If you want a cheap steak here is where to get it. – Went there on a Friday night, and had a 1 lb. T-bone that had no flavor to it. Had a lot of fat, and tough. Sent it back, and got another steak of the same quality. If you want a cheap steak, go here. If you want quality go elsewhere.
Kitsch meets west at this cowboy steakhouse with entertainment and attitude. – The Scene
This tourist-oriented steakhouse in Trail Dust Town attracts plenty of locals, too, especially families, with its kitschy Old West atmosphere. Waiting for a table? Mosey out to the bleacher area and catch the free Western shoot-out show at 7pm, 8pm or 9pm nightly. Be sure not to wear a tie; customers are unceremoniously relieved of their neckwear with the help of a pair of scissors.
The joint proclaims its specialty to be "mesquite-broiled cowboy steaks," and it's foolish to expect a haute cuisine experience in such a Wild West environment. That said, the cooking satisfies enough people that there's often a wait for a table, even though Pinnacle Peak seats 550. The standard meal is a one-pound mesquite-grilled steak, salad, bread, and superb pinto beans. Show your rugged individuality by ordering a high-falutin' filet mignon.
User review by stepsd – My daughter brought me here once(she loves it). I thought the steak was very tough and the beans were not seasoned, not a great meal, probably what you would have found in a saloon in the old west days. We also had to wait quite a while for a table.
So Much Fun! – Pinnacle Peak in Trail Dust Town is a great place to take family members and have an all-out great time! There is so much to do after you enjoy a wonderful Mesquite Grilled Steak! Oh sooooo good!
Nightly stunt shows are incredibly funny and several shops to browse through add just the right touch to the evening.
I highly recommend Pinnacle Peak to anyone who is looking for enjoyable food and good family fun!
Also, the Savoy Opera House is a private banquet hall, that has a victorian theme for any event! Lots of weddings and corporate events held there!
Staying power – I grew up in Tucson and went back after being away for 15 years and Pinnacle Peak lived up to all my memories of the food. It was a blast to take my husband there. Pinnacle Peak was the first resteraunt that I wanted to go to when visiting Tucson. I recommend it.
fun with great food – We lived in Tucson for a while before moving to California. We were introduced to Pinnacle Peak by some friends. It was a distance from our home, but well worth the drive. Now we try to get there when ever we go back to Tucson for visits. There is no place that compares where we currently live. Go, enjoy! But if you insist on wearing a tie, make sure its one you would like to see eliminated from your wardrobe. Its fun to see all the wierd ties hanging from the rafters. The food is great and the staff is fun.
Family Event – When we lived in Tucson it was a family tradition to go to Pinnacle Peak before heading to the latest show at the Gaslight Theater. We took turns wearing a tie until we'd all had one cut off. We always had the Pit Beef and loved it! Lots of food and budget prices. They used to have more sauce choices for the beef, but what they have now is still good. Always debated trying to conquer the 2 lb steak, but never could pass up the Pit Beef! We're going back next month to visit, and it will be my daughter's turn to wear the tie! Can't wait!
For tourists only – When I first moved to Tucson a few years ago, EVERYONE recommended Pinnacle Peak for a great steak. After eating there, I realize that I must have a different opinion of a great steak than most people. While you do get a lot of food for your money, you get what you pay for. The steaks are not the best quality, the beans are bland, and the salads are yawn-worthy. It does have an 'Old West' feel to it, and is therefore good for tourists, and also has much to do for kids. But for grown-ups with no kids, looking for a quality steak dinner, this is not it. And while they do take your tie and nail it to the rafters, I don't imagine they've ever cleaned their collection, by the amount of dust hanging off of them...
Tourists Only – Unless you want to get rid of an old tie or think that dining at someplace like Furr's is a treat, avoid this place. The meat is tough; the atmosphere is loud; and you'll still be waiting for something called service. Go to the Ranchers Club, Sullivans, or McMahons if you're looking for a great steak.
Tom – This place is a joke. The waitresses look (and act) like your old boozer Aunt Nellie, the steaks are like shoe leather, the only decent thing on the menu is the beans. Don't be lured in by the ill-informed and/or paid reviews. Stay away!
