We try to eat at The Stockyards restaurant everytime we are in Phoenix. It is near our hotel at Hampton Inn North and the hotel shuttle can take you there in 10 minutes. The ambiance of The Stockyards has the feel of the old West. Booths are named after famous people who ate at the booth repeating times. We especially enjoyed being at the John Wayne booth on our first experience. The steak is the specialty but everything we have tried is great and cooked to perfection. The meal is plentiful and the price is not too expensive. The bread is delicious that is served warm before the meal. The waiters are attentive and aim to please. If you want to mix and match food items such as rice, vegetables or potato, our waiter said "if it is in the restaurant then you can have it"! We especially like Bob who has waited on us twice. The manager is very friendly too.
