We took my daughter and 9yr old grandson to Tombstone last week of Aug. 2014. Had to visit Big Nose Kate's Saloon as my husband and I had taken his cousin there the year before. We stopped in for drinks and nacho's this time around. The old building has lots of history. Was once part of the big hotel the... More

Restaurant was interesting. Did not eat there so can not comment on that. We had read about the ghost tour and waited until dusk to attend. Most of the stores close early - so there was nothing to pass the time. We were very disappointed - it was a narrated walk through town by a cowboy telling tales of "ghost... More

We stopped in here for "one drink" on the way home from dinner but stayed until closing because of the great music and atmosphere. We actually felt like we were back in that era, with all the noise and fun from that time.

Visited too early for a beer but we looked around and sat at the bar for a sarsaparilla and a diet coke. Not sure of the food but would go back if we were there in the afternoon. Hard to tell what was historic from newer features. Pretty bar.

Food was good. There is also live entertainment. The place was packed when we went there for lunch. Friendly servers always makes a difference. Definitely worth stopping in for a bite to eat.

Waiters & Waitresses all dressed up and carrying fake guns around, all look too cool for school, but all of them are perfectly polite and we had one of the best service ever while in the US. The guys was extremely attentive. There was some live music with the entire Saloon singing along. Now that may not be your cup... More

Unique atmosphere for a meal or a drink. The food was good as was the service. It was fun to see a little history there also. If I ever make it back to Tombstone I will definitely eat there again. Recommended for a unique eating or drinking experience.

If you are in Tombstone and need to eat go to Big Nose Kate's Saloon. It is not only a fun Saloon, but it also has the best food in Tombstone. They have a large menu with a variety of choices. The chili cheese fries and onion rings are so yummy!
