Me and my wife love this dish and would and will recommend to everyone as Handlebars Has been my favorite place to go in Scottsdale for over 40 years . Great food , music and dancing ( fun ) and good people ( friends ) good friends, food and fun equals good life and isn't that what we all want !!! God bless and God bless America !!! See you soon Billy and Lisa
I recently shared the mild wings with a dancing date at HJs. They were delicious!!! and who knew that eating wings with a date could be sexy, even with mild sauce, Lol. Try it, you won't be disappointed. :) I would order them again.
The cowboy burger is to die for. You add what you'd like a true build it your own. Always cooked to perfection. The fries are thin and crisp. Yum
the only thing I wanna know is : when is the Ray Herndon Trio playin' again ?

My husband & I were hungry, driving home to NW Phoenix from Tempe. Driving up Scottsdale Rd, nothing really "hit" us until I saw a listing for the Handlebar J. SOOOO GLAD WE CAME! I had the NY Strip, medium, with the Cowboy Beans & shoestring potatoes, per a recommendation from our server, Austin. My steak was cooked exactly the way I like, the beans & potatoes yummy. My husband had the Baby Back ribs with the potato wedges, sliced, which were DELICIOUS! & Cowboy Beans. For dessert we tried the special Apples in a burrito. Served with whipped cream & vanilla ice cream..... Yummmm. Neither of us had a specialty drink, opting for a Michelob Ultra (me) & a Guinness (husband). I also requested a glass of water WITH LEMON & was pleasantly pleased to actually get the lemon as too many places seem to forget it. Austin was our server, LJ helping him. So happy to have had the pleasure!! Attentive, responsive, polite. An added pleasure was the performance of Reynaldo Martine on the patio! WOW! When sitting inside, we thought it was an entire band so very surprised to see he was just him performing all of the instruments & vocals, including the harmony. I used the lady's restroom before leaving & was pleased to find an American public restroom so clean with an ambience!! After 2 weeks in Europe recently, I've been spoiled by the European restrooms & disappointed by our own back here. We'd never been to the Handlebar J, living in the NW side of the valley but, very now that we have found it, & have friends who live in the area, we will DEFINITELY return. I've already told my family & several friends. Great place, great food, great fun! And very affordable!!,
Delicious fall off the bone baby back ribs, the very best in the state. The ribs are consistently great along with a choice of many sides. Highly recommend Handle Bar J for its food,atmosphere and fun
Simply awesome! Live music on the patio, cold beer and a perfectly crafted pulled pork sandwich. Made my Friday evening! Oh - and then the band kicked in on the inside stage and I was hooked. What a find and heading back this weekend. Keep it up!!!
The best BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich I've ever had. I'm a regular and regularly indulge in this delicious dish. Great atmosphere, awesome live music with the Herndon band and fun dancing. A perfect night out.
My boyfriend and I love to spend Friday evening on the patio listening to the Joshua Stone band and indulging in beer and a suite of appetizers. Our favorites are the ribs, sweet potato fries, loaded potato skins and the quesadilla. Often times we stick around till the larger band arrives so we can do a little dancin'. The service is great and the staff is very friendly. The atmosphere at HBJ is laid back which is nice. Their crowd is a little older - the bar isn't infested with drunk 20 somethings lol. Having spent my 20s at Mr. Lucky's, for me, Handlebar J's is a nostalgic extension of that time. I wish the Joshua Stone band didn't take a summer break though!!
I go there for their Friday Fish Fry. I'm from TX, so I know a good fish fry. This is so good. I have never been disappointed.
Good fish dinner, music was good. The DJ was a bit loud.
My husband had the Cowboy Burger and he keeps talking about how good it was! (He is very picky!) It's a big, juicy burger with a delicious bun and all the trimmings. The fries and pickle are perfect to go with it. I get the grilled quesadilla with chicken and it's always awesome, added loaded potato skins with it last time and they are the best!
The best fish fry around the county!! We also get their ribs and burgers. Everything is great!!

Awesome bomb atmosphere and food live Justine
My wife just lain love the ribs; and w / good reason.....perfectly seasoned and smoked ! I had the Grilled Chicken ( gotta get my hands on the Garlic Butter recipe ).....
Raun Alosi Band
Great band. Talented band!
The ribs, of course ,are outstanding; however, I was introduced to The Burger by Danny Zelisko ( who was having his Christmas party @ HBJ's )......the best burger I've ever had ( and I'm from New York ) !
It might be the lonely rack or a full plate with sides. It's all pretty good so I have to be sure and get some to go. My neighbors absolutely loved it. She asked me to bring her just one rib to try but the next day she called to say how happy she was that I gave her so many. She's picky and gave a 5 star rate. I'll have to come back soon.
I'd heard good things, but oh my goodness...the food was better than expected...it was fantastic...the bbq ribs were so tender the melted off the bone and tasted amazing. Definitely a new favorite place of mine to grab great food.
I loved it. I'm not one to like coleslaw but your coleslaw was delicious . Your BBq pork is cooked to perfection.
Fabulous food and so much fun learning the Twp Step!!
This sandwich melts in your mouth with full smoked bbq flavoring.
never have eaten better ..., really something special,
P. S. My husband & I had the cheese crisp as an appetizer, based on how yummy it looked online. We'd found 1 made in a similar way in Payson so I was THRILLED to find 1 here. I like jalapeños on my cheese crisp, while my husband doe not & the kitchen staff made it half & half. Sooo yummy & so much closer when I'm craving 1. Also excited to learn about the country dance lessons. Seems like the Handlebar J has pretty much everything WE enjoy. Great find.
Awesome Food Awesome Country music Entertainment . Staff always Friendly Love going there
Impossible to not love these delicious quality ribs with large cut fries. Every choice on the menu is fine dining at a great price with an atmosphere unmatched! Thank you!
The loaded potato skins were delicious and im usually picky about my ranch and i give everything a 10/10
i love HBJ's Cheese quesadilla with green chilli's. It goes great with a cold beer. And it not too heavy so I can dance the night away!
We love going to HBJ, on occasion to dance AZ two step. The music is always on point and the food is always amazing! We always have a great time here.
The Fish fry is amazing and the Herndon Bros. Band is one of the best in the country. We love EVERYTHING about HBJ. ❤️

Love going to Handlebar J's! Food is great, drinks are cold and music and dancing is always the best!!! One of my favorite spots in Scottsdale!
The flavor I enjoyed on this dish was like no other. The Pork so tender and juicy with flavor my taste buds went crazy! I couldn't get over how well-cooked the pork was to perfection. I also loved how the sauce complemented the pork to make you enjoy it even more!
The "J" Steak
Great absolutely fabulous
My Margarita, sandwich, slaw & fries were pretty good; but after looking at the T-bone steak and a dinner salad -now that looked like a winner!
Super fun, hard to beat for food, service MUSIC. See you on the dance Floor.
Great old school spot that has been around since the 60s. Good food staff and atmosphere.
Only the former Mr. Lucky's on Grand Avenue had a better Friday fish fry!! We've tried ALL of them.....so we come to HBJ!!!
Very tasty and the most tender ribs I have ever had. Love them
