It's always fun to stop here fora bite and the Arizona atmosphere! The food is good. The fried chicken is exceptional. The desserts are large enough to feed four or more adults.

Every time we drive by the restaurant, the parking lot is packed so my husband and I decided to try it. We each had prime rib, which was okay - it came just as we ordered it, and it was reasonably priced. There just wasn't anything that made the meal stand out or anything about the restaurant that made it... More

Not bad. Not great. Definitely has its local fans. Food was just ok. Best menu choice seemed to be the fried chicken.

We have been driving out to the Horny Toad almost monthly all the way from Goodyear for what is probably the best fried chicken (and yes, it is a whole chicken for $16.95) in the Phoenix area. I cannot say enough good things about it, since it can satisfy even the hungriest of appetites and makes for a nice late-night... More

Any time a restaurant has a gift shop, it's safe to say you are at a "touristy" restaurant. And if that's what you want, this isn't so bad since that's the point, and the food was good. We had BBQ chicken, prime rib, and sirloin -- all cooked the way we wanted it and tasty. A pitcher of beer topped... More

Rustic atmosphere, great food friendly staff, touristy. A most enjoyable time, but a bit on the pricey side

Went for a drive in cave creek, happened upon this place. Great ambiance of the old west. Has a little gift shop in same parking lot. We opted to sit in the patio area. As we were walking through the restaurant, the smell of great fried chicken made my mouth water! Had the poppers and ordered a hamburger stuffed with... More
