Rustler’s Roost Steakhouse
When it comes to Rustler’s Roost, the only question you have to ask is if you’re ready for some rattlesnake. Yes, authentic rattlesnake is on the appetizer menu.

“Nestled in the South Mountain buttes, Ruster’s Rooste is the premier place to bring folks who want to experience an old-time Arizona steakhouse vibe. It’s family-friendly, there’s a tin slide for the little rascals to play on, and the general store inside has just enough cowboy kitsch to impress your Midwestern relatives who don’t know a glass scorpion paperweight from shinola. Get duded up in your best Western duds, order up a frosty longneck, and listen to the live country music with an unrivaled view of the twinkling lights of civilization below. CHO” – Phoenix New Times
“For large group celebrations with a Western flair, there’s Rustler’s Rooste. This cowboy steakhouse offers great city views, communal seating and a festive, family-friendly ambiance. Plus, the cowboy dinner banquet has enough food to feed a small army of steak-lovers.” USA TODAY 10Best
Rustler’s Rooste is likely the most carefree cowboy bar you’ll ever visit. The massive restaurant offers steak dinners, fish options, ribs, and rattle snake, plus, every table gets a hearty post-dinner serving of cotton candy. Inside the restaurant, you can wander around two stories and slide down the famous slide. Outside, you can hang out on the balcony, where you can catch a nice view of Arizona’s mountains and — if you time it right — a breathtaking sunset. It’s a family friendly spot, and can be reserved for private parties or receptions. The saloon opens at 4 p.m. and stays open late; the steakhouse serves from 5 to 10 p.m. Oh, and don’t forget to say “Hi” to Horney the Bull at some point while you’re there. You can’t miss him. – Phoenix New Times
