Signature Baby Back Pork Ribs

I have unfortunately moved to AR and can no longer relish in their ribs. I spent many a birthday at HJ and miss it a lot. The ribs are fantastic. Haven't found anything to compare here. You used to have a side, bbq sauerkraut. If you still have the recipe would love to have it. Please. ❤️

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

The food was absolutely AMAZING. The service staff was very prompt and courteous. We absolutely love the music of J. David Sloan and have known him over 50 years. Your other entertainment is above par. We so enjoy our visits to your restaurant. KUDOS to the Staff for a job well done with consistency.

Fall of the bone ribs just like my grandpa used to make them...maybe better! Sorry grandpa! Very generous portion of ribs with a choice of sides. I would highly recommend!

The Cowboy Burger

Perfectly cooked and served warm with an abundance of hot skinny fries. It was delicious. I saw lots of good choices on the menu and can't wait to try some new dishes soon. Loved the patio atmosphere with tables that are far enough apart to feel very comfortable in the setting.

Buffalo Chicken Wings

Fantastic wings, meaty, great texture and taste. And of course throw in cold beers and live music, a great way to spend an afternoon on the patio.

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!

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

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!

Enchilada Platter

While known for their ribs you are not going to be disappointed with any menu item, but I need to show respect to the Enchiladas!! Yee haw someone knows how to give them the flavor that will leave your taste buds wanting more! I have been coming to this family own restaurant since we arrived from Cody, Wyoming in 1979. Everyone owes it to themselves to become acquainted with the terrific menu, outstanding music and the Herndon hospitality that has kept this establishment the rare Arizona jewel it is!

Buffalo Chicken Wings

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

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.

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!!

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

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!
