceiling. We had about 35... More

Pinnacle Peak is one of Tucson's great traditions. Yes it's noisy, yes it's a little hokey, but the steaks are still great, and the prices are still within reason. It's our "go to" cowboy steak house for visitors.
