I had the green chili stuffed burger with French fries and it was delicious. The atmosphere is western, the server was efficient and friendly. I wish I had more time to explore the area, but I will be coming back

Went to this place for lunch. Good lunch. Decent service. Had burgers and potato salad and it was very good. Heard someone complaining about the prices and had to laugh cause in New York or Philly this place would be a steal. One complaint - they have to find a better t-shirt to sell. Don't like the logo. Bad marketing.... More

Having read other reviews there were no surprises. Excellent service. Typical touristy Western decor. Menu was typical American restaurant fare, burgers etc. Everything we ordered was excellent for what it was. The wine wasn't skimpy either.

Arrived just before the crowd. Service was quick and pleasant. Cocktails were very tasty. The portions were appropriate for lunch since we had sandwiches and a side. The fish was ok, the Rueben was like all others, and the pulled pork was good. The gift shop was disappointing. And the ladies rest room is very tiny and challenging. There is... More

This is a fun restaurant to take Arizona visitors. It is in the town of Queen Creek, which is a relaxing drive north of Phoenix where you still see a little desert scenery. It's atmosphere is "old west" and the food is good, old fashioned meals. The fried chicken and bar b que is great. The patio is a wonderful... More

I wanted to like this place, but the service, food, and ambiance were all disappointing. The waitress was obviously not happy about something, the food selection was boring, and the food quality was unexceptional. Unlike some of the other places in Cave Creek, I could tell we were surrounded by mostly tourists. You're better going to Harold's, or Brian's BBQ,... More

Tuna salad, Reuben's and good burgers. No sweet potato fries but delicious, refreshing raspberry ice tea. Outside dining at picnic tables makes the desert dining scene that much more fun.

A place we always take newcomers visiting Phoenix. Located in the fun town of Cave Creek, you can enjoy a bit of the "old west" while enjoying great food in a charming little hideaway right in town. The food is cowboy style and generous. Surroundings are casual and service is good. Try their strawberry shortcake.
