Rod’s Steak House, Williams, AZ. The original Rod was a cattleman and Route 66 entrepreneur in the ’40s. Nods to his legacy are still here in the dinnerware, signage (that’s Domino, the fiberglass steer, glowing atop the roof ), and cow-shaped menu, which serves up steakhouse classics. One deserved favorite is the sugar-charred sirloin, dripping with sweet beefy juices. But don’t neglect the prime rib, equally tasty and substantial. Must-try: The Rocky Mountain trout, if you’re not in the mood for meat. $$$; 301 E. Route 66; 928/635-2671.
