Arizona only became a state in 1912, so, when looking for a historic or older restaurant to enjoy a meal at it can be quite a challenge. Most places are more touristy than anything that’s truly authentic old west. However, if you want to look past the themed restaurants and you want a real meal at a real historical place, then you need to go to these following restaurants the next time you’re in Arizona.
Palace Restaurant and Saloon
If you want to go to a place where Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday dined at, then look no further than the fabulous Palace Restaurant and Saloon. Now, the sad part here is that the original inside décor was burned down in a 1901 fire. The good news is the regulars saved the original mahogany bar that Wyatt Earp and his gang drank at.
In fact, they carried the bar out of the restaurant and kept drinking. Serious drinkers only at this bar. At any rate, it was renovated in 1901 to look exactly like it did in 1877. Plus, the food is said to be amazing! Prime rib is one of the top-ordered items here, and it is highly raved about. If you’re looking for food and historic flavor, this is a must-see.
Address: 120 South Montezuma Street, Prescott.
