The Stockyards - Phoenix
There's so much history beyond the opulent, copper doors of The Stockyards since its humble beginnings in the late 1940s. Once adjacent to the largest feedlot in the world, the restaurant is a living history museum that documents Arizona's cattle industry with historical photos and a Western Art collection.
Start your experience in the 1889 Saloon where you will find a solid mahogany hand carved bar, crystal chandeliers, and walls adorned with original murals that were painted in the 1950s. There's also a special saloon menu of shaved prime rib sliders, wild boar and venison sausages, and old fashioned buttermilk onion rings.
The Stockyards' dining room menu specializes in hand-cut aged steaks and prime rib, but also wild game, seafood, poultry and pork. The generous side come separately, with offering such as whiskey sweet potato mash, creamed spinach and cowboy beans.
