“Always superior value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

It's been a year since we were last at Lon's and it was with some trepidation that we returned again as things usually change - and not always for the better. To our surprise Lon's exceeded our expectations (again). Great service, excellent food and a greatatmoshpere combined to make this again a great evening out in the greater Phoenix area. Highly recommended!

“A very special place for a very special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Great service, great menu, great food! The location is like none other - you feel like you are at a genuine hacienda. Menu variety is great and the wine selection was fantastic, along with the cocktails.

“What a GREAT FIND”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We had to make a quick trip to Phoenix / Scottsdale area. I called a friend of mine who travels to this area frequently and takes people to lunch and dinner and said if you only had one night or afternoon to go somewhere where would it be. After several suggestions he says Oh! Wait no contest...if you want a GREAT steak try Lon's at the Hermoas.

It was an excellent suggestion we found out by experience. Usually slow in the summer time the restaurant was teaming with activity but they were able to seat us quickly. The atmosphere is everything you would expect in an authentic southwest surrounding. The food is unique but not weird and there are many choices. I opted for the rib eye and my wife the tender filet. They have a great outside area however that area would be better suited for winter time as it was only 113 F in August :) And don't forget to try the Cowboy Candy Bar for desert. Easily shared by two.
Words cannot describe the different things on the menu, so check out their web site to get a better vision of Lon's at the Hermosa. http://www.hermosainn.com/lons/

“Beautiful, historic Arizona charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

A top notch restaurant with wonderful service, food and wine. Sitting outside for a cocktail is a lovely way to begin your meal. The setting is serene, peaceful and makes you feel like you are a million miles away in a beautiful hacienda.

“Wonderful "old Phoenix" restaurant still great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

It's been a number of years since I've been to Lon's (7 actually) and it is still as wonderful as ever. Had the pleasure of having lunch there last week. I had grilled salmon that was just fantastic. And they added gnocchi southwestern style. Wonderful. Be ready for an authentic, historic Phoenix atmosphere. There are few of them left! My guess is nothing on the menu will leave you wanting...
