we had a great time for lunch during our recent visit to Tombstone. Live old school country music added to the fun. They were very busy so we sat at the bar. Bartender was helpful with suggesting drinks and food order. I didn't see any kids in this restaurant so not sure if they have an adult only policy -... More

As always, our reviews are based on our particular likings/tastes & real-time experience; they are never intended to persuade/dissuade anyone from patronizing a business. Visiting relatives in southern AZ, we had to venture into Tombstone making the 1.5hr. drive from Sahaurita. After taking in the sites/activities/shopping around Tombstone, we headed over to BNKs for a burger. The Saloon was packed... More

The food is mediocre i think. I was none impressed but it wasn't horrible. What makes this place great is the jovial atmosphere. A lot of people talking and having a good time. There was an entertainer there when we were there singing old country songs. Did a good job too i thought! Along with that, the place is neatly... More

Big Nose Kate’s Saloon is a must while visiting Tombstone. Not only do they have wonderful food, but the drinks, staff and atmosphere are exactly what you would expect and desire Tombstone to represent. Don’t be nervous about setting yourself up at the bar and taking a shot of straight whiskey like they would have back in the day …... More

Big Nose Kate's is more than just a place to eat and drink, it's a big ball of western fun. A trip back in time. The food is, in my opinion the best in Tombstone. From the brisket to the Cuban panini. The entertainment is equally great, from the in house singer / pianist to the bands that play in... More

It reminded me of sloppy joes in key west--fun party atmosphere is an historic saloon with decent bar food and great live music. Highly entertaining and an overall great time

Barbequed brisket was delicious & filling, very reasonably priced. The place was packed & full of excitement on a recent Saturday night. We hated to leave!
