I am a local… And I love going to this touristy yet funky and cool place! I always order the fried chicken… It's light… Super crispy… And do you always have enough for leftovers!

We have been going to the Horny Toad for years and have always been surprised at the quality and consistently good food served here. They are known for their fried chicken which comes as a huge plate so could be shared. I love their prime rib which is a huge serving. Looking for some fun atmosphere, this is the place.... More

The fried chicken was very good. It is never frozen and you can taste the difference. The portions are huge, so make sure you bring friends to help you eat! It has a fun ambiance to it. Definitely worth a stop.

OMG - I was in town on business and our entire group at here. Chicken was fantastic and the fudge brownie dessert was great. Don't order it for just you - bring at least 3 friends to share as their brownie and shortcake helpings are HUGE. Don't miss this place! Casual and fun.

This is a nice bar with good bar food. Stick to what they do best. Their burgers are good. Fried chicken is excellent. I wouldn't go here for a big steak or seafood entree. There are better places.

Try the fried chicken. Fresh never frozen makes a difference. The hamburger was very good as well. The salad seemed like it came from a Sysco bag but everything else seemed rather fresh. Definitely a fun place to grab a lunch.

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, I enjoyed a tasty half-chicken basket at the Horny Toad. The crispy skin and moist meat were both very enjoyable. The creamy cole slaw was also good.

But then again, we didn't have the fried chicken which I hear is something special! We had a delightful evening sitting outside and enjoying ribs, BBQ, and French fries. Nice to see they allow dogs outside too. Fun place, just the ticket for a casual night out where the food is ok and the prices are too.

Dinner at the Horny Toad was great. The portions were large and the food was cooked to perfection. I would rate this as the best restaurant in Cave Creek. There were two of us and the price including a drink each was only $40.
