Applewood Smoked & Slow Roasted BBQ Pulled Pork

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.

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.

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!!!

Applewood Smoked & Slow Roasted BBQ Pulled Pork

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 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.

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!
