“Excellent Prime Rib”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Ate here last week (May 2013) and though the Menu is limited the food is excellent. One of our group had gone to college in Tucson decades back and this place was a staple even back then it seems.
The Prime Rib was great and do get the Tamale Pie as the side! VERY well done! Haven't had Tamale Pie this good since I was a kid in Texas.
Service was excellent and friendly. It was crowded but we were seated right away.

“Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I read about this restaurant in a travel guide. While we were in Tucson, we decided to try it. The location was in the foothills of Tucson. A beautiful drive. The parking lot was crowded so we thought there might be a wait. We were seated immediately. The decor was western. The menu is small. We had ribs and a t-bone. Both were cooked to perfection. The salad had a delicious dressing, Honey italian. The salad was tossed at your table. The side dish we chose was the Tamale pie. I could have made a meal just off of that! The service was excellent. A great atmosphere with great food. I would eat there again.

“no surprises”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Fare priced average food and good service. A good idea to get there early for a table. Very busy place because the price is right.
