This appears to be a great place to visit on a beautiful day. All walls were open when we were there on a 60 degree day. Fun atmosphere. Service was great as we were taken care of. BBQ sauce was fantastic... Family played the big wood block game of tic tac toe. Green Bay Packer territory for sure. Would be... More

How do you make a long story short? We had reservations for a large group. The place has bar height tables and regular. As the large regular height table was reserved by others, we asked for the tall one and a table for 4 regular height due to mobility restrictions. We get there, no regular height reserved. After considerable discussion,... More

We went to Buffalo Chip for the rodeo and BBQ buffet. Neither one disappointed. Make sure you dress warm enough - the rodeo is outside and the restaurant itself is open air. Great food, service and entertainment!

We travelled to cave creek on a Tuesday excited to dine in the area due to the amount of authentic country roadhouses, we chose this one before moving onto three other venues and were greeted with the same unwelcoming and intimidating environment. The food sounded good on the menu and was reasonably priced, however as we walked through the door... More

Visited the Buffalo Chip Saloon after it rebuilt do to fire. It is a full bar saloon. Staff is great and attentive. We had fish taco's and brisket sandwich; both were flavorful. The menu was small compared to other barbeque places in Cave Creek and/or Saloons. With the small menu and overall barbeque quality I am not drawn back. Just... More

We are so glad they rebuilt this place after the fire. We love the atmosphere and fun. We used to come weekly for the pulled pork sandwich for lunch. Since reopening, it is not the same. The quality of the pork has gone down. It is more fatty and grizzly. We will still go for the drinks but pass on... More

Have to go at least once when the rodeo is on, unlimited (and very good) barbeque dinner is only $15.00. Loved the brisket. Bars are very busy but service is good. Outside patio is fun and then you get to watch real bull riding!

This place has always been a favorite of mine! Live bull riding every Friday night, multiple bars, live bands, fire pits in the cool, and a great place to watch or learn to dance. This was my first visit since the fire, and it isn't up to its usual fun just yet, but it's trying! Still a great time and... More

Recommended by a colleague. Food was ok, not much flavor unless you wanted to put a bunch of sauce on it. Enjoyed the novelty of the place but buffet was not a good value. The menu looked decent though. Disappointed expecting better food for as busy as it was.

The Buffalo Chip is our favorite place. I had the fried chicken dinner tonight and it was delicious. The Margarita was smooth the way I like them. We love the bull riding - like being at a western Rodeo. Best band in town to dance to. Great decor and cool Western artifacts. We had good service and I thought prices... More
