We had a birthday celebration for my Aunt who turned 98 years young. The waitstaff was attentive and fussed over my Aunt's birthday. The vintage artifacts make the experience more memorable. Food was modern and the skirt steak was very tasty. Overall it was a memorable experience and we plan to return for our next visit.

Lon's offers a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere in a traditional dining room. Service and food quality is very reliable. At a recent dinner, the $40 Prix fixe menu included a light gazpacho soup, hanger steak with frites, and a grapefruit tart. This was very good value. Some in our party ordered a la carte and were equally pleased (the chicken entree... More

Took the love of my life to Lon's for a very special evening. The restaurant then and is located in the heart of Paradise Valley and then upscale residential area. We sat on the patio, in February listening to the cowboy musician. The food the service and the ambience was great. I believe we fell in love all over again.

If you are in search of a historic property with a great southwestern setting then you should make a reservation. During season the outdoor dining is the place to sit. Large outdoor area has umbrellas, heaters, and a huge fountain. More of a romantic place at night, but you are able to eat in the bar which is small. Cocktails... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the Phoenix metro area is Lon's at the Hermosa Inn. I love taking out of town friends & family to Lon's. It is fun to tell them about the history of this authentic adobe hacienda that was built in the 1920s by Lon Megargee. He was a cowboy, artist, and gambler, and enjoyed entertaining... More

Lon's is a great place for a meal. We have been there several times. The menu consists of a nice variety, including southwestern themed entrees. The patio is enchanting with the flowers and lighting. The service is always impeccable.

Enjoyed phoenix restaurant week specials at Lon'n. Good food and service and a relaxed outside atmosphere with the cowboy guitar man playing old favorites.

I had been to Lon's a number of times in the past primarily for dinner and twice for New Year's eve. Hadn't been in several years, however. On a whim, wife and I decided to try Lon's for breakfast on a weekday morning. Great choice. This time of year in Phoenix it's still possible to sit outside and the garden... More

According to friends in Scottsdale area, this is considered a local's hangout. Music on the patio (at least on the weekend when we were there), great place to have drinks. Lots of folks having dinner outside, but we weren't used to 96 degrees at 8pm (mid-May) so we had dinner inside. Excellent service, waiter was great. Food was exceptional too,... More
