Top Rated Steakhouses in Phoenix

(Stacker) — Cooking meat over low, slow heat over an indirect heat source – the only real qualification for barbecuing – is a true American tradition, dating back to indigenous cultures and carried over to the early Spanish colonizers who also gave it the name that the kitchen style now wears: barbacoa. Today, barbecue is a hugely popular staple in the United States, with many cities and regions offering their own version (and all claiming to have the best). Because barbecue meat takes hours and hours to cook, restaurants are a go-to source for many Americans who prefer not to spend all day and night tending to their flames. Stacker has compiled a list of the highest rated barbecue restaurants in Phoenix on Tripadvisor.
