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!
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

Love this place. It's real and with great music.
Yummy. 12oz NY!
Way to spicy
The ribs were tender and tasty. It comes with a choice of sides, I chose the coleslaw and vegetable medley. Coleslaw was great, but my vegetable medley was the stage before el-Dante. I'd have these dishes again only I'd ask the vegetables be cooked.
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.
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.
I have been coming out to HBJ since I was a little girl. One of my favorite places. Coming out Friday May 3rd to celebrate my 47th birthday. Food, menu, staff and music are all the best out there!

I have been a faithful guest at HBJ's for close to 20 years. A better live music bar in the Phoenix area cannot be found. There is a strong connection to the historic, now closed, Mr. Lucky's with the regular appearance of Jay David Sloan and the Herndon brothers. Over the years I have enjoyed drop in performances by Lyle Lovett, Toby Keith, Brooks and Dunn, Hank Williams, Jr., Jesse Colter, Phil Vassar, and many others. The family atmosphere of the hosts Ron and Ray Herndon is special and a continuation of the tradition started by their dear mother, Gwen. The ribs and burgers are the best in Scottsdale. A relaxing late afternoon and evening in Spring and Fall on the large patio can't be missed with live music and great service. HBJ's is one of the last of the family owned and operated historic bar and restaurants in the Phoenix area. There are very few left. Don't miss this very rare and special music and dining experience.
