After opening its first location last year at 8820 W Charleston Blvd, local restaurant and tavern Rustic House is at work on a second.
“The brand has worked really well,” owner Adam Corrigan told What Now on Saturday. “It’s upscale, but comfortable. We’re non-smoking, and kids are allowed. We’re not so much a bar with poker machines as a restaurant with poker machines.”
With a welcoming ambiance and a “rustic old-school feel,” Rustic House offers a menu that opens with Starters like Chicken Wings, DW Crack Shrimp, and House Made Spinach Artichoke Dip. Entrees include Maple Mustard Glazed Salmon, Rigatoni Vodka, and Spicy Cajun Chicken Penne. A selection of burgers and sandwiches like the Mediterranean Chicken Wrap gives onto steaks like the 18-oz Bone-In Ribeye.
Rustic House’s menu also features breakfast dishes (served from midnight until 11) like Crispy French Toast and Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs, and a dip into Mexican cuisine with Carne Asada Tacos and the Wet Burrito. To drink, there is a generous wine list and a selection of beers and cocktails.
The site on Sunset Road is on the southeast corner of the intersection with South Grand Canyon Drive in Rhodes Ranch. To the east is the South Fort Apache Road intersection, home to Dairy Queen Grill and Chill.
“I’ve been building bars for thirty years, and this one just felt right,” Corrigan said. “We’re going to keep doing them.”
