We were brought here by a local colleague who knows the place well. You can learn to line dance with a genuine expert and with local people - some dressed cowboy style. The range of beer and drinks is good and the ribs were excellent. Service was efficient and nicely done. The live band was a little weak tonight. Overall,... More

As far as atmosphere, this place is great. Real cowboys! But it ends there. The food was extremely disappointing; Adam ordered the Southwest Mac and cheese. The portion size was fit for a child as was the flavor. Tastes like plain booked noodles. It's only positive was the lone slice of Apple wood bacon on top. For $9, they should... More

The atmosphere and decor are fantastic. We had never done line dancing but we showed up for the Tuesday night 6:30 class with D and had a great time. She's awesome :)

Whenever we travel, we love to check out places to line dance. I found this place online and wanted to check it out when we visited Scottsdale. It is a really cute bar with the cowboy hats along the rafters and other cute western memorabilia. The dance floor was small but Dee makes it work. We had a good dinner... More

If you love good Music, good Food, and a real classic Setup this is one of the few places that manage to fit it all together into one superb experience for guests. Wednesday night live Performance of the Herndon Brothers plus Horn section is a Highlight you'll never want to miss if you are in town. Great stuff- highly recommended

When you walk in there are old pictures along the walls & cowboy hats above. Food & drinks were very good. Seating is inside or outside. Big tv to see rodeos.

We went to Handlebar J on January 8 after reading some of the positive reviews. Once we arrived, we were seated at a small 2 person table that sits along the wall. It was cramped and next to the walkway to the bathroom. We asked about sitting at the larger tables which mostly were empty. We were told all of... More
