We are near the end of our exhaustive search for the Top 10 Best Steakhouses in Tucson. So far, we have reviewed: Pinnacle Peak; El Corral; Silver Saddle; PY; Cattletown; Daisy Mae's; Lil' Abner's; Tanque Verde Guest Ranch; Fleming's; & Sullivan's. This week we review Bob's Steak & Chop House at Omni Tucson National Resort.
We put Bob's off as long as we could because friends told us it was over priced and too formal. They were so down on Bob's that they refused to join us.
So, prejudice being what it is, Ms. Karen, Ms. Sue & I arrived at Bob's for an early Sunday dinner that we were certain none of us would enjoy and, moreover, regret the expense. Spoiler Alert! We could not have been more wrong.
For starters, Bob's has a view. Actually a magnificent golf course view. Ms. Karen & I have played at least a thousand rounds of golf in our younger years, but have not played golf in the past 8 due to my decrepit physical condition. At the first sight of people playing golf, Ms. Karen all but swooned.
I should note here that, regarding ambiance, most of the other steakhouses we reviewed didn't even have windows, let alone an actual view. PY; Cattletown; Pinnacle Peak; Sullivan's; Fleming's; Silver Saddle ... not a window in the place. So, our negative attitude about Bob's began to fall apart upon arrival.
We arrived at the appointed time, 5:30PM, and were promptly seated by the hostess. As we passed the hostess's desk, Ms. Karen noticed a large bowl of "gummy balls". Actually, we don't know what they are, but she took a handful and declared them (a) sour; and (b) really, really good. Another chip in our negative attitude.Read More
