While visiting the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum recently, my husband and I visited the Ironwood Terraces Restaurant. We opted to order at the counter and both decided on the grilled chicken breast sandwich with prickly pear plum sauce. Hey, we are in the desert, how can we resist? We also shared an order of onion rings. They were a little busy and we had to wait a few minutes for our food but they told us that up front. We watched as they prepared it and they were very efficient.
We chose a table in an open area and observed the interesting light fixtures that represented insects. There was also a beautiful shrub in a large pot. There was an outdoor seating area but it was a bit chilly that day so we stayed in doors. Next door to the restaurant is a nice gift shop.
The chicken sandwiches were moist, not over cooked as is often the case, and the sauce was sweet and delicious! My husband thought there was a little too much sauce on his because it made it a little messy but I like extra sauce. The onion rings were very good as well.
The service was good; it is self service, cafeteria style. The place was very clean and I noticed that the cashiers were constantly cleaning the tables. I went to the restroom and it was clean as well.
