“Tourist Must”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

The steaks are average at best. This is definitely a place to take tourist from out of state especially from the east they get a big kick out of the "Western" ambiance.

“Better than when I was here as a kid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

After all these years I still remember the name. I remembered low picnic tables out in the desert outside with one or two big pits that the cooks/chefs threw our steaks in to cook.They were huge. They had a little saloon there with the cut-off ties hanging from the walls, including President John Kennedy's. Because you are not to be dressed up or they will cut your tie off. This was a popular place back then. Now no outside tables or pits. The little saloon is huge like the steaks and includes the inside resturant. They have a little town right out the doors with shops etc. and behind tall fences there are bleechers to sit to watch the shoot out in the fake city of props. The cowboys/girl though are real stuntmen. Food was great. We were with Senior group so it was included with our vacation package.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

If you visit Tucson and like steak, you *must* go to Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse! They only have 1 boneless steak, but their Cowboy (T-bone) steak is just absolutely delicious!
The restaurant itself looks great, it's clean, staff is very nice. As for the price, you pay ~$20 for a (huge) T-bone steak, it's not cheap, but it's worth the price.
It can get quite busy, so you probably don't want to visit at peak times.

“Here's The Beef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Had an early dinner here on a Saturday night and had no wait!!! The interior has an Old West atmosphere. Our waiter "Cactus Jack" was an amiable young man who although very busy , gave us his undivided attention and happily answered all our questions. We ordered frozen margaritas that were wonderful but the star of the night was our rib eye steaks. They were cooked to perfection and so tasty. We probably embarrassed ourselves by picking them up to chew on the bones but we had no shame. They were awesome.Our salads were very fresh and our side of beans was plentiful. The only minor complaint was the bread......it looked and tasted like a thick slab of WonderBread. We were hoping for some good sourdough or cornbread instead. The place is friendly and loud and can become more raucous if a tie is being cut off a patron and mounted on the wall. jack remembered that one of our party was celebrating a birthday and although we were too full for dessert, he presented her with a dish of ice cream with a candle on it and the led the other patrons in a chorus of "Happy Birthday". Afterwards we strolled the grounds and there was alot to see and do. A nice evening all the way around.

“Great food, great price, great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Went to celebrate a birthday. Food was awesome, and much better than expected considering the very reasonable price. Enthusiastic service, and yes they will cut your tie off. A magician visited the table and entertained the kids with some good illusions. This restaurant is in a location ripe for photos and being a photographer I loved it. Has a carousel and another ride for kids as well as shops and live entertainment.
