“OMG you have to eat here!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

If you are visiting make this your first stop. The only bad thing is we went on Friday to have ribs & they only have it on Saturday. Yes, definitely coming back tomorrow.
Clam chowder is the bomb, clams so tender you almost don't need to chew. French fries taste just like the old fashion potatoes mom made, tenderloin is like 3 sandwiches in one, the green chili cheeseburger was out of this world, along with the fried chicken livers & sweet potato fries.
The service was excellent never a dry drink glass, dirty plates cleaned immediately, & all the servers check on you as they pass by, truly concerned about any of your needs.

Thank Brande57

“Happy find”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Decided to check out the city of Payson being fairly new to Arizona. It was a nice day trip from Queen Creek, Az. Not sure where to eat, we were wanting an afternoon cocktail so we looked for a bar & grill. We saw this place and really enjoyed it. The service was friendly and constant. Decor was fun western! We went around 2:00pm on a Saturday, assuming it wouldn't be busy. It was nice and steady, a good sign. I had a grilled pastrami sandwich which I asked for on sour dough with pepper jack cheese, tasty. They were more than happy to accommodate! Hubby had a bacon cheeseburger which was good. We had fries with one, onion rings with the other, all good. Drinks were inexpensive and good. Prices great, whole bill was $27.00 or so! Will go again.

“Good burger but a Breaded Tenderloin to make Midwesterners Proud!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Grabbed dinner at the Buffalo Bar & Grill and found it to be really good. The ambiance is that of a bar or saloon, with a nice western feel to it. Lots of locals and good, casual ambiance just relaxing on the Tuesday evening that we were there. My wife got the buffalo burger, which was good although she said she wished the patty was a little bit thicker. Being from Indiana and living in Arizona, I don't get a true breaded tenderloin that much, but they had one! Trying it, the sandwich was large and just like you'd expect...flattened out and super large! Worth trying if you love breaded tenderloin! The servers were all also exceptionally friendly and courteous. Will definitely keep this in mind for a good, local place to get lunch, dinner, or drinks when we are back in Payson.

“Food was OK, service was lacking”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

I must have been expecting something much better than what they had to deliver! Our server stopped by our table once, and then was not seen again. I would have liked to have made a slight change on my order, but that didn't happen due to lack of opportunity. No one stopped by the table until we got our orders, then the sandwiches were on the wrong plates. My friend had a broken drink cup, and soda dripped everywhere. She had to wait almost 10 minutes at the bar just to tell someone and get another soda. No one ever came to clean up the mess. Another server happened to check on us, and she cleaned it up at least 20 minutes after it was reported. The food was just OK. I had a chicken philly sandwich, and the chicken was dry and several peppers tasted strange. The fries were very good and crunchy. I liked the decor and the place seems like it would be fun for having a beer. Hard to judge the food after one sandwich, but the service was obviously not organized.

“good for sports, not food”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We went to Buffalo bar after doing some hiking in payson. Good for watching sports, but we orders a cheese burger, it had a hair in it, it was melted in the cheese. The chicken fingers didnt do much for us either. I would stop and eat somewhere first, then go for drinks and a foot game only. Staff was super nice though, always a plus!
