I order this a lot. It's delicious and a good portion too.
No three is nothing better than The Horny Toad fried chicken. Get the whole chicken dinner and have enough leftovers for lunch the next day.Best burgers and steaks in Cave Creek. BBQ pork ribs are also a long time favorite. Great staff and excellent service. Don't forget to checkout the Christmas store
The Carne Asada is delicious.
Had the Fried Chicken Sandwich, did it buffalo style, it was incredible! The chicken breast was almost twice the size of the bun!! Home-made ranch dressing and delicious fries made for a meal that almost filled me up for the entire day. Also had a bite of the fish and chips (the best I have ever had), and the wings are delicious too! All their sauces are made from scratch, just to die for!! I highly recommend this restaurant, it was delicious!!!
Chicken Caesar was outstanding.Fresh and savory. Prime rib dinner was sooooo good You have to try it. You will not regret it THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had had HT fried chicken years ago, then when we went to the 4 Season's in Scottsdale they offered Fried Chicken and waffles... so I had to compare... HT Fried Chicken is hands down the best around. It is a hidden juicy gem and I highly recommend you try it once... you'll never find a better recipe for Fried Chicken anywhere, even at Lolo's... Our next favorite is their PRIME RIB when available.
We absolutely LOVE the fried chicken. So moist and perfectly fried and to top it off, a very generous portion. Our favorite thing to do is to buy fried chicken the day before we head to Bartlett Lake. Eating cold fried chicken while sitting on a pontoon with a glass of champagne in hand is living a beautiful life. Highly recommend everyone give it a try! Thank you Horny Toad!
We have been coming to horny toad since 2012, anytime we stay at rancho menana it's always a treat to eat at this restaurant. The food is amazing every time, never ever had an issue!!!
I Got home from work today to find my wife having her first pregnancy food craving...fried chicken. So I told her to google a place known for that. She found a place up in Cave Creek called "The Horny Toad." It was a 30 minute drive for us, we live in Phoenix, but well worth the drive! AMAZING fried chicken! The staff was friendly! The service was great! Cute old west looking place! We will go back! We have found a staple & whenever guests visit us from out of town, we are taking them here! Thank you Horny Toad! We love you!
This has been a staple restaurant since I've been a little boy. Now 30 years old still the recipe and people have not changed one bit. This place has the best fried chicken In Arizona. A true Wild West spot! Thank you from my family for all the good times.
The reuben was excellent
We always enjoy the fried chicken mean. It never disappoints.
I remember as a kid every Sunday waiting for my grandmas fried chicken . I felt like I was back in her kitchen when I had the fried chicken dinner at the Horney Toad . Hands down a must order !!!
I had the chicken taco salad and it was fresh and the chicken was delicious. I highly recommend this dish.
Absolutely the best friend chicken in Arizona! We love this place! Friendly service, great outdoor seating area and great food at reasonable prices.
I have enjoyed the Icelandic Cod for over 25 years and is the BEST in have found anywhere. Our old neighbors and my wife and I came twice a month to enjoy the all you can eat Friday fish fry and at that time was $9.95 and even though the price has risen you cannot beat the Horny Toad's fish. Coming there 5/14 for my birthday and I am having the fish.
Delicious food and wonderful service. Michelle is a doll and this is a favorite go-to for our family. You won't be disappointed. A gem of a place.
The BEST ever!
Delicious! Nice big platter left me full and satisfied! Service terrific.. will be back and then back again!
We ordered the special $0 Family Deal and was very pleased. The fish was very fresh and freshly fried, the fries were terrific. This is a dish that has to be served very hot, and they did a great job of preparing so we got home with a hot meal. Great job Horny Toad! We're coming back for the Family Deal on fried chicken next!
Best Hamburger ever !!! I like the fries with the side salad.
The best in Az ! Moved to Az in 1978. First visited here 8/78'. Tried the fried chicken and was blown away..Not only was it crispy, it was juicy too. Golden brown and each piece was tops. Delicious is an understatement! Coleslaw was tops and fries were great. Now you get a whole chicken, so you better bring someone to help you finish.. been coming here over 40 years and never had a bad lunch or dinner!! Also the strawberry shortcake is indescribable . Huge portion and a ton of whipped cream! This place, Horny Toad, is a must place to go !! Rod M. Gold Canyon, Az.
I will take you back to the summer of 1989. It was a hot summer night in July. I had just flew in from New Jersey and was driving from Phoenix airport to Carefree. I hadn't eaten and it was getting late. I drove into Cave Creek and being the middle of summer, not much was open. Even Dairy Queen was closed. I pulled into the parking lot of The Horny Toad and went inside. Not a customer in the place. A woman came out and said they were closed. I explained that I just flew in from out of town and hadn't had anything to eat, pretty much all day. She told me to sit down and she went into the kitchen. Fifteen minutes later she emerged with a basket of the best fried chicken I've ever had. I've been a loyal customer for the past 30+ years. If they cared that much about feeding an out of town customer, you can only imagine how much they care about their food.
This restaurant is a landmark in Cave Creek, AZ. It's always been terrific and a great place to take people from out of town. There is a new owner and everything is the same, just better! Super clean, super friendly nice staff. They genuinely want you to be happy and enjoy your meal. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Try the favorites, or something different. They know how to make awesome food. We had the fried chicken and coleslaw today, even better then last time! Thank you HT for continuing the tradition and doing it so well!
This is THE best fried chicken I've had in 20 years, and the last time was from a friends southern Grandma! Always fresh and juicy. I have honestly never ordered anything else when going to the Horny Toad. I just can't get past the chicken.
Service and food were awesome!! Good place to eat.
Amazing! Always consistent in food quality, been coming here for 20 years - the absolute best fried chicken in Phoenix. Always recommend horney toad to out of towners for consistently good Quality food cooked from scratch and great service.
Wonderful hand made patty with Swiss. Cooked just right, and the best fries around. The place has a great feel, warm and inviting and fun. The service is friendly and spot on.
Very tasty will order again
This is the best fried chicken I've ever had and I am old! Our friends had a hamburger and they thought that was really yummy! We love The Horny Toad!!!
Awesome as always!!
My favorite fried chicken in the valley. Awesome price for whole or half chicken. Best coleslaw around too that is perfect with fried chicken. Crisp and juicy!! Not greasy
Bery generous portions. Cooked the way we asked. One of our favorite dishes at HT
Yummers .... one of my favs. Actually we go for what we call a "lunder" (between lunch and dinner) I like when " All you can eat" is featured ... Fried Chicken with coleslaw, mash potatoes and gravy on the side!! The fried chicken is always cooked to perfection. Really would prefer that the gravy was 'milk gravy' instead of brown gravy. However, I did notice that was not listed on your UPCOMING SPECIALS. Still, looking forward to dining with you again.
steak was grilled perfectly, i added the sauteed mushrooms and onions, the mashed potatoes and gravy are my favorite go to side and i reccomend the strawberry shortcake for dessert (the half portion is definitely enough for one person!!!)
Dee-lish! We've had these ribs several times & love them. We always like to take out of town visitors up to the Horny Toad for some ribs, & they're never disappointed!
If I'm going to have fried chicken . . . it will only be at The Horny Toad. It is crispy, not greasy and cooked to perfection. Don't forget the cole slaw and mashed potatoes (with gravy of course) that come with it are a must have as well. Complete meal with chicken for 2 more nights!!!
