My family and I were at the original saloon before it burnt down. This version is very nice, much cleaner, and better organized. The service was ok...drinks were empty before refills were asked about, rushing but friendly. The food wasn't nearly as good as in the past. A limited menu with over-extended titles. The brat I ordered was a plan... More

This is a fun place to go with the family. Prices are reasonable. Lots of fun atmosphere. However, I would recommend going on the nights they have the rodeo. As far as we're concerned, you can't beat that entertainment. The food is OK, nothing fancy. But the entertainment with the rodeo was absolutely wonderful. We paid $15 to sit on... More

You have to go to the Buffalo Chip. It is one of the hottest bars in Cave Creek. It has a small rodeo aren't out back along with picnic tables and fire pits. Terrific bands and good food. The original burnt but check out the new structure. While it lost some of the ambience of the original, it is still... More

Unfortunately we could only go on a night when the bull riding was not taking place. The staff were very friendly and there was a dance class taking place. On the downside the music was a little too loud to hold a conversation. The food was in my opinion only average and one of the steaks had to be sent... More

We are so excited to see the new expansion of an outdoor venue for enjoying this beautiful area. We will be back at night to experience the "campfire"

We were eager to revisit this property. Been 10 years & a fire that destroyed it since our last stop. Being avid GB Packer fans from WI, we were disappointed to see very little in the way of what used to be known as the "Packer Bar" with little memorabilia as compared to the original. However, the food was good... More

Had a great time, a bit crowded on Fridays in the cooler months, Wednesday is the best day to go. Great house band but not a lot of room for dancing and the lines into the women's bathroom was harsh but all that aside, grab a beer and smores and sit next to the firepits. Fun.

What a fun place to go! Lots of outdoor seating. Tables inside reminded me of being in a beer garden in Prague! Live music inside...and free live rodeo in the back every Wednesday and Friday nights. We didn't eat there, but the menu looked pretty good. Seemed to be quite the local hangout with a lot of friendly people.

Popcorn makes the bar smell inviting. Always a fun crowd and food is better than most sports type bars. Beers are cold and bartenders lively and outgoing. Great people watching especially when band is playing and some excellent two steppers take to the dance floor. I am a Patriots fan so must avoid Harold's on a Steelers Sunday , place... More
