Tortilla Flat

If you are ever in the Phoenix area, one of the "must do" items is a trip to Tortilla Flat (The Town Too Tough To Die) for lunch or dinner. The drive alone makes it worthwhile as you wind your way up through a series of multi-colored rock mountains and canyons. Then you are in for a unique dining experience at the restaurant & saloon. Of course, it helps to go with professional travelers...

The first thing you will probably notice when you walk in is almost every square inch of wall space is covered in real paper money. Dick had heard that it may total as much as a quarter of a million dollars...

The second thing you might notice is that the bar stools are horse saddles...

Fun way to "belly up to the bar"

Lastly, after your meal you will want to meander next door to the gift shop for some ice cream. I highly recommend the dark chocolate gelato.
