This is a charming, rustic little restaurant and well worth a visit. We called I. Without reservations and were warmly greeted by the hostess. Having being sat at a booth the waitress was very prompt and took our drinks order. The main menu has so many choices that we really didn't know what to try. In the end I opted... More

This is a funky rustic place. It has been here for some time and fits in with the old west style of other parts of Cave Creek. There is outside seating with music in the evenings or inside seating. Friday they have all you can eat fish and chips which were pretty good and highly recommended by others eating there.... More

My boyfriend and I visited late July with his family....we shared the fried chicken with a side of "mean" beans and fries and a little strawberry shortcake to wash it all down...everything was delicious!

On our way home from Sedona today, my wife and I were excited to be able to detour to Cave Creek for some of that "delicious" fried chicken at the Horny Toad. We have been going to that restaurant for about 15 years and it almost never disappointed. Today we were served chicken that looked and tasted like it was... More

Western style restaurant in Cave Creek. Easy parking and absolutely the BEST fried chicken in town. Plenty for 2 to share. Don't miss the strawberry shortcake either. HUGE and tasty

We come here fairly often, we bring friends here when we want to show them Cave Creek. The fried chicken is always fantastic. We have had almost everything on the menu. The only item that was disappointing was a cobbler desert we brought home for later. I recommend Horny Toad over the other casual restaurants in Cave Creek. They even... More

We all loved it! Large portions and tasteful food! You must try the delicious fajitas! Don't forget to ask for separate bills though (group under 7)...

We ate on a Friday and had the fish fry special. The fish was wonderfully cooked and was crispy and not greasy. Good frays and coleslaw on the side. The restaurant was almost empty but it was almost 2p when we dined. I would go there again for the fish. Service was good.

We came here two years ago. Dinner was OK. Cute place. Decided to stop for dinner. VERY few people there (not a good sign). Again, not busy. Waited 10 mins. Waitress came near us 3 times. Never greeted us. Never welcomed us. 10 minutes. Again not busy. We got up and left. Service is terrible. Very disappointed.

After a morning of horseback riding we lunched at the Horny Toad in Cave Creek. Our family enjoyed the casual, fun atmophere. The food was all good. Would recommend the fish sandwich as it was outstanding! Good burgers, etc. We were told that the cobbler is not to miss, but we were all so full we couldn't order it!
