Build Your Own Cowboy Burger or Grilled Chicken

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 Cowboy Burger

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.

Applewood Smoked & Slow Roasted BBQ Pulled Pork

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!

Applewood Smoked & Slow Roasted BBQ Pulled Pork

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!

12 oz Prime New York Steak

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!!,

Applewood Smoked & Slow Roasted BBQ Pulled Pork

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.

Signature Baby Back Pork Ribs

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!!

The Cowboy Burger

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 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 ) !

Signature Baby Back Pork Ribs

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 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.

Gwen's Fried Chicken Sundays

It was just what I imagined a true southern fried chicken would taste like. It was crispy on the outside, moist on the inside and perfectly seasoned. I hate it when a restaurant feels like they need to season the heck out of their food. This place let the chicken be the star. I'm just disappointed that I didn't have enough room for the peach cobbler.
