TEXAZ - Central Phoenix

I decided it was time to leave our comfort zone and head out to places west of the 51. I had read a bit about TEXAZ, so decided that would be our first adventure.
There is limited parking but we got there early and found a spot. The place appears small and the smoking section is not separated from the non-smoking. It is filled with TONS of Texas stuff. We were seated quickly and the server came by in just a few moments. We both ordered water and were glad it was in one of those huge glasses.

We asked what she recommended and received the standard “everything”. Hubby went for chicken fried chicken and I ordered prime rib. Both came with salad (cole slaw or green) and potato. We both ordered green salad. The salads are served first. The green salad comes with chopped green olives and a house ranch. The dressing appeared to have blue cheese and was quite tangy. I liked it but the salad was doused – more like dressing with a bit of lettuce. A bread basket was delivered with the salad – one biscuit and one roll. Hubby quickly grabbed the biscuit and I got the roll. It was obviously a store bought roll, been sitting out and was a little hard and cold. Not very yum.

Dinner come pretty quickly. Hubby said chicken was good. My prime rib was fine but nothing special. The mashed potatoes were very tasty and obviously homemade.

We decided to skip dessert and head to Mary Coyle’s since we were already this close!

I would say this place is okay but definitely not worth the drive from North Scottsdale - or most any place else.
