~Steakhouse and Saloon~

Herndon Family Owned and Operated Since 1975


Herndon Brothers


Scottsdale’s last Authentic Western Style Steak House and Saloon, the world famous, HandlebarJ, is a one of a kind place, not a corporate chain.

A Scottsdale landmark, and a local favorite. A must see for out of towners. Since 1966, the HandlebarJ has been one of the most popular authentic western places to go, and still is to this day.

In the heart of north Scottsdale (“The West’s Most Western Town”) we serve mouth watering steaks, bar-b-que ribs, corn on the cob, homemade biscuits, and lots more… by a friendly staff, who are here to serve your every need.

We have a beautiful patio where you can relax under the Arizona sky, enjoy a Porter House Steak, and listen to our live country music 7 nights a week. Or stay inside, where our dining room is cozy and the dance floor is fun for plenty of Arizona Two Steppin’.

If you’d like to “hang your hat” in the Handlebar, you’ll be in good company, where a slew of hats hang from the rafters, from old cowboys who have bellied up to the bar since 1966 (with name tags and all).

The Herndon Our house band, The Herndon Brothers, Arizona favorites for 20+ years, perform Wednesday through Saturday starting at 7:30 pm. We also have Live music on our beautiful patio starting at 4:30pm on Fridays.

Various bands and entertainment on Tuesdays and Sundays. We have FREE Arizona two-step lessons Thursday and Saturday at 6:30pm; Line dance lessons on Tuesday starting at 6:30pm ($5 per person goes directly to instructor). (schedule subject to change, please call for confirmation, check out our calendar page).

Let us host your next private party, corporate function or luncheon, just let us know a little in advance. (480) 948-0110

Ask anyone who has ever been to Scottsdale about HandlebarJ, most likely they’ve been here, and will highly recommend it.

Come see for yourself. You’ll have a ball!!!!
