Whether you’re a local craving something new or headed to town for the weekend, consider a scrumptious stop at Desert Pony Tavern, the Southwest-inspired gastropub located within Hilton North Scottsdale at Cavasson.
Desert Pony Tavern offers guests a comfortable, open-air dining experience from Executive Chef Joseph Mills, serving breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner, paired craft cocktails and an extensive beer and wine list. The restaurant hosts an array of both indoor and outdoor seating options, with the interior brimming with gorgeous woods and textures and the exterior space home of towering cactus and fire features. But one thing’s for certain–diners won’t be able to take their eyes off the exceptional views of the McDowell Mountains.
Breakfast favorites range from the hearty Aztec eggs benedict and Desert Pony enchiladas, brimming with smoked pork chorizo, to lighter eats like the ever-popular avocado toast. The all-day menu kicks things up a notch with comforting classics likes honey-dipped fried chicken, street tacos and the incredible Heritage Burger, topped with smoked cheddar, tomato, butter lettuce and red onion.
To wash down all that deliciousness, consider one of Desert Pony Tavern’s smoked Old Fashioned cocktails, mimosas, mocktails or a signature favorite (like the spicy, tequila-spiked El Monte, which serves two). For a stellar way to end the work day or kick off the evening in style, check out the restaurant’s happy hour, available Monday to Friday, 3 to 6 p.m., as well as live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
For a more casual repast, located steps from Hilton Cavasson and Desert Pony Tavern, PITCH dishes up great scratch-made fare, with a side of McDowell Mountains panoramas and dog-friendly patios.
