This was a great choice to stop and get a quick lunch. The food was really good and the gal at the register taking our order was very helpful and polite. My husband had a burger with onion rings and I had a chicken sandwich...More

Big Earl's is kind of like a 50's diner (with mostly outside seating. It's in what was an old gas station in Cave Creek. We had burgers and they were great! Fires and shakes were great, too! My son lives in town and was visiting...More

Don't be put off by the cute name. Burgers and many other dishes are quite good. Beer selection is suprisingly broad. Limited indoor seating, but plenty of covered seating outdoors.

Food is quite good. Locals and tourists seem to like it. We have never been disappointed and continue to patronize them.

I hate giving bad reviews, but there's no way I would give them anything but a mediocre rating. Actually, if I had to choose between Big Earls and Wendys, I'd get the large, chocolate frosty. Hamburgers are a little pricey, and I feel like I...More

Earls is fashioned after an Ol time diner motive. Order at the cash register, grab a beer and be prepared to eat a greasy burger. The name says it all. Not expensive but if you want a real burger go over to Tonto Bar and...More

Big Earls Greasy Eats has become a landmark in Cave Creek, Arizona. We are Located in the heart of Cave Creek I was born in the 1930's and started out as a gas station. In 2002 I blossomed as Big Earls Greasy Eats. When I say "The Last HONEST Hamburger!" that is exactly what I mean. We serve all natural hormone free meat and chicken everyday. Fresh baked buns, hand chopped veggies, REAL mayo and butter. You can TASTE the difference. When you are in the neighborhood stop in for the best breakfast in town, highly talked about lunch and dinner. Wash down that meal with an ice cold beer, a glass of wine, or any drink from our FULL bar. We are looking forward to meeting you, serving you, and having you become our friend. Love Earl & The Earls Crew
