We visited here after riding the Verde Canyon RR in Clarkdale. We found it through TA. The people were really friendly and the food is great. Locally owned and operated. Wide menu selection pleased my entire family (including kids 9,11&13). We plan to go back!

Nate's cowboy cafe is a favorite of locals and for good reason. Good food and lots of it for a very reasonable price. Due to the arrival of a 40 member motorcycle group, the service was slow and the restaurant rewarded us for our wait...More
