December 5, 2012. Sometimes you just want to try someplace different for a change. It does not have to be a long trip, a great adventure, or cost a fortune. We found one of these places about 20 minutes down the road from us in the town of Queen Creek, Arizona.
It used to be that we would try a different restaurant now and then to explore some of the Phoenix area’s diverse cuisines. Although we prefer a steak cooked just right on our own grill these days, we used a Restaurants.com certificate to try Trophy’s Steakhouse and experience the restaurant’s rather unique approach to decor. It was an interesting experience, as well as a good steak dinner!
Now, many people are hunters [and that is fine, although I am not] or photographers [which I only do casually] and enjoy the challenge of interacting with wildlife in, well, the wild.

It was an interesting meal!
