CAVE CREEK, Arizona – A lot of tourists and a lot of locals eat at Cave Creek Smokehouse and Pour House Patio in the small town of Cave Creek. It was about dinner time last night when a full sized bobcat decided to seat himself inside the restaurant. “We were just sitting at the table and people were like oh look at that kitty sitting out there? And the people close to the window were like, ‘I don’t think it’s a kitty’,” said Margo Stavroplos.”I was at a table, checking the tables to see how everything was and one of the tables said ‘hey, do you know you have a bobcat outside looking out the window?’,” said Kirsten Huebsch. So like any good manager, Stavroplos calmly walks away, finds her work colleagues, and says, “There’s a bobcat! Excuse me! There is a bobcat on the back porch!”
There were about 20 people in the dining room when the cat came in from outside and perched himself on the patio table. But it’s not his first visit. He’s made a cameo a few times in the last week.”One of my dishwashers said he thought he had seen him back there before, just back in the back area by the chapel,” said Kirsten Huebsch.
Once everyone realized what was going on, they lined up along the window and started snapping pictures.”So he was about this tall from the head you know. Again, just sitting here looking out the window,” said Kirsten Huebsch.
And like any other cat, he decided when to come and after about ten minutes, when to go. With an audience watching, he trotted outside like he had been there a thousand times.”Wonder how it would have paid its tab right!,” said Kirsten Huebsch.
CAVE CREEK – The Cave Creek Smokehouse and Pour House in Frontier Town embodies all that is Cave Creek. It’s warm and friendly, certainly has a rustic flair, the food is tasty and the drinks flow. The Smokehouse is under new ownership; Kyle and Kirsten Huebsch took over in early September. They are delighted to be back in the restaurant business after having previously owned Creekers Territorial Grill.
Other than great food, what’s on tap? Randi Smelko shared, “We go there every Tuesday night!” Tuesdays, diners can get in on the fun of Mel’s auction. Enjoy local talent on Wednesday with an open mic. Thursday offers up a trivia game night. Friday and Saturday nights live music featuring various bands is available.
Check out the Smokehouse’s Facebook page for details.
With a name like the Smokehouse, foodies can expect barbeque along with American cuisine. “That’s what we do,” Kyle explained, “All of our meats are smoked anywhere from six to 16 hours.” Diners’ favorites? Ribs, burgers, nachos and smoked brisket lasagna. For those who may want lighter fare, try the salad bar. The offerings change daily, but every delectable morsel is fresh and in-season. Wash down your meal with one of 12 beers on tap or one of the many other libations at the bar.
If you opt for outdoor seating on the Pour House patio, take note, smoking is still permitted.
Have an event? “We can accommodate up to 500 people,” Kirsten added. There’s a lovely courtyard and even a wedding chapel to experience a true western betrothal.
Look for online holiday specials by visiting their website at cavecreeksmokehouse.com. There’s a surf and turf New Year’s Eve dinner for $29 a couple! It’s likely the best value around.
The Cave Creek Smokehouse is located at 6245 E. Cave Creek Rd. in the heart of Cave Creek.

First, it was Silver Spur Saloon. Then, it was Crazy Ed’s Satisfied Frog. Then, it was Silver Spur again. But now, the legendary restaurant in Cave Creek’s Western-themed Frontier Town has new owners, and is called Smokehouse and Pour House.
As their first order of business, proprietors Kirsten and Kyle Huebsch removed most of the former eatery’s Mexican dishes and added an extensive array of fire-cooked burgers, meat platters and even lasagna.
To accomplish all that, they installed a smoker in what Kirsten calls “the size of a VW bus” in the back of the property.
The menu now includes chicken chipotle pasta and hand cut filet mignon. Smoker staples include a pulled-pork barbecue sandwich, ham sliders, a “Double Barrel” fullpound burger with cheese and green chile, beef and pork ribs, and lasagna quadruplelayered with smoked brisket.
The ramshackle-chic wood floors and dark, friendly bar remain the same.
As for the full story on the name change and property history, prepare for a complicated yarn:
- 1971: The cowboy-style restaurant and watering hole opens as the Silver Spur Saloon.
- 1983: It becomes Crazy Ed’s Satisfied Frog under new owner Ed Chileen.
- February 2008: Landlords Beverly and Marc Peagler take over management of Satisfied Frog.
- September 2008: The Peaglers switch the name back to Silver Spur but continued to serve the same menu.
- February: Satisfied Frog opens as Little Frog on Bell at 28th Street and Bell Road.
- April: Cody’s Smokehouse and Grill opened just down the road from Frontier town, near Cave Creek and North Spur Cross roads. Yet that Smokehouse is different from the Huebsch’s Smokehouse, and is, in fact, going now by the simpler name of Cody’s.
- June: Little Satisfied Frog becomes Satisfied Frog on Bell when it’s bought by Dave LaFave and Deb Wood-LaFave, a married couple who were 20-year veterans and former managers of the original Crazy Ed’s site.
