I haven't stopped here in 20 years and it still has the same great location and old west atmosphere but it's not really a restaurant anymore, it's now a burger and fries, with a bar, kind of place. The burgers and fries are okay, better than McDonalds, but then you can have a cold beer here, The chili is at least as good as the canned stuff you can buy at a grocery store to put on hot dogs, Which is to say "why do they bother?" Stop here for a snack or a cold one but if you're going out to eat, this probably isn't going to be the experience you're hoping for.

My family and I were in Cave Creek over Christmas and ate twice at the Horny Toad. The fried chicken was the best I have ever had. Period.

Very cool place!! Tons of character, very cozy and family friendly. We asked a local guy from a speed shop we visited where to go for lunch, and he sent us to this super cool restaurant. He claimed they had the best fried chicken in the State!! Well, he may be right! Go try it!!!

Southwestern theme with wood floors and heavy wood furniture. Booths that were comfortable and more private. Enjoyed the basic chili and burger. Just what we wanted - a decent burger without all the extra sauces and unusual toppings that didn't cost $15. Service was prompt and friendly.

Save room for the strawberry shortcake or the apple cobbler with ice cream - plenty big enough to split 2 or 3 ways.
