Great atmosphere, lively music, friendly staff.We had photos taken with our own cameras by a member of staff in the bar which was good. We enjoyed looking downstairs in the shop.

“Fun atmosphere and excellent brisket”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We had a great time at Big Nose Kate's! Our server dressed us up and took our picture with our camera on the piano for free (we tipped her). They had live music in the middle of the day. The brisket was very tender and tasty. A fun place to take a break from the heat!

“Nice but Touristy”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We were a little disappointed with glitz and glitter and would have liked a little more authenticity...but it's a nice place.

“Best Brisket and Atmosphere for the wild west”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

What a fun place and now our favorite place to eat and drink in Tombstone! Went there Friday night 7/12/13 after reading reviews on it. Most of you got it right! We had the Brisket which was melt in your mouth tender. The also had good cold beer and great entertainment! Saturday we went to Crystal Palace around 2:30 in the afternoon for a drink and waited about 15 minutes for someone to come serve us. Finally we gave up and headed back to Big Nose Kate's got immediate great service, even if the waiter was teasing me about my choice of drink! Same talented entertainer. Even more fun was locals who were dressed in period costume were hanging out. Sunday went back for lunch. One of my friends had pulled pork and said it was best ever. I confirmed the brisket wasn't a fluke! On this visit we got to meet the owner who was a kick! He even pulled me behind the bar and made clean the bar and had try to spin guns like the old gunslingers. Big failure but lots of fun. Overall best restaurant in my book for Tombstone and just a fun place for friends and family to dine and enjoy!
