Very limited seating inside on a rainy day. During sunny days they have a lot more outdoor seating. The cheeseburger was excellent on a nice fresh bun. The pencil spice fries were very good as well. Definitely recommend this place.

We both had the mushroom Swiss burger $7.99 and fries $1.99. The hamburger was cooked perfectly and placed on a nice fresh unique bun with all the trimmings. I would order it again in a heartbeat, if only I lived closer. The fries I would pass on. They tasted as if they were fried in the same oil as other... More

If you like good, old fashion style, breakfast, good coffee, and a Cave Creek flair, Big Earl's is the place to go. My favorite breakfast place in the entire Phoenix area; plus their hamburgers are the best tasting and best value in the Valley. Come visit Brooke, best waitperson around, and Andrew, lead cook - you will not be disappointed.... More

This is a diner where you can eat outside and watch the horses and motorcycles go by! Breakfast burritos, chicken sandwiches, burgers are all excellent. Brooke and her team provide good food and ambience with beach volleyball in the back! Have a vanilla malt - they are fantastic!

Cute place to get a good burger. They also have other kinds of sandwiches and beer as well. The service here is a little slow. You order your food, where there is only 1 line and can take 15 mins, and then sit down and they bring your food out to you. The food is great but don't go here... More

We stopped in for lunch and had the Cajun Chicken and Big Kahuna Chicken sandwiches. Both were very tasty. While not huge, they made for a satisfying meal. There is a rather large selection of beer, just be aware that they are bottled or canned. We did not see any draft beer. Service was excellent, personable and professional. Food arrive... More

Here in Oct 2016 I had the Kobe beef burger medium and it was good, but it was super salty not sure why. Wife had the mushroom burger and said it was amazing. One weird thing saw the staff eating fries out to the fryer with there hands, not sure if that is very sanitary. Anyway worth checking out, would... More
