New Country BBQ Concept Coming to Desert Ridge Marketplace

PHOENIX – The big sky country is making its way to the city – Foley Ranch Boots & BBQ is thrilled to officially announce its grand opening at Desert Ridge Marketplace on Friday, Jan. 26. From the duo behind Scramble, a breakfast joint and the Half Moon Sports Grills, this brand-new concept provides an experience full of country music, mouthwatering BBQ from celebrity chef Brian Duffy, nightlife, dancing and loads of Montana hospitality.

Located between BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse and ComicX, the 8,000-square-foot space has undergone a full renovation to give customers an authentic western experience. The revamp on the indoor-outdoor spaces include a custom designed bar with a bottled beer cap bar top, a performance stage for live music, VIP booths, a smokehouse inside restaurant, and more.

“We are so delighted to officially bring this new concept to the North Phoenix area,” said Don Talbot, owner of Foley Ranch. “This concept has been in the works for upwards of 13 years and Clay [Moizo] and I are thrilled to have finally brought this to life. We are eager to bring Foley Ranch to the community and can’t wait to meet everyone in the neighborhood.”

Brian Duffy, celebrity chef known for his recurring appearances on the TV series Bar Rescue and features on Beat Bobby Flay, The Today Show and more, also joins the Foley team curating an appetizing, one-of-a-kind menu of mouthwatering BBQ favorites for the whole family to enjoy.

“This is an exciting new venture for Desert Ridge Marketplace,” said 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.”
