    Once again arrived earlier than our reservation & got seated right away! The service was good but a bit slower than normal even though they weren't very busy. Started with the stuffed shrimp app, delish! We opted for the BOGO 16oz Ribeye, side salads & mixed veggies. We were disappointed that the portions did all seem smaller than normal plates down to the side salad. They weren't like the sizes on a non bogo night. Most disappointed that we didn't get mixed steamed veggies. Both if us got green beans, no mix of anything else. they were quite greasy & no longer a healthy option so we didnt eat them. It won't deter us from coming back but won't brew a bogo night. I'd rather pay full price for 2 meals cooked correctly.

    Usually ordered sandwich's or salads this time however we went on Sunday for a steak dinner. I had the prime rib which was excellent and surprisingly did not have a lot of fat. It was a large portion big enough for 2. My date had the filet which was also a good size and excellent. The garlic mashed potatoes were also excellent and not over powering. Service was at its best. Waiter was very attentive to our needs. We will make this place a favorite stop there for steaks again. maybe on Monday to try the BOG steak!

    We go to the dusty boot because it is close. But love the dusty boot because they care about their customers. They are not perfect but will resolve their mistakes. I appreciate a customer oriented restaurant when those seem to be so few in number. I will continue to go back.

    The ribeye steak special was one of the best-tasting steaks I have EVER had, and it was done perfectly at my request of medium rare. I also loved the accompanying parmesan-crusted kale - something you don't see very often. Don't get me wrong, the price of the steak does suggest it should be good quality (not cheap), but the atmosphere at first glance might suggest otherwise - the Dusty Boot Steakhouse and Saloon feels a bit more like a neighborhood saloon than a foodie place (although it does have some art on the walls). Anyway, we have now had really good food there twice, so would recommend it to anyone in the area. And they have a decent patio too - overlooks the freeway, but the mountains too!

    We arrived to a dinning room with three kids running amok. Luckily, after five minutes of sitting at our table, the family left. Not to say we dislike children, but it's not very appropriate to just have them running around screaming and no one saying anything so other diners can enjoy their meals. The waitress was very nice and accommodating, as I require a gluten free, dairy free diet. We ordered an appetizer, sirloin tips, which had no flavor, very bland. I ordered their $26 New York steak, medium rare, which came on a bloodied plate as medium well. I sent it back and it came back rare, basically mooing. The flavor was good, but not the temperature I would have preferred. Not sure if I would give them another chance.

    I mentioned our open table reservation to the bartender/greeter (for points credit) and he was SO RUDE! Then he took us to a booth when we had requested a table. When I asked if he had seen the note about it on our reservation he almost yelled, "Hey man! You're here so early you can sit ANYWHERE you want! I told our waitress about what happened and she graciously went and confirmed our open table reservation. The fish and chips tasted like they had been deep fried in old stale oil and the veggies with my steak were over cooked to the point that they were mushy. The ONLY good thing about the place was our genuinely sweet, attentive waitress. Not a peak day & time, but still...AWFUL!

    We went on Father's Day for dinner. The steaks were burnt and the garlic mashed potatoes tasted like they were prepared a week ago. The waitress couldn't remember who ordered what and almost dropped a plate on my lap. The music was too loud! I honestly believe we could have had a higher quality meal at Outback or Texas Roadhouse. Also, they are extremely pricey and very over-rated. I was so disappointed and will not be returning to this establishment. However, the hostess was nice.

    We went for Easter brunch for the first time. It was very loud and not much room between tables. The food was good, but there was not a very good variety. They don't give enough food for the price. We paid $9 for a frittata and toast. Other sides are extra. Iced tea is $2.50 but coffee is 1.75. Not a good value.

    Specifically requested to NOT sit next to the bar due to noise level complaints from other reviewers and that we would have young children with us(under 2). When we arrived, of course our table was right next to the bar! I politely asked for another table and they said they were full up. I did say I specifically requested to NOT sit in the bar via my OT reservation and the hostess just shrugged her shoulders at me. Our party of 6, sat next to the really loud bar and the staff could have cared less. Food was not especially memorable, our children were less than compliant due to the "bar scene" taking place at our backs. Honestly, I'd rather have sat next to the bathroom or kitchen. Totally not akin to the Beaver Creek version.

    First time at the Dusty Boot and probably the last. Let me start by saying that when the food did arrive, it was really good. This restaurant is more of a sports bar with a country theme. TV's all over the place and loud. We had a dinner reservation but were seated at a high top table in the bar near the kitchen door. About 45 minutes into our dinner the hostess did get us a booth, still in the bar, but we happily moved away from the kitchen door. It took us almost 3 hours for dinner on a Saturday evening. The service was real slow. The filet mignon on the 5280 menu was excellent and cooked just right.

    My family went here for brunch. Honestly, we were less than impressed. The food was ok. Not great, not awful, just....ok. We got the steak tips as an appetizer, that was probably our favorite part of the meal, as we really enjoyed the balsamic on them. Hubby got a steak, and I got a burrito. The burrito was pretty good, nothing to write home about, bot ok. The steak definitely could have used some help. Hubby ordered it medium and while it was cooked appropriately on the inside, it was horribly charred on the outside. It tasted burnt and was dry! The service was also ok. Our waiter was nice and engaging, but the service was slow. Overall, I don't think we will come back to brunch here.

    I love a really well-done steak, and these guys do a well-marbled ribeye, with great seasoning flavor, and all the right fixin's. Their jumbalaya was divine, and they have a delectable bread service. I wish I could tell you how the other items on the menu would have been, but they were either out or the absentee server never brought them. I could even see the bar being filled for every game since large screen TVs surround the bar and dining areas. The country-western decor keeps it in step with it's name, which was more casual than the fine food suggested.

    Took my family to The Dusty Boot for dinner, they were busy so I tried to be understanding of the slow service. Only offered waters, food was bland (steaks were rubbery, fish was soggy, mini burgers had no flavor, Mac and cheese was cold, Dino nuggets were over cooked, chips were stale), only one refill on our waters. Never saw a manager anywhere in the place. Only person who was working hard was the hostess because she was bussing tables and trying how to seat large parties with reservations and no help. Felt bad for her. Our family will not be returning.

    Don't go here for a sophisticated dining experience. However, if you want great (bar) food at a reasonable price with good service provided in a clean environment, then the Dusty Boot should work just fine. The hamburger I had was cooked to perfection and my companion's fish and chips were quite solid!

    Our first experience at this restaurant found the place very noisy and unorganized. We were seated next to the open doorway to the kitchen area which appreared very messy. Our waiter was distracted and unattentive. Did not receive our bread until our meals were brought and we asked about it. My husbands steak was overdone and dry. Did not see our waiter again until the rest of the party was finished eating. Our experience was very impersonal and disappointing. Will not be back.

    Had the feel of a sports bar, and accordingly we had a few college football fans really take over the place with their enthusiasm. When you are eating a $30 steak, that part of the atmosphere seemed a bit mis-matched. We also caught them in the midst of a waiter assignment changeover, which did not work out well for us in the beginning (we flagged someone down after 20 minutes). Having said all that, the food was very good, and we'll be back. Just not under the guise of a romantic steak dinner...
