Rustler's Rooste was founded in 1971 and is still family owned and operated. The legend goes that the original site, atop a butte in the foothills of South Mountain, was a hideout for cattle rustlers. Today it is firmly established as the valley’s highest and brightest beacon of the total cowboy western experience. We are located 10 minutes downtown Phoenix, Tempe, Sky Harbor International Airport and 20 minutes from Scottsdale.
Rustler's Rooste has it all. Our critter out front, an enormous long horn steer named Horney greets you upon arrival. Open the door and enter part of an old mine shaft to the top floor to our Mountaintop Saloon. Saunter over the indoor waterfall and take our Famous “Tin” Slide into the dining room. (for the faint of heart, there’s a staircase). Enjoy the live country western band and our strolling cardshark/magician. The building is bordered on the north side by plate glass windows so there is a view form every seat in the house.
The all wood walls echo with history and are full of things from different points in time of this area and the west in general. Many ranchers brought their brands and branded the walls. All this with the muted comfort of sawdust covered floors and the aroma of mesquite grilling promises the elusive cowboy experience.
Rustler's Rooste serves the finest steaks, ribs, chicken and seafood. Appetizers are different and delicious. (Don’t worry - we’ve got rattlesnake). Our desserts will tempt you. We serve quality cocktails, wine and, of course, a variety of your favorite beers. Better come hungry.
