Old restaurant in Cave Creek. My husband had their hamburger…just okay. I had their French dip sandwich which was okay but nothing special. Our waitress was nice but overall our experience was just okay.

I adore the Old Fashion decor in this historical tourist town of the Old West. This is my third dining experience at the Horny Toad. Each time I have been greated upon entry and seated with no wait. The service was top notch every time. The first two visits was with my brother and he loves this place. We sat... More

I've had an advertisement for this place in the car for months. Always saying I need to go to their all you can eat Friday fish fry & finally did it... and I'm so glad I did... the Icelandic Cod was GREAT. The place has been doing business for over 20 years & there's a reason for that... It might... More

Stopped in here for a drink before dinner. Enjoyed chatting with the bartender and the drinks were well made.

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
