Get ready for the meal deal of the year. On Feb. 14 when Arizona celebrates its 100th birthday, Monti's La Casa Vieja in Tempe will honor the centennial by giving the first 100 people in line a sirloin steak dinner with two sides and Monti's Roman Bread - for 75 cents, plus tax. That's what the dinner would have sold for in 1912.

Monti's has sat on the corner of Mill Avenue and Rio Salado since the late 1800s, according to a news release.

"Our building has been here since Arizona became a state and it's especially touching as one of the oldest structures in the Valley to be able to give back to our long standing customers," owner Michael Monti said in the release.
