Iffin ur lookin' fer a bit o dat ole West sorta attitude...Rawhide, in Scottsdale, just North East of Phoenix is a great place for a family or anyone to feel that old West feeling. If ya drive further, much further East, to the Tucson area you can visit Tombstone and view an historical re-enactment of the OK Coral. At certain times they have live performers acting this out! Tombstone is a lot of fun for people of all ages, too!
North Scottsdale, out near the 4 Seasons Hotel at Reata Pass, an old Stage coach stop, is Greasewood Flats. Arguably the best Burger available at only $6 and that is with chili and cheese. Fantastic cowboy beans, pulled pork, chicken, nachos and salsa. Beers at $2 for domestic, little more for imports. Outdoor venue with 3 bars, tressle tables and benches, firepits around a dancefloor with live Country/Western/popular singer guitarist with about 5 CD's on the market. Best time, Thursday evening, more crowded Fri and Sat, bikers on Sunday. Rustic, great photo opportunities, wear jeans and shirts or anything casual.
