Don & Charlies has been a household name as a prime steakhouse without the attitude since 1981. They recently opened their doors to the Yelp Elites to show them why they are not only a Phoenix staple, but also a popular stop for sports celebrities who pass through town! During the elite-only party, yelpers experienced a truely five star experience from the minute they stepped through their doors to the moment they rolled out in a food coma from the full dining experience!
Gallo Winery greeted the elites with full glasses of their red and white vino to sip while Don & Charlie's filled every table with shrimp cocktail and artichoke dip starters. Elites mixed and mingled with familiar faces and befriended new ones as they played Yelp Elite bingo for the chance to win a $50 Don & Charlie's gift card! After gazed at the walls lined with one-of-a-kind sports memorabilia from over the years and conversing over wine and activities, elites took their seats and the feast began!
Don & Charlie's staff grinned from ear to ear while they took elite's orders from the special menu. Each elite chose from a Cesar, Wedge or House Salad to start; BBQ ribs, Filet, BBQ Chicken, Ribeye or BBQ Salmon for their entree and a sweet finale with their choice of Key Lime Pie, Creme Brulee or a Goldbrick Sundae. While they feasted on the generous meal from Don & Charlie's, Gallo made sure that the wine didn't stop flowing all evening long!
Don, the owner of Don & Charlie's, enthusiastically chatted with each and every elite and two guests were lucky enough to leave with $50 gift cards for a future visit to the championship dining steakhouse. As if that wasn't enough, everyone left with a bottle of Don & Charlie's signature BBQ sauce and a goodie bag filled with Yelp sunglasses and a sports ornament for their Christmas tree.
Until next time, SYOY!
