You must visit this old traditional cowboy pub. The live music was excellent with the guitarist / singer was just the best. He took requests and rattled off anything from Jackson Browne to James Taylor to Garth Brooks. Staff excellent and got us a taxi...More

The Rusty Spur is a small, rude, hole in the wall. Bartender had one emotion, none. Give him a tip and still nothing. Don't sit near the "locals" table at the front of the bar unless you want to be harassed and moved when the...More

One of our favourite stops when visiting Old Scottsdale! The food is very good, (great burgers), and the atmosphere along with live country music makes for a great time!!! We will be back!

I love the Rusty Spur. I've been going there for many years. In recent years, it has become surrounded by newer less-Western venues, but it lives on! A great place for locals and travelers alike for casual fun, cold beer, and good food.

The Rusty Spur Saloon is a good time! The swinging saloon doors outside to enter started the fun! Inside is a cowboy decor with live music and libations. We enjoyed our time here!

I've now been to this place three times in six months and my initial impression remains the same: Kitchy decor, surly bartenders, and unmemorable food, and yet the place is always crowded with locals and tourists. I give the place three stars solely because of...More
