Phoenix New Times' Description

The goofy moniker might start spaghetti Westerns playing in your head, and the shabby-chic interior may be designed to appeal to yupper-class Scottsdalians with graying temples, money to burn and the fervent need to see themselves as still cool after all these years. But the food is intriguing, inventive and skillfully prepared, and the wine list is longer than a 19th-century Russian novel, with plenty of offbeat and affordable choices. Menu highlights include starters like the buffalo carpaccio -- paper-thin slices of seared bison rubbed with cumin-espresso -- and entrees such as the elk strip loin with hazelnut pesto and the sumptuous mushroom pan-fry with double-cooked polenta. Can't go wrong with the sticky toffee/chocolate cake for dessert.

    The Stetson Chopped is amazing! It's the strangest non-salad-salad and absolutely addicting! I get cravings for it all the time but unfortunately this place is a bit on the higher-end so it's a special treat! Very cool wester/european theme and great atmosphere tucked away in a beautiful part of Old Town. Make a reservation!

    My parents took me here for lunch, I didn't know what to expect. The decor is a little cheesy for my taste, but the food is amazing! I had a bit of everybody's meal from the table and all of them were great. Worth visiting even with the weird decor!

    The Stetson Chop Salad was unbelievable! I couldn't believe that when I asked for the recipe - they gave it to me! Great service....I'll definitely go back!

    SO much good here...but I can't tear myself away from the much-imitated but never-matched Stetson Chopped Salad and the delectable Mushroom Pan Fry. I dare you not to lick the plate!
