This casual, family-friendly spot is so well-known for its food and hospitality that it has been written up in the Houston (Texas) Chronicle . Steaks and slow-roasted prime rib are served by a friendly staff. Besides offering a good bet for Grade-A beef when you are in town, the menu includes chicken, ribs and seafood. A children's menu is also available. Rod's Special Margarita is the house specialty drink. Domino, the restaurant's bull mascot, is prevalent in the decor here, as are memorabilia and souvenirs from historic Route 66.
I went to Rod's Steak House with my girlfriend as part of a weekend trip to Williams on 12/16, and boy were we sorry. This blond haired waiter was all pissed off about something, cussing at the cashier, who obviously had difficulty with the English language. There was us and another table of 4 in the whole place, so I don't know what he was all stressed about or why the food took so long to arrive. When the Prime Rib arrived it was like rubber and my potato was over cooked. My girlfriend ordered the ribs and they weren't any better. What little meat there was on the bone, it was dried like beef jerky and the BBQ sauce was burned onto it. Needless to say, we only took a few bites and that was it. We ended up not paying for anything. This place needs to be shut down. Everything was horrible. I wish I would have read the reviews before going there. The sign should be changed from World Famous to World Infamous. As far as fine dining, maybe they mean for rats. That food is nowhere near worth the twenty dollars a plate they charge.
My family dined at Rod’s Steak House (of the damned) on December 18th 2007. There was only one server and he had a poor, unprofessional attitude. I should have realized an issue when there were only three tables filled during dinner hour. The rolls were stale, the coffee was cold, the soup was too salty. We ordered steaks and BBQ ribs. The ribs were dry, like they have been sitting under a heat lamp too long. My steak which was a top sirloin, was chewy, and the potatoes were overcooked. My three children had the chicken tenders - as that is their favorite. Yet they took a few bites and all said it was yucky and refused to eat any more even though they were hungry from the drive up from Surprise.
For the $20 a plate cost; I expected much higher standards than this. When I complained to the cashier, the waiter started cussing and then stormed off.
I have had better food and service from Denny’s - and I hate Denny’s.
Chef Ramsay, where are you?
Any traveler who visits Williams Arizona is best advised to eat at the McDonald’s or Jack in the Box in town then suffer at Rod’s.
We were not impressed with this place. The food was okay but overpriced for the cut's we got. Somewhat chewy too. Nice decor but a bit noisey. We ate there during our annual trek to ride the Polar Express.
My Godfather, my fiance and myself visit this restaurant on Aug 30th, 07 on the way down from the Grand Canyon Tour. The service was good but the steaks and the flounder (fish)were overcook. We told the waitress and no action taken. She just brought me the bill and since my companions did not want to talk to the supervisor (it looks that there was not supervisor on site) we paid the bill and left. For the price is not worth it. I will not recommend this place.
I just went to Rod's tonight with high expectations. We went early. We were seasted. There was ONE table of two already finishing their meal. We sat there with menus for 15 minutes with no one asking if we wanted a drink or even showing any interest in us at all. Another table of two was seated three tables away. They were approached by the SAME WAITER that seated us. Needless to say we got up and left. Three waiters stood around looking clueless. I could understand if the place was packed but there was no reason to ignore us. We are very generous tippers so whoever our waiter was supposed to be lost out. I will NEVER go back or recommend this establishment to anyone. I have no idea if the food would have been worth our staying and begging for service. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!
The steaks are the cheapest grade and poorly prepared. The prime rib is tough as shoe leather. Salad is brown iceberg lettuce, and the baked potatoes and green beans are over cooked. Lunches are better, but do not reccomend for dinner.
I tried this restaurant on 2 occasions. I find it to be too dark inside & cold. The first time my steak was full grissle. The second time I ordered it Med to Med well & it came burnt black. I saw the cook come out of the kitchen & his apron was absolutely filthy. I knew that I wouldn't ever eat there again.
