Back in the old days, there was nothing more anticipated and celebrated than the ringing of the dinner bell. On the 65,000-acre Cartwright’s Range, it took a full month for ranchers and hands to round up cattle before a drive. They’d indulge in biscuits and gravy before the sun came up, and by dinner time at noon, they’d be good and ready for a meal of fresh baked bread, beans, canned or fresh greens
and a hunk of beef from a recently butchered steer. Supper time meant even more of the same, giving the working men fuel for the next day’swrangling.
In that tradition, our sister restaurant, Cartwright’s Sonoran Ranch House, has opened its doors for lunch. The fare has gotten decidedly better in the last hundred years or so, with offerings like dorado fish tacos, made-to-order organic elk/buffalo or corn-fed beef burgers, and salads so filled with flavor that even the burliest rancher will walk away satisfied. You can also enjoy a cold brew from our famous craft beer selection.
Choose from either an organic elk/bison burger or corn-fed beef burger with your choice of white cheddar or pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle planks, carmelized onions on a house-made sweet potato bun. 13.
