About this business
From Our Editors
Rustler’s Rooste has come a long way since its original location posed as a hideout for cattle ranchers in the 1970’s. Today, the family-owned restaurant resides in a two-story, 1,500-seat building nestled amid the Arizona Grand Resort. Here, diners can admire the distant city lights as they chow down on dinner meals of Western steakhouse fare that includes rattlesnake appetizers, family-style barbeque chicken, top sirloin steaks, and homemade bread pudding. Though dinner starts at 5 p.m., guests can head to the second floor lounge for happy hour cocktails and unobstructed views of the live music bands, such as The Peso Dollar Band, playing nightly on the main-level dance floor. And for those looking to make a quick escape to the dance floor, a built-in slide quickly sends riders zooming from the lounge to the dining room.
Rustler’s rustic décor, which also includes wagon wheel chandeliers and an outdoor patio with fire pit, gives the restaurant a true Western feel, which is why many choose to use its extensive space for weddings, banquets, and reunions for the guild of television cowboy actors.
