“Best of the West”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

A guest of Coldwell-Bankers "Client Appreciation Day", I was blown away ( not literally ) by the quality / taste/ flavor of the Wagon style chow we were served.
great ribs w/ Otis's secret sauce, killer slaw,biscuits with honey and butter and super tasty baked beans. What a truly satisfying meal !
The experience goes beyond top food. A wonderful Cowboy/ Cowgirl duo of acoustic playing, western themed singing and unexpected yodeling provided us with an entertaining day.
My time there was cut short with a business call, so a return trip to see roping and spend time on the property will be next.This is a gem on many levels and earns high mention.
So easy to find off the Cottonwood's Riverfront Park with generous parking and a spacious Western Barn (restaurant) with many other amenities on site.
Thanks Coldwell B and many thanks to the True Hospitality of Blazin" M ranch and staff !

“Blazin' M is a hoot! Love this place and a lot of fun!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is my fourth (4th) time attending the Blazin' M Ranch and I really enjoy this place. It is simply fun. But let me be clear, you don't necessarily go to the Blazin' M for the food but for the entertainment!

Outside they have a bunch of little shops, a petting zoo and a "tractor pull"... a little ride around the property. They want things to look old, but it appears as though a few things need to be looked at for some refurbishment, especially the animal pens and the grounds. BUT, this does not detract from the fun you will have here.

Every time I have been there, they serve coleslaw, beef, chicken, biscuits, cowboy beans water downed lemonade, tea and the meal is served buffet style in aluminum plates... cowboy style. We went when they were having a murder mystery play. And it was fun. BUT, I do prefer the cowboy singing and comedy. They did a nice job on the murder mystery.

Simply, a fun place to go, have dinner, see or participate in a show. The pluses out weigh the negatives to equal an excellent time.

“Arizona love to a Texas couple!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

A last minute idea that was worth it. We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary vacation to The Grand Canyon. We were staying near the Grand Canyon and we wanted to do something fun in Sedona, AZ. We looked at "things to do" in Sedona and saw Blazin' M Ranch that has dinner and a show. For us a dinner and show is what we like and we decided "why not"? Even the trip to Sedona from the canyon is a long drive including a short drive to Cottonwood, AZ, but the experience was worth it. The food was out of this world, almost like BBQ what we experienced back home and the show was just fun! We defiantly want to come back to this place! Trust me you'll be back!

“A bit of the Old West and Great Cowboy Music too!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Outside is a small western town with activities for both the grow-ups and the kids. The setting is alongside the Verde River with its shady mature cottonwood trees.

The grub is excellent western BBQ and ample portions in a old western barn setting and the place has an well appointed bar to boot!

But the real fun comes with the entertainment! A wonderful western group featuring cowboy yodeling and the sort of songs you remember from years ago. But there's a good bit of comedy mixed into the show and the evening performance ends with something the kids will love!

This is a terrific place to visit especially around the Halloween and Harvest seasons when the Fall temperatures are quite pleasant in the higher elevations.

This is just an old fashioned place to have some real honest fun with the entire family. You won't be disappointed.

“Blazin' M Ranch was a highlight!!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

This was one of the highlights of our USA holiday. Kids loved it, they organised a birthday cake for our son and, now back home in Australia, the kids are still talking about it and singing songs from the night. The magic flip flop hat is a favourite souvenir.
