We had dinner here while staying in Paradise Valley. It came highly recommended but the only real positive was the setting. The food was expensive and nothing special. The service was fair. The waiter was not particularly attentive and was quick to recommend expensive choices.More

Yes I believe there were. Not a big selection but enough. The view is fantastic so it should override the limited veggie option.

You might be thinking of the Texaz Grill on 16th street. They have great chicken fried steak. I don't the El Chorro has Chicken Fried Steak.
