Best Old-Fashioned Steakhouse
Lil' Abner's Steak House
STAFF PICK: Talk about tradition--the grill at Lil' Abner's has probably cooked more real meat in its 55 years than all the McDonald's in Arizona combined. And the longest gig in musical history has to be Dean Armstrong's great western band, the Arizona Dancehands, who've been playing at Abner's since long before their temples went gray.
The patio provides a little outdoor ambiance. It was a whole
lot better before Charlie Keating's thugs clear-cut everything
in the desert within a mile or so; but you can change your perspective--and
your politics--by sitting on the opposite side of the patio, where
the vista of still more new homes signifies the end of an era...and
probably a longer wait for a table.
