The spirit of the Big Sky country has galloped into the city. Foley Ranch Boots & BBQ celebrated its grand opening in Desert Ridge Marketplace on January 26. This new dining and entertainment venue, from the creative minds behind Scramble and Half Moon Sports Grills, promises an immersive western experience complete with toe-tapping country music, signature BBQ dishes, and the kind of hospitality Montana’s known for.

Located between BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse and ComicX, Foley Ranch occupies an 8,000-square-foot space that has been completely overhauled. The renovations boast a western-themed interior and exterior, including a custom-designed bar topped with beer caps, a live music stage, VIP booths, and an in-house smokehouse, crafting a truly authentic ranch atmosphere.

Owner Don Talbot, alongside his business partner Clay Moizo, is excited about the venture, especially after 13 years of planning. “We are so delighted to officially bring this new concept to the North Phoenix area,” says Talbot, who can’t wait to meet patrons of his new restaurant.

Adding to the excitement is the collaboration with celebrity Chef Brian Duffy, renowned for his appearances on “Bar Rescue” and various culinary shows. Duffy is at the helm of the Foley Ranch kitchen, serving up a tantalizing menu that is sure to draw BBQ aficionados from all over the Valley.

“This is an exciting new venture for Desert Ridge Marketplace,” says Jenny Cushing, vice president of leasing for Desert Ridge Marketplace. “Foley Ranch really is a unique concept and I believe it will be a great spot for the surrounding community to get together, enjoy delicious food and kick their boots up.”

Foley Ranch is open Tuesday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. The restaurant is closed on Mondays. Foley Ranch is family friendly and switches to a 21-plus experience beginning at 10 p.m. daily. Foley Ranch is located at 21001 N. Tatum Blvd., in Phoenix.
