T-Bone Steak House
This place serves up cowboy-style steaks or chicken, broiled over mesquite and served with salad bar, cowboy beans and the ever-present bread and butter. Choose from beef cuts that include the immense 2-lb. porterhouse or a 'cowgirl'-sized 1-lb. T-bone steak. For the little tykes, there is a separate menu with choices of a strip steak, chicken or burger. Go ahead with your family to T-Bone Steak House and you are sure to have a good time.
Went to have a good steak and by gooly we did. This is the best steak we have had since moving here six months ago. The only place better is the Beef House in Covington Indiana, waitress and boss man both real friendly, good fast service and steaks were cooked exactly like we ordered, well done, no red and no burnt outside, excellent job guys!
We have been eating at the T-Bone Steak House for over 30 years. It is on the other side of town so we don't get there too often, but when we do it is always the best steak we have ever had. We were just there in September 2010 and both had the T-Bone steak, perfectly cooked, I might add. The bread was yummy and they threw in a baked potatoe, which was delicious also. The service was excellent, too. T-Bone Steak House is well worth the drive, plus the view is exceptional.
No Read This Before You Eat Here!
It is a case of don't believe everything you read.
A friend of mine suggested the place about a year ago, but since it is on the other side of town I really never had the chance to visit. I did not realize how far out it is. It is on the side of South Mountain about 2 miles south of Baseline road on 19th Ave in the middle of a dirt parking lot. That should have been our first clue about the sort of place it is. It is in the middle of what appears to be new home construction. In the front there is a huge wood burning grill. The tall hairy cook who manned the grill looked like a Marlboro Cowboy Model. He was very friendly greeting us and acting as if we had always been there. Seeing that I am in a wheelchair, he pointed us towards the handicap accessible entrances.
You enter from the north side unless you are in a wheelchair then there are doors on the east and west side. We entered the east side went through the ice room and a hall and ended up in the middle of the bar. It is evident that this used to be a house, which the bartender confirmed. I love these types of places; little hole in the wall Mom and Pop operations with no taint of mediocrity of the chain places.
The seating is picnic tables with benches and red checkered table clothes. The floors are covered with sawdust and the walls are solid rock.
The menu is simple. There were 4 or 5 steaks, a couple of fish offerings, pork chops and hamburgers. I ordered the New York charred rare, my partner ordered salmon and our companions ordered half chicken and filet.
We went to the salad bar, which had the basic salad along with a green bean salad. There were three dressings offered, croutons and a variety of crackers and bread sticks. Again very simple. The green bean salad seems to be just pepper, vinegar and onion with green beans. Very easy to make, but somehow, it works. We asked for tomato and the cook obliged us with some. It was a good hearty salad and it was unlimited so we could get more if we wanted to.
Just before our food arrived the bread and beans were delivered by a chubby busboy who seemed like he had better places to be, who quickly ran to sit back at the bar until someone else called upon him..
The bread is soft thick warm sliced wheat bread. In between the bread slices were the butter slices, which had melted just enough to be spreadable. The garlic toast was made with the same bread except it is slathered with garlic butter and topped with cheese and toasted. It was yummy decadent goodness at its best.
The steaks were cooked perfectly. I always have to send my steak back at restaurants who think that charred medium rare means burnt to a crisp all the way through. My steak was beautiful. Crispy char on the outside, medium rare juiciness on the inside, it was tasty beyond belief. And the neat thing was that I got to watch it be made right before my eyes. No wonder they have won so many awards for best steak.
My partnerâs salmon was just so-so, nothing to write home about but still good enough. Our companions enjoyed their meals as well as I did. We will be back.
As we left, the best show of the night was sprawled out before us. Millions of sparkling valley lights as far as the eye could see.
Some notes to the owners. I would focus on the steaks, they are your money maker. Get some gravy for your mashed potatoes. Spice up your salmon with some fish seasoning. Donât even bother with the corn on the cob, nothing will ever make it good.
In summary, it is good simple food, with good service in a laid back rustic situation. I donât know what all these people are bitching about, what were they expecting from a place like this? Valet Service? This is a not some snooty Scottsdale restaurant, this is a what you see is what you get sort of place.
The place looks like a steakhouse should look if its 100 years old. It has the menu on the wall and the tables are benches. Not a big deal in fact a person could grow to like it. That was not the issue. The food was mediocre at best.. They have a salad bar which is only lettuce and dressing. They serve your dinner with beans which taste like they are taken right out of a can and heated up. No flavor at all. I was expecting bbq beans or beans with maybe some brown sugar or something but no. Then the steak was brought out with my side of corn and some bread. The bread was just sliced bread and the butter was cold so you could not spread it on the bread anyways. The corn cobs were good at least but the steak was overcooked and a little dry. Basically for what they charge, I would pass. I could get a good steak at the outback or black angus for the same price and it would taste way better. I recommend that you pass this place up. I don't think I'll ever go back
THE WORST! Food was overcooked, burnt and tasteless. Sides were brought to us cold. Waitress was just plain nasty. We actually had to get up and get our own drinks after waitig for refills for over 15 minutes. Stakes were burnt and dry. Over $60.00 for the three of us to get bad food and lousy service. Reconsider!
Great views and good food. Love the casual cowboy feel. You can even ride a horse to dinner(which I have done and it was super fun). The menu is limited but it gets the job done. I love the hamburger and beans (they are not sweet at all but do need salt).
If the food wasn't good, you wouldn't see Sheriff and Police Officers there early on Friday and Sat nights!!!
Plus its not a chain - GO LOCAL.
This is a great steak place!!! Hence the name Steakhouse. Why would anyone get anything else but that. Don't expect anything fancy, this is a Cowboy Steakhouse. It has rustic charm and has been in the community for many years. Great place to view the city, have a good steak, and great local charm.
Just had a meal at the T-bone.
Have been there several times before.
This visit left me with a very bad review to write.
First it is not handicap accessible
Second, the food was not up to the quality it has been in the past.
The salad bar or green bean and iceberg lettuce bar was a sorry sight.
Third, only three choices of salad dressing and unsalted crackers.
The bread was too, too soft with hard hard butter to spread on it.
Fourth, Beans were too sweet and cold.
Fifth, Chicken was raw in the middle and burnt on the inside
Sixth, our waiter did not speak understandable English
Seventh, You have a sorry menu
Eighth, my steak was dry, dry dry-no taste
Ninth-the salad bowls too small and very well used/worn/old
Tenth, steak knives too flimsy
Eleventh, the tip was put on our check, we like to think we are doing this not you charging us to eat at your place
I could name more inadecuacies but this is enough.
I guess I won't be seeing you again.
Awesome view, very rustic and simple....good food, drinks, and great service. Bench and table seating, which is ok....sawdust on the concrete floors. Has a cowboy atmosphere and is a delightful change from the regular resturant venue in the Phoenix area. Great place to take the folks from back east when they come to town......HIGHLY recommended!
