The menu is more limited than when we ate there last time. So, I ordered a burger to be safe. It was slightly undercooked, and the bottom bun was absolutely soggy so I couldn't pick it up to eat it. I had to slice it and eat with a fork. Taste was OK.

Food and setting were excellent. Our server must have been brand new as she was wearing someone else's name tag. I think she quit in the middle of our meal, as we never saw her again. We waited 20 minutes for someone to bring the bill and finally had to go inside to request one.

We were thrilled to be able to get a reservation for brunch on Thanksgiving weekend at Lon's. What a special experience for our trip to Phoenix/Mesa after a week in Sedona.
From the minute you pull up to valet parking at the Hermosa Inn to the time you are seated at Lon's, the entire staff is welcoming and cordial.
While waiting for our table to be readied, we took seats in the vestibule next to the bar - next to a fireplace with large leather chairs. And a wonderful person brought us water - without being asked! - for our short wait. It is Arizona, after all.
We were greeted warmly by Briana once we were seated and everything was splendid. Her service and suggestions were appreciated. The person who brought our food and our bus person Miguel were efficient, friendly and as accommodating as Briana. The staff are all gems!
We thoroughly enjoyed our choices of Huevos Rancheros and the Short Rib Hash with poached eggs. And let's just say that starting with the cinnamon monkey bread is pure indulgence but don't we all deserve it?
What a wonderful experience before we return to Philadelphia! Thank you.

Lex was our server and was a total sweetheart. The manager kindly complimented us on our western attire and went out of his way for us as did everyone else we felt extremely welcome! We will be back regularly. Ps. We felt a lot of warmth towards our small children and it really is the most beautiful setting and gorgeous flower garden ! And yummy food!

Presentation of the tortilla soup was lovely, but the soup was so unexpectedly spicy that after one taste I couldn’t eat it. I passed it to my husband who enjoys quite spicy food said it was almost too much for him as well. I also would have preferred it to be thinned out with a chicken broth so the thick sauce would be thinner like a soup.

Mosquitoes were another problem. I noticed that my husband had a mosquito on his chin and I have 4 bites.

Great night at Lon’s to celebrate our anniversary!
We had to eat indoors this year because of threatening rain. However the service by Kevin, our waiter, and the delicious menu entrees did not disappoint. The noise level picked up while dining inside, we were surprised by the crowd.
This is still our number one special occasion place to go! Thanks for the very thoughtful dessert and card.

Every other review has been five stars. This time, I ordered my usual Superfood Salad and it was completely different from previous times and from the menu. There was no sweet potato, no pomegranate seed dressing, few walnuts and no kale. The kale was replaced with another green. The unknown dressing was way more than required. The avocado was nice. I was not told about the substitutions when my order was placed. As noted, this is highly unusual from my previous visits.

My girlfriend and I ate here on 11/18 to celebrate a belated birthday dinner. Both of us love the food and ambiance here. My girlfriend ordered Scottish Salmon substituted with garlic mashed potatoes instead of wheat berry risotto. It also comes with fava beans there was part of the salmon and mashed potatoes with the fava beans & mushrooms but they didn't include the mashed potatoes in the to-go box. She asked for another side of peppercorn sauce but they put in an au jus sauce to-go instead. We didn't know this until we got home.
I ordered the filet mignon (medium rare) with cracked pepper demi, mushroom medley, asparagus, & garlic mashed potatoes. My plate had all the different foods on it. As I was first cutting the steak it appeared to be overcooked based on how the knife went through. I ate a morsel & it felt like it was tougher than a medium rare steak. I shined a light on the steak and it was cooked to medium. I told the server & he quickly took it back. The 2nd steak came out 35-40 minutes later and after my girlfriend had finished eating her entreé. As I was first cutting the steak it appeared to be undercooked based on how the knife went through. I shined a light on the steak & it was cooked to barely rare. I told the server and told him that I would accept it. I was informed that the kitchen started over several steaks due to over cooking.
Our meal ended on a great note with a celebration cake and Lon's candy bar. All food tasted great except girlfriend's mushrooms.
