Restaurants in Arizona

Arizona is the home of cowboy cuisine. The best restaurants in Arizona serve something unique. If you would like a gourmet departure from the standard old west palette, the wine growing area of Sonoita and the town of Bisbee serve up more gourmet fare. Mexican food and Tex-Mex rounds out the eclectic character of Arizona’s menu.

For a taste of the frontier, Arizona restaurants have something to offer. One option is the Steak Out Restaurant and Saloon. The frontier-inspired design and weathered-wood exterior bring the Old West to life in this setting. Toast your delectable margueritas to the twang of country music. The restaurant serves up cowboy fare including mesquite-grilled steaks, ribs, chicken, and fish to help round out the menu.

For an authentic taste of Mexican cuisine, try La Fonda. This tortilla factory opened in 1940. It features an array of traditional Mexican specialties such as carne asada, pollo asado, and chile rellenos. All of the sauces, marinades and tortillas are made fresh on the premises. There are also homemade desserts, such as fried ice cream.

For an aesthetic respite from the Arizona heat, stop in at the Sanguinetti House Museum for a bite. Restaurants in Arizona truly have a lot to offer.
