If you like the smell of Barbecue....

If you like the smell of barbecue you will definitely like this place. Service was fast. Staff were friendly and keen to chat. Food was fast food but very good for what you get. Bathrooms were incredibly modern and clean. If that's the standard one can only imagine what the kitchen would be... read more

My husband and I decided to drive the 28 miles up to the top of Mt. Lemmon. We had lunch at the Sawmill Run restaurant. Wonderful time. The service was excellent, staff very friendly, and the food was delicious. The cherry cobbler......to die for. Definitely worth the drive.

We were going up to Mr. Lemmon to bird watch and checked TripAdvisor for a place to have lunch. This place was great and deserved its good ratings. My husband had the brisket dip and I had the pulled pork. Both were delicious as were the sides-house made chips, mac n cheese that tasted homemade and sweet potato tots that... More

We stopped for lunch and we found serendipity. The service was good to set the tone for a tasty light lunch well prepared. We had a green chili bacon cheeseburger, a spinach dip with loads of pita, carrot and celery sticks and a more than delicious bowl of turkey chili. This was a golden opportunity to not only dine but... More

I arrived for a late lunch and was promptly greeted by the manager,seated and served a tall glass of ice water with lemon by my server, Sabrina. I ordered the "Monster" chicken bagette with mac and cheese and a salad. While waiting I took note of the decor. Very interesting restaurant. A lot of logging artifacts were used including two...

Service was a little slow, but the food was worth the wait. Lots of clean plates at our table. If you can, eat outside on the patio. It was too cold for them to serve out there, but a wonderful wood fire was burning in the outdoor fireplace. We enjoyed waiting for our table by the fire.

A new favorite! We decided to go to the Sawmill Run Restaurant when we found that my husbands favorite restaurant at the top of Mt. Lemmon, The Irongate, was closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. It turned out to be our lucky day! We both had outstanding meals! They smoke their own brisket and pork - incredibly delicious. I have been... More

Drove up to the top of Mt Lemmon today and had lunch at the Sawmill Run Restaurant. I had the grilled Caesar salad and it was awesome. My bride had the Turkey sandwich with sweet potato tots. She loved it. Inlaws had the burger and Ruben and they both said they were great. All in all a great lunch had... More

The sandwiches were delicious and the meat was melt in your mouth tender. Generous portions of our side dishes too. Service was good as well. There are photos on the walls that seemed to be of the area in earlier times. Fun to look at. We will definitely eat here again.
