The Last of the Old West Steakhouses
The far northern reaches of Scottsdale used to be the home to two old west steakhouses, Pinnacle Peak Patio and Reata Pass. Both closed for business a few years ago. On Sunday when I took the drive out to north Scottsdale, I came across all that remains of the Reata Pass business.
All that is left is a tall water tower and a few ramshackle buildings that made up the the little "western village" that surrounded the steakhouse.
I did eat at Reata Pass many, many years ago when it was big attraction. It was one of those places where Arizona residents would take their out of state guests to serve up some western atmosphere. These days we tend to take guests to the latest hot new restaurant.
