Great food

I love this place but sometimes it is so busy, that you can't get in! I went there on a Thursday evening since I knew it would be too busy on a Friday night. I had Alaskan Salmon, Brussel sprouts, Pea pods & carrots! Now this was a healthily meal! I was eating alone, so I sat at the bar... read more

Server forgot our beer order. We had a empty glass for 30 minutes. Three bartenders behind the bar and not one check in to see if we wished to order. Avoid at all costs if your visiting from out of town and are looking to relax for a afternoon. Nice concept but owner or management has no clue. Chilies is... More

Good burgers and beer. good pricing. Not exceptional but about normal for a bar and grill. It's a great place to meet with friends and family for a fun night out. Has country western music.

My friend and I went here due to reviews, we were not impressed. The seating inside was terrible, our table was lop-sided so if we didn't keep our elbows on table it would lean to one side, if you want water you better ask for it, the tea was very disappointing, and really the food was not that good.

We had the smoked chicken salid, and the beef salid $12 each. They were large portions, with lots of meet, various lettice, nuts, tomatoes, etc. Good service and busy. Lunch menu all $8.

Hubby had peppercorn burger and I had smoked pork stuffed in a pepper with braised brussel sprouts and cheese cake for dessert-some neat healthy side options and meat is cooked on an outdoor wood smoker on patio, we ate there at night and it was beautiful out! Manager came and chatted us up and they were super busy so maybe... More

From the other reviews we expected a little more. We sat at the bar to eat/drink, so maybe that was an issue. But it wasn't too busy when we were there, yet service was slow, and we never saw the bartender smile. Prices were more than we were expecting, and the food was just OK. The atmosphere was cool, but... More

the most outstanding thing is the friendliness of the staff. The food is very good. Eat outside if you can.

We dropped by for lunch after a wonderful horseback riding experience at the OK Corral -- mainly because the Handlebar was listed as Trip Advisor's Number One restaurant in Apache Junction. Which makes me very curious indeed: unless Trip Advisor permits the deck to be stacked by friends and in-laws (which it insists it doesn't), on what possible planet could... More

We had lunch there in February and enjoyed the outdoor patio area while dining. The brisket sandwich was disappointing as it had a very small portion and wasn't as flavorful as expected. The "scoop" of potatoes was delicious and the sweet potatoe was okay. Beer selections are good and we enjoyed the experience. We'd try it again but forgoe the... More
