    Family fun entertainment
    Wanted a country vibe for our evening activities and this was what we came up with. I’ve been on a chuck wagon meal dinner in Kansas before and this was good too. The meat choices were chicken and/or ribs. I wish I had bought a container of the prickly pear bbq sauce. It made the meat tasty. Beans were ho-hum, but overall a tasty meal. I am glad they offer a senior discount. Be aware that the extras of axe throwing, sharp shooting, etc. have additional fees. We just watched others doing it while we sipped our Irish Sass (root beer with Bailey’s) This is pretty much similar to a dinner theater—for the price you get a meal and a show. Country-inspired songs and a family-friendly show
    Thanks for the review, basketsRmine! The team here at Blazin' M are thrilled to hear such good feedback!

    Above All Expectations
    My friends and I went to Sedona and it was raining so we cancelled our hikes and decided to look into best things to do when it rains and this came up with rave reviews. We got the classy cowboy package and it was well worth it. The old-timey photos were very fun to take and the escape room was short but fun. The mechanical bull and axe throwing were very enjoyable and we had multiple chances to do each of these activities, but we did skip lassoing and sharp shooting. The drinks were quite tasty and the food was great. The barbecue sauce was my favorite part of the food. The show was definitely the highlight of the night. Everyone in it was very talented and it was overall a wonderful and entertaining watch. I also want to give this place a shoutout for being very mindful of people with disabilities/mobility issues and also people of all backgrounds. This is fun for all ages (genuinely, the ages of people there ranged from elementary school aged kids to senior citizens).
    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a positive review of your experience at Blazin' M Ranch. We're glad to hear that our classy cowboy package provided a fun and enjoyable way to spend a rainy day in Sedona. It's great to hear that you had a good time with the old-timey photos, escape room, mechanical bull, and axe throwing. We're happy to know that you found our drinks tasty and the food great. Our barbecue sauce is definitely a fan favorite! We hope to see you again soon, morganmK2154KV!

    Great western food, entertainment and pre-activities
    Had a fantastic time on Valentine's Day! Road the bull, threw axes, and hit the bullseye with the COLT 45 (BB gun). Then laughed our heads off with the Spouse Whisperer after a great dinner. The staff did great escorting the hecklers out the door.

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.

We stumbled upon this place because we were camping in Dead Horse park next door. What a fun find! It has a family-owned kind of vibe, and everyone is extremely friendly who interact with the guests. We had low expectations (we're in a small town in Arizona, for gosh sakes) and the talent level was far above what we expected. Very entertaining, lots of fun before the show, and the show was great. Next time we're camping next door we won't miss it.

The evening starts off by wandering around the cute old western town, where I was able to throw a hatchet and shoot a revolver (for a small fee), enjoy a drink on the lawn and take a tractor ride around the grounds. Then we were welcomed into the dinner and show. Great service and a memorable good time.

We had a fun filled evening with grandkids ( 11 and 8)! We arrived around 5 pm and had time to explore, shoot at the shooting gallery and shop before sitting for dinner.
Picnic table seating and buffet style dining with plenty of BBQ good and fixins!
The entertainment is western, fun and funny. Great foot stomping music!
A great and memorable evening.
Plenty of parking.

You are entertained from the minute you walk in. Live entertainment for the hour and a half before dinner. Plenty of things to entertain children and shops look like an old western town. The chuck wagon dinner was very good. You could go back for seconds if you wanted too but I did not see anyone take advantage because there was plenty on your plate the first time around. The show was very entertaining. We would go back.

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.

This is not a restaurant, it's cowboy dinner theatre. If you can get your head around that concept, then you will have a really good time. We've been traveling around Arizona for almost two weeks, and this was the most entertaining evening we've had.

The evening starts with activities around the square - shopping, horseshoes, "old time" photos, and similar.

At 6:30pm, the dinner bell rings, and dinner is served. It's an all-you-can-eat BBQ (beef or chicken) dinner, with beans, applesauce, baked potatoes, and biscuits, plus coffee, tea, lemonade or water. The food is very tasty, especially for mass-produced fare. The service is also handled well, as each section is lead to get their food, and then cowboys (and girls) bring drink refills and biscuits to each table.

At 7:30pm, the show begins. By this time, almost everyone is finished eating, which helps keep the distractions down during the show. The show is an hour of cowboy music, jokes (mostly bad) and storytelling.

It is a very enjoyable way to spend an evening, and considering what some similar places charge, is fairly affordable.

We were in Sedona on the last leg of our Arizona vacation and read about Blazin M Ranch in some tourist materials we picked up at a restaurant. After reading all of the great reviews on tripadvisor we booked tickets and were not disappointed! We had a wonderful evening with our son. We arrived early and spent time enjoying the shops,the shooting gallery, playing corn hole, roping “steer,” tractor ride, etc. before the chuckwagon dinner. We really enjoyed all the food, especially the chicken, bean and prickly pear, coleslaw. The entertainers did a fantastic job and we really appreciated their emphasis on God and country, taking time to honor our veterans. All the student-age staff work there were hospitable, respectful and very pleasant to deal with. We would definitely go back if we visit Sedona again. It was a fun evening and great way to end our vacation!
