We had dinner at the Stockyards our first night in Phoenix last week. It has been a local institution since 1947 and is just the kind of classic steak house I like to seek out and enjoy. It is located where giant feedlots once existed, though the stockyards are long gone. The restaurant has a western and ranching theme with lots of old photos and artwork throughout.
The food is very good, and reasonably priced. I enjoyed prime rib which is available in 3 sized portions along with a delicious fresh salad, baked potato and a side order of "cowboy beans" in a tangy sauce with cilantro - unique. It was not the #1 prime rib I have ever had, but was delicious. My wife had ruby red trout from Idaho. She really liked it and thought it was very fresh. We had a bottle of St, Francis Red Zinfandel, which at $50.00 was a bit steep, but loved it.Our waiter was a native of Phoenix and had worked at Stockyards for many years. Good person and good waiter and we enjoyed his banter. All in all, a really good dinner.
