THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Binkley's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: BINKLEY’S RESTAURANT HAS RELOCATED TO 2320 E. OSBORN RD., PHOENIX. Infamous for its cowboy bars, cowboy steaks and social muddle of real and rhinestone cowboys, rowdy Cave Creek achieved instant culinary stature when Binkley's came to town. It's a breadbox, devoid of flashy design but filled with maturity and warmth. Local art from the Bonner David Gallery adds color to the always-crowded dining room. But the real bling comes from chef-owner Kevin Binkley's cooking. Multi courses in miniature unfurl, tickling and teasing the taste buds like tempting window displays. The parade of dishes flows, limitless in their expression, whimsy and style. With the help of his wife and partner Amy (a chef in her own right), The French Laundry-trained chef executes a seasonal, daily-changing menu steeped in local ingredients. À la carte is fine, but for an overview of what this talented fellow can do, try the four-, five- or six-course tasting menus. Binkley will often shock you with offbeat ingredients (cardoons) or surprise you with unexpected bites (chicharones).
