“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

If you are in search of a historic property with a great southwestern setting then you should make a reservation. During season the outdoor dining is the place to sit. Large outdoor area has umbrellas, heaters, and a huge fountain. More of a romantic place at night, but you are able to eat in the bar which is small. Cocktails are great and on certain nights there is courtyard music.

“Patio dining at Lon's in Paradise Valley, AZ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

One of my favorite restaurants in the Phoenix metro area is Lon's at the Hermosa Inn. I love taking out of town friends & family to Lon's. It is fun to tell them about the history of this authentic adobe hacienda that was built in the 1920s by Lon Megargee. He was a cowboy, artist, and gambler, and enjoyed entertaining his friends. Lon added tunnels to his house so his friends could run out to the desert in case there was a raid for illegal gambling.
Now Lon's is a spacious restaurant with excellent food in a beautiful setting. I love to sit on the patio and admire the sunset. Lunch is also wonderful and can be followed by a walk in the lush garden that contains many Allan Hauser sculptures.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Lon's is a great place for a meal. We have been there several times. The menu consists of a nice variety, including southwestern themed entrees. The patio is enchanting with the flowers and lighting. The service is always impeccable.

Enjoyed phoenix restaurant week specials at Lon'n. Good food and service and a relaxed outside atmosphere with the cowboy guitar man playing old favorites.
