A Beefy Memory: Happy Anniversary to Arizona Landmark

Today’s Local First Arizona member spotlight is on The Stockyards Restaurant:

Occasionally, you'll stumble across that old Arizona flair regarded as the "Wild West." Take a scenic drive on State Route 85 in West Phoenix, and you'll get a sense of the agricultural and western landscape - grazing horses, cattle ranches, and acres of alfalfa, grass, or corn. It's enough to get you craving for a night on the range. Gather the family, pull those cowboy boots out from the back of your closet, and head over to Stockyards Steakhouse to take in some historic charm and feast on amazing prime rib and hand-cut steaks. This year, Stockyards is celebrating its 65th anniversary and has evolved from a favorite gathering place for cattlemen, bankers, and politicians to an Arizona Landmark. In 2004, a visionary team painstakingly restored and revitalized the restaurant, which was recently added to the City of Phoenix Historical Register for both its central role in Arizona's cattle industry and its relevant architectural style. For its 65th anniversary, the owners continued the revamp by restoring the original 1950s booths and the mahogany bar. Whether you enjoy a lunch meeting or an evening out with friends and family at Stockyards - it's a great way to celebrate Arizona's 100th birthday and feast on its corn-fed beef and "New West" cuisine that has kept this local favorite in business for 65 years.
