The Horny Toad celebrates 40th anniversary


CAVE CREEK – The Horny Toad will celebrate its 40-year anniversary on Saturday, Sept. 17. The celebration will feature specials on food and drinks, as well as live entertainment and prizes.

The celebration will feature prices rolled back 40 years on its famous fried chicken and strawberry shortcake. In addition to the price roll back, The Blues Hounds will entertain from 2-6 p.m., taking guests back to the music of the 1970s, when The Horny Toad first began doing business. To add to the fun event, guests are encouraged to wear their favorite attire from the 70s era and can compete to win one of three prizes being offered for best wardrobe from the timeframe.

Members of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association, known as the Arizona Gunslingers, who share a common interest in preserving the history of the Old West, will demonstrate their shooting skills and assist event visitors interested in learning to shoot.

“The Horny Toad is the oldest, originally-owned restaurant in Cave Creek,” said Jeff Price, managing partner. “Years ago, people rode their horses to our establishment and tied them right outside. From the beginning to today, I have been blessed with a dedicated management team and the most committed wait staff around.”

The Horny Toad is located at 6738 E. Cave Creek Road, in Cave Creek. For more information, call (480) 488-9542 or go online to
