Prescott Arizona’s Prescott Station Grill and Bar
Living in N. Scottsdale, we’ve long been fans of the Carefree Station Grill & Bar in Carefree, Arizona. In fact, it is not uncommon for us to roam there after church on Sunday for a heaping helping of their Chilaquiles.
Chilaquiles, in case you’re not familiar, is a classic Mexican Sunday morning dish that wives would prepare for their husbands who perhaps had a little too much tequila the night before. We highly recommend the dish.
We were recently in Prescott, Arizona for our Historic Hotels of Arizona Tour and found that the fine folks from the Carefree Station had just opened a new restaurant called Prescott Station Grill and Bar directly across the street from where we were staying. Cool!
The Prescott Station Grill & Bar is located in the historic downtown district of Prescott, is just a few blocks away from the famous Whiskey Row, and from its lofty perch you will enjoy views of Thumb Butte and downtown Prescott from their scenic patio.
This casual restaurant also offers a fun cocktail bar called Bev Heaven where you will find signature cocktails and more than 250 highly rated wines and 100 unique beer selections.
We started our meal sharing a bowl of Prescott Station’s classic Tortilla Soup / chicken broth, chilies, cilantro, chicken breast, hominy, monterey jack cheese, roasted peppers, black beans and crisp tortilla strips.
I’m a big fan of tortilla soup, and this certainly did not disappoint. YUM!
While Carol and I are often in a sharing mood when we dine out, we also share a beautiful Roasted Beet Salad / house-roasted red and yellow beets, blue cheese, field greens, potato crisps, balsamic dressing.
As we scoured their tempting menu, my carnivorous wife went for one of her favorites: baby back ribs. However, Prescott Station likes to call them Our Babies / special dry rub, slow braise, spiced chipotle honey glaze, served with mac & cheese, grilled vegetable and blackberry BBQ sauce. Finger lickin’ good!
For my entrée, I went for a classic Jambalaya / andouille sausage, crawfish, smoked chicken, shrimp, mussels, creole sauce over cajun rice.
To help you walk away a little wealthier then when you came in, we suggest that you try the 24 Karat Cheesecake. It’s covered in real gold dust and oh so decadent to the palate!
There exits a breed of restaurant that isn’t necessarily “gourmet”, but possesses a family owned-and-operated cuisine that is clearly a step above well respected chain restaurants.
This is that kind of place. Come as you are, enjoy great food, and revel in a restaurant absolutely jam-packed with raving fans of big, bold, local cuisine.
We liked it, and recommend the experience highly.
