The Buffalo Chip Saloon and Steakhouse is been back better than ever with the newly built (2016), full service restaurant and bar serving fantastic BBQ and other specialty food treats. Families also find the Buffalo Chip extremely friendly to them too offering unique experiences and entertainment. The "old west" comes to life at the Buffalo Chip Saloon and Steakhouse and... More

Popular, by it's reputation, and a long time in the area. Food appeared to be Tex-Mex, which we do do particularly like. Have not been there post fire damage and not my style.

A real scene from the old west - western saloon theme, good food + a live small scale rodeo. Adult bull riding and young kids riding sheep. Good family outing

This was such fun and a taste of the west. Loved it. Can't wait to go back next time we go to Scottsdale.

We went here for dinner and the rodeo. Great way to spend the night. The wings were great as were the cheese curds. Mushrooms weren't rated as high. The pulled pork sandwich was a real winner with two of the guys. The bratwurst was huge. The fish tacos were also a hit. Gets very crowded so go early or make... More

We just went here, 3 adults and 2 kids, to see the mini-rodeo (on Wednesday and Friday nights.). Well, the service was great, food not too good, but then.....the whole rodeo thing! We signed up to have our pictures taken on the actual REAL bull, while he was still in the chute. It was so thrilling - I wanted to... More

Tragically on Thanksgiving Day of November 15 the Chip burnt down. Out of the ashes comes the new Buffalo Chip. The Chip is a worth a visit as it is one of the oldest bars in town. Very good fried chicken and other south west fare. Also known for its Rodeo on Wednesday and Friday nights, were you can watch... More

We came here after horse back riding and had a great time. The food was good (ribs, wings, s'mores, beer). We got to watch a goat roping contest and hear some great country music.

In Phoenix for a soccer tourney. Someone suggested we take the team to Buffalo Chips. They had a blast. Many had never seen a rodeo and I have never seen sheep riding or Mutton Busting as they call it. It was also bikers weekend. Food was good and reasonably priced. The rodeo is free on Fridays. The process of ordering... More

We met here with a group of friends after a wedding rehearsal. It's not the best place if you want to have conversations with those you are with. We got the bar-b-que. It was ok, not great. It was really packed so we didn't really get to see the bull riding. There was also a band playing and they were... More
