The patty melt was pretty good, but the burgers were all a bit over cooked. Pretty much what you’d expect for a little burger joint except for the adult cocktail milkshakes, which were super tasty! Great beer selection and quite a few food choices for...More

The restaurant is in a neat setting with nostalgic pieces of art. It’s a fun stop for that. We both ordered the burger with the grilled pineapple. Meat was charred black on one side and still a little pink in the middle. It was not...More

Big Earl knows burgers and serves them up in the interesting ambience of a former gas station. The pump is still there. The beef is first quality. The sides are great and the “fixins”on the burgers are interesting and give them superb flavoring. Onion rings...More

Love this patio as it puts you right in center of active Cave Creek. Locally owned & managed, great burgers and filling breakfasts. Must try French fried French toast.

Big Earls Greasy Eats has become a landmark in Cave Creek, Arizona. We are Located in the heart of Cave Creek I was born in the 1930's and started out as a gas station. In 2002 I blossomed as Big Earls Greasy Eats. When I say "The Last HONEST Hamburger!" that is exactly what I mean. We serve all natural hormone free meat and chicken everyday. Fresh baked buns, hand chopped veggies, REAL mayo and butter. You can TASTE the difference. When you are in the neighborhood stop in for the best breakfast in town, highly talked about lunch and dinner. Wash down that meal with an ice cold beer, a glass of wine, or any drink from our FULL bar. We are looking forward to meeting you, serving you, and having you become our friend. Love Earl & The Earls Crew
