PY Steakhouse

An upscale Southwestern steakhouse
When you need a break from the blackjack table at Casino Del Sol, head to PY Steakhouse. The upscale Tucson restaurant injects a Southwestern taste into traditional steakhouse fare. To accompany the thick T-bone steak with truffled chimichurri sauce and a slew of housemade sauces, choose sides like green-chile au gratin potatoes or jalapeño spinach.

While the food may be fiery, the elegant white-and-cream-filled dining room is muted — glass chandeliers hang from a recessed ceiling, white cloth covers the tables and abstract art adorn the walls. It’s a soothing spot to dine before going back for another round in the casino.
