Great place in the heart of Cave Creek however I have to say; because I am personally a Green Back Packer fan through and through I prefer the Buffalo Chip next door. Give them both a try and judge for yourself.

We go here often and like to take out of town guests here for the local flavor. Dinners are always tasty from salads to hamburgers. Beer selection is also generous. Waitress was very attentive to special orders about gluten free and spices.

In the 1930s, a man with the unlikely name of Johnny Walker built a bar called the Cave Creek Corral. Walker’s creation was an instant sensation with cowboys, playboys, politicians and laborers who gathered to drink A-1 beers at wooden tables under wanted posters.Harold Gavagan and his wife Ruth bought the Cave Creek Corral in the mid 1950s. Harold was quite a character, a depression-era Irish kid, a tough, but entertaining guy. Harold’s was a favorite movie location for Hollywood, attracting the likes of Dan Aykroyd, Bob Hope, Lynda Carter, Waylon Jennings and Dick Van Dyke. Cave Creek was not a short easy ride from Phoenix, in an effort to get visitors to Cave Creek, Harold acquired a trained lion and tiger act to entertain patrons.Once visitors were at Harold’s, he was concerned that they didn’t drink and stay long enough. So the building to the east of the restaurant became a bunkhouse, renting space for over night visitors.celebrities. Enjoy the fun atmosphere, interesting people and great food every day. We feature live country and western music Thursday-Sunday nights.Take a few minutes to browse the photographs on the walls of the characters and friends that frequent Harold’s. Our Cowboy, Sunset and Patio Rooms are perfect for your next event. Weddings  Divorces  Anniversaries  Affairs Receptions  Meetings  BirthdaysHost your next party with us or we will be happy to deliver the party to you.
