About
Located along the Verde River in Cottonwood, Arizona, the historic Blazin' M Ranch has invited visitors of all ages to experience the Western heritage of Arizona for nearly two decades and is a must-do attraction during your visit to Sedona and the Verde Valley! Featuring mouth-waterin' BBQ ribs and chicken and a toe-tappin, knee-slappin' hour-long Western stage production by award-winning musicians, the Blazin' M is the perfect venue for groups of all sizes. Open year round, except January, the climate-controlled barn accommodates 2 to 280 cowpokes! Guests are invited to arrive between 5:00 and 5:30PM in plenty of time before dinner and show and be immersed in the Old West complete with a museum, Old-Tyme photo studio, shooting gallery, ropin' lessons and Western shops filled with unique gifts. Belly up to the bar in the Copper Spur Saloon and partake in a local microbrew or area wine.

This is a great place to spend an evening, especially with a group for a special occasion. The gates open at 5 with dinner at 6:30. Go at 5 and enjoy all the fun things to do: ax throwing, target shooting, bull riding, cornhole, and even an escape room. There are also several shops, a small museum, and a saloon where you can get drinks.
The chuckwagon style dinner is excellent. I have some dietary restrictions which they noted on our reservation and followed through with no problem. The show was fun with a great finish. Its good fun for all ages.

I can't recommend this place. For the price, the food should be a lot better. It's barely bad buffet quality. So your basically paying for the entertainment value, which still seems a bit high. Best part of the night is the very end, with the Ghost Riders schtick. This place could do so much better thagh.

Our family attended the Holiday Hoedown and laughed the entire evening! The entertainers are multi-talented. Each serves as an usher, a server, and a musician. Eric Williams was especially noteworthy, as was the man who played Elvis. Everyone at the Ranch was exceptionally friendly. Our granddaughter celebrated her 8th birthday that evening and was ushered up to the stage for a special birthday shout-out. She was thrilled! The food was surprisingly good. But watch out for those flying biscuits :)

I purchased the VIP ticket for my first visit and had fun with the shooting, ax throwing and bull riding. Next time I won't have to do the extra stuff and will purchase the dinner show ticket. Dinner was very delicious and plentiful! The show was a lot of fun, with songs oriented to Christmas. I want to go see the regular show later. Everyone did a great job but Elvis was awesome. I was exceptionally happy they/we all sang God Bless America at the end!

Took advantage of the 50% off night at the Holiday Hoedown. Prior to dinner and the show, we enjoyed a nice evening in their "little town" on the ranch partaking in a tractor ride, mechanical bull ride, shooting gallery, and Axe throwing (last 3 cost extra ($5 each), tractor ride included). We also chose to do an old time photo, which also costed extra ~$40 (included 1 photo and the sitting fee). There were other things to do there too including gift shopping and drinking at the "saloon". Had the irish sass drink, bun warmer, and cream ale and all were delicious. Dinner was super fun and filling - eat on a metal plate with homemade BBQ sauce. Show was very entertaining - was there celebrating both mine and my sister's birthdays and they called us on stage before the show and sang to us. Very special! Highly recommend this experience. Did notice that it was an older crowd but it still was a fun evening, would do it again!

How can I pick my favorite thing to do when EVERYTHING is awesome! I highly recommend you visiting!! Eric Williams and The Blazin M Band are so talented! Old favorites to new ones, their songs are fun! The end of the show is my favorite by far! There is so much to do from axe throwing to an old west photo and don't forget their museum, it's the best kept secret in the west! Oh and if you don't try a prickly pear margarita are you even in Arizona???? Make new friends and memories with a family friendly atmosphere! 💓

We were camping at Dead Horse state park and saw a flyer for 50% off so we thought we’d try it out. It’s a small westernish town with a saloon to purchase drinks. $10 to 15 specialty drinks. There are activities such as axe throwing, shooting range, bull riding,
All for one five dollars token. Old fashion photos six people for six five dollar photos,
Two “Grandma trap” stores one with toys one with western items.

They open the doors and heard everyone in for dinner. It really was like cattle heading through the shoot into a barn.

The tables are long. You are assigned seats.
They excuse tables for dinner to go through a buffet where you are served a specific size operation of everything. If their is food leftover you are welcome to seconds.
They throw you extra bisquits if you want them.
The food coleslaw, pinto beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, pork ribs and dark meat chicken was all tasty.

There’s allot of audience participation throughout. Clapping for restrooms was a bit much.

The show aft dinner was a mix of song, instruments, silliness and of course the anniversary, birthday stuff.
Entertaining.

We left just at before the end as my husband is in a wheelchair and we wanted to get ahead of the heard.

I thought I’d was funny that the mc was also the cook from California all band members were from everywhere but the west. One from South Africa, one from north Italy.
No try cowboys there.

I was there with my step-daughter and my husband. And it had been at least 25 years since I had been there.
We all thoroughly enjoyed it.. It was as I remembered it and the food was excellent and the band was outstanding.
It definitely is worth the money!

The performers spend time talking on stage, and it gets boring, their skids are poorly produced. Do not play traditional country songs like before, ... the seating has improved. The performances are slow and do not attract the attention of many visitors. It also seems the the new "woke" social attitudes have impacted the stage production. They do not praise the USA like before, they seem to be "afraid". We have seen the old show many times but will not come back nor recommended it like before.
