Cook your own steak on a stone at this new Tucson restaurant

A steakhouse that gives customers the option to cook their own steak on a tabletop stone is opening in Tucson next year.

The Hideout Steakhouse and BBQ leased 5,757 square feet at Tucson Spectrum, at the southwest corner of Irvington Road and Interstate 19, near the entrance to Harkins Theaters. Ben Craney and Jayme Fabe, with NAI Horizon, represented the landlord, and Nina Marvcesim, with Realty Executives AZ Territory, represented the tenant.

The Utah restaurant, with one location in Casa Grande, wanted to expand to Tucson, said owner Todd Gillespie.

“Part of my staff grew up in Tucson and have a pretty good employee base down there,” he said.

About 50 employees will be hired at the new location.

Steaks can be ordered traditionally, grilled in the kitchen or seared in the kitchen then brought to the table on a stone.

“My claim is that your last bite is as hot as your first one,” Gillespie said.

At the Hideout Steakhouse, you can order your steak to be served on a stone to finish cooking and remain warm.

The manufactured stones are made out of clay and other Earth material and stay hot for 45 minutes to an hour.

The former Ironwood Steakhouse is being remodeled with barn wood on the walls and rusted metal decor.

“People can come in shorts and tennis shoes or their Sunday best,” Gillespie said of the atmosphere.

Aside from steaks, the Hideout will feature brisket, pulled pork, chicken and ribs.

He hopes to be open in February.

The Hideout Steakhouse and BBQ will open next year at Tucson Spectrum, on the southwest corner of Irvington Road and Interstate 19, near the entrance to Harkins Theaters.
