Upscale surf 'n' turf joint wrapped in a Sonoran ranch house theme. The place does a few things right other than atmosphere: spicy house sausage made from beef, elk and buffalo; ahi nachos with Manchego cheese; and a chocolate cowboy s'more that'll give diabetics a death wish. Is it worth driving all the way out to Cave Creek to eat there? Probably not. But if you've always wanted to see the jumbo sundial in nearby Carefree, you could do worse for a same-day dinner.
