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

Dee is a wonderful dance teacher and we laughed and enjoyed trying to learn how to dance. Fried food, beer and wine that isn't too bad! It's all about the dancing!

This place burned down last year and has only been open again for a couple weeks. Great open area with rustic theme. During NFL season if you aren't a Green Bay fan, it's not the place for you. The Packers are on every TV and the whole place is full of cheeseheads! We had the beef brisket street tacos and... More

The old Chip was cool, but the new version after the fire is awesome. Much more open, outdoor area is great, still have the bull riding and the smoked meat and BBQ is still as good as it gets. The only downside is weekend parking. If u try Harold's next door, they make u pay 10 bucks to park but... More

We visited. Buffalo Chip Saloon last Saturday. The atmosphere is great, our food was wonderful, and we had a blast. Our party included 8 adults and 4 children. They had so much fun after dinner when we went out back and listened to music. The kids had a so much fun petting the horses and just being kids. The prices... More

We were in Cave Creek for the weekend performing for Wild West Days. After a long weekend decided to go to the Chip for dinner. There were 5 adults and 2 kids. The inside was so loud (football) we decided to go outside. Once we found a waitress we were told outside was self service. But, she would take our... More

The newly rebuilt saloon was a disappointment. It is rustic - but that is about it. Ordred hamburgers and a beer. Two of the hamburgers, ordered medium, came rare. The burger was browned, but the inside was pink. French fries were average at best. Service help was O.K., but very casual. Maybe during a Packers game the place would be... More
