Went here twice for dinner while staying in Apache Junction. Both times we had their daily special. Smoked wings and then smoked ribs. Fantastic! Great food and service. Able to eat outside after a short wait on a busy Fruday night.

Enjoyed a great lunch with a nice choice of foods. I loves the fact that some of the sides were healthy. I had the smoked sweet potato and it was great. Will definitely go back.

Stopped by on a recent trip to hike the Superstition Mountains. We'd been on the trail for 6 hours that day, so we cleaned up and headed out for some food. The Handlebar came highly recommended by our Hotel Staff, and it didn't disappoint. MY...More
