Found this place to be excellent-right on a golf course and restaurant and bar afterwards had a nice variety of beres and drinks and the food was high quality. And there were four 4 o'clock NFL games and then had a different one on each TV. I highly recommend the pulled pork and macaroni and cheese. The pulled pork comes... More

Variety of good food with many BBQ options. We eat here a lot. You can watch the golfers, the birds, or stare at the scenery. Every employer is a delightful person. If you want to watch a sport on TV, there are always a few to choose from

Good place to unwind and refuel with a BBQ meat-oriented menu, a little pricey but par for the course

Good food and not too pricey. Lots of comfort foods. Eat on the deck at dusk and watch the havalinas come out. Located right on the course. Free shuttle from the resort. Service was excellent.

Award winning barbecue measures up to expectations. Sides are a real part of the show Bourbon Cream Corn is a must! Sports bar area was very loud durung a game but restaurant offers other seating areas if preferred including outdoor patio dining by the beautiful golf course.

The scent of the BBQ alone will make your stomach rumble. Once you taste it, you will never forget it. Delicious carne asada tacos, a mouthwatering cheeseburger AND the tastiest jalapeno biscuits! Can't wait to go back! The staff was 5 star quality and extremely accommodating!

I ate at this restaurant last year when I was in Tucson - totally unremarkable but not worth a bad review. On the advice of my server, Trisk from the JW Marriott Starr Pass, I decided to go back this year. Wow! So glad I listened to her. The food here was so good. I had the pulled pork sandwich... More

I love BBQ so following a round of golf, this sounded like a good idea. Four of us sat in the bar area which is pleasant but server (bartender) needs a little more polish... spilled water, got side dishes on wrong entrees, was absent for about 10 min when we were trying to get the bill, and then split the...

I am sad to say that this place was not our favorite on our recent stay at Starr Pass. The service was lackluster and inattentive, the flies on the patio were horrendous, the food was fair at best, and came out warm, not hot. I love the idea and the decor, and the portion sizes are ridiculously huge. I hope... More
