“Come for the BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We heard about Bryan's in Cave Creek because we were looking for good BBQ. We took a short ride north of Scottsdale and found ourselves in a rough little town. The small strip where Bryan's is had the nicest stores (two) in town. We walked through a gift shop that (can't remember the name) but worth a stroll. There is also a real master hat maker, Watson's Hat Shop, so stroll through there before or after eating.
Bryans, is not fancy; in fact it's cafeteria style, but it's so good. We had ribs and you get two sides. I had the baked potato salad and chili. The baked potato salad was delicious, but the chili was fabulous. They use small bean and put real chunks of meat in it.
The ribs had a dry run on them, but they also had a swath of sauce. They had a bit of heat on the back end; they were wonderful.

“Wish Bryan Would Open A Place In Our Hometown!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Although I am not a meat-eater, my "other half" is, and so we are always looking for good BBQ. This place was recommended to us, and it did not disappoint. According to my other half, the ribs and chicken were fantastic, and the BBQ sauce was amazing. There are a few veggie options (which we appreciated), but mostly, we focused on the BBQ which was simply top-notch. Our only disappointment was/is that we don't have Bryan in our hometown, but now every time we're in the Scottsdale/Cave Creek area, we'll have some place to go for a great, quick and tasty meal. We highly recommend Bryan's. Go and enjoy!

“Love it here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I have eaten here at least a dozen times and never had a bad experience. The food is always excellent. I usually get the ribs or brisket. My husband loves the vegetarian option which is a barbecued spaghetti squash sandwich. My son loves the pulled pork. Their fries are seasoned so well, I think they are the best around. Also, the roll is so nicely toasted for the sandwiches. I love the attention to detail here. They have a homemade ice cream sandwich that is fantastic. I also like to patronize a family owned place, especially when the owners care so much about making it a good experience for the customers. You place your order yourself and they call your name when it's ready, so no tips here, which makes it a reasonable evening out. We will continue to regularly dine at this fantastic place.

“Excellent BBQ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Took a day drip to Cave Creek and was recommended to this restaurant. All I can say is thank you for the recommendation! A great place to eat. The meals are competitively priced and great value. Try their beef brisket.....wow....and the sweet pickled Jalapeno...wow! The staff were exceptionally helpful and added greatly to the dining experience...keep up the good work team Bryan!
