What’s a Horny Toad? (Someone always gets in a nasty chuckle). Maybe to Easterners, it’s a frog anxiously waiting an answer to a mating call. Some other innocent soul might visualize a frog with spikes. Well, they are answers, but a man named Webster put in a lot of research and when he published his book telling what things meant, however wrong, he came up with  “…any of several, small, scaly insect-eating lizards of the family Iguanidoe, genius Phrynosoma, whose body somewhat resembles that of a toad or frog. The body is rough, the tail is short, the head furnished with horny spikes.”

 

The Horny Toad restaurant has earned numerous awards for our made from scratch famous Fried Chicken and homemade secret BBQ sauce.  Other award winning specialities include the BBQ Chicken, Pork and Beef Ribs and mesquite grilled steaks including New York Strip, Top Sirloin, Rib Eye, and Prime Rib.  And save room for dessert as our Strawberry Shortcake was awarded  Best Dessert by New Times Magazine.

The Horny Toad restaurant is the oldest, original restaurant in Cave Creek, Arizona  and has been the location for many  “Old West” movies and photo shoots. Enjoy the beauty of the Sonoran desert as you dine from the expanded patio or experience the multiple interior dining rooms and Saloon. Live entertainment  and music is offered seasonally for those who want to kick their heels up.
