The Stockyards is one of the oldest Steakhouses in Arizona and has stayed true to its heritage by offering some of the best steak in the State. Its cozy and peaceful interior makes for an excellent dinner spot and they even have three private rooms if you’d like to reserve one for an event. They have a variety of steak cuts, but our favorite dish has to be the 24-ounce bone-in ribeye that comes with a soup or salad of the day and different sides such as parmesan roast potatoes or garlic whipped potatoes. Some other dinner favorites include scampi-style shrimp, tomahawk pork chop, roasted chicken, and bison meatloaf. Don’t knock it ’till you try it!!

Steakhouses with a real Texan grill don’t get much better than this one that opened in 1985, and the only thing that has changed since then is their original name, Lone Star Steak. Their recipes have been a hit for years, coupled with the homey feel of the restaurant, which has made it popular to date. Their Saturday special is the Steak Lin Sue, a 10 ounce NY Strip, grilled to order, topped with sautéed artichoke hearts and jumbo Gulf shrimp, covered with house made béarnaise sauce. They also have fried catfish, chicken fried steak, and delicious desserts such as pecan pie and peach cobbler.

Wren and Wolf is a great spot to take your special someone out for a nice meal. Start off with their bread service which never disappoints. They have some different options like the Kona roll with marcona almond pesto and the Nobel country loaf with whipped truffle butter. They’ve also got all kinds of small plates to choose from that you can share like their meatballs and grilled prawns. For dinner, go for the ribeye or the filet of beef tenderloin, both served with whipped parmesan potatoes and roasted baby carrots. For a great meal out, check this one out.

The Keg Steakhouses
21001 N Tatum Blvd, AZ 85050
The Keg is a dark and moody spot great for a night out with very comfortable seating. Their steak and lobster dish is simple yet delicious with garlic butter, sirloin, and jumbo shrimp. This is also one of the few steak spots that also offers vegetarian dishes, such as the meatloaf made with mushrooms, mashed cauliflower, chickpea, chipotle sauce, and breadcrumbs. The Billy Miner pie is a sure win when it comes to desserts.

The beautiful interior with brown and tan booths and tables gives a relaxed vibe to Durant’s restaurant, making it perfect for business meetings and dinner dates. The broiled fillet mignon with a side of roasted fingerling potatoes is a meal made with such precision it provides a burst of juices and flavor with each bite. Try at least one of their in-house desserts, like the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. Steakhouses should have a relaxed ambiance, and Durant’s has this covered.

There is a homely feel to this family-owned restaurant that was established in 1965. This neighborhood restaurant continues to attract new customers due to the high standards and quality of the food and the made-from-scratch sauces and soups.

Steakhouses with an Italian menu cannot surpass the delight that is Mancuso’s.

This family owned spot is sure to deliver time and time again.
