PERFECT :)Flag review
I lived in Arizona for 6 years and LOVED IT! I got married at The Rustler's Rooste on June 6, 2008 and EVERYTHING was PERFECT! The food, the atmosphere, the INCREDIBLE view of Phoenix and the sunset. For the kids there is a live bull out front and a REALLY COOL SLIDING BOARD inside!!!

I arrived with my three year old asleep in her car seat. She was probably out for the night. I promptly woke her up and after passing a rather large bull we entered the cave. A few more turns and we entered the restaurant on the second floor. At this point, we were given the choice of slide or stairs down to the dining area. I parted ways with my daughter at this point.

This time, a little different...Let the sawdust fly! Picture this. South Mountain. Covered in careening white mini vans and large American cars. Children. Everywhere. Like Children of the Corn. Octogenarians with walkers complete with two yellow tennis balls. Parents scrambling to keep their brood in order. Teenagers glued to their smart phones, completely una...
An interesting place to go. Cowboy theme all the way here! Beautiful settings around the structures around the outside of the restaurant. They have a smelly bull outside that looks cute and pointy. The entrance has quite an incline when you get inside. There is an option to go down the slide but it is mobbed by kids going down it and then climbing right back up the stairs. You will have to stake your claim because that line is fierce! :) The prime rib was good and the Melon Margarita was better then good. The Beef Nachos were AWESOME. I would get that for my meal and not miss a thing. The band that was playing was a great older country band that had people dancing. It was a relaxing country, not the put on s...
