Valley Standards: They Are All Ours

by RaeAnne Marsh

And they defy categorizing. These Valley lunch standards stand out because of their history, great food and service during that mid-day meal.

Cowboy Ciao

At this Old Town Scottsdale favorite, lunch will likely lead to dinner there the same night. Cowboy Ciao’s incredible creations include the famed Stetson Chopped salad.

Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., this is the place to be. It has been this way for more than 60 years. Entrée salads, burgers and even the “Fat Man’s Special” — all available in the ‘50s-style steakhouse atmosphere — provide a meal that means business.
