This place was Punk Rock AF! My wife gets pregnant every time we eat here. A magician meets you at diner door and gives you a quest upon which you must defat a troll before being seated! I obtained 1,209 gold and 5,000 exp upon completion of my brunch. More...

Fun place but a bit pricey for the venue.  That's the way it is when you're the only game in town.  Great food and great staff though.

Amazing food. Daily specials are always delicious.  The bread pudding was the best I've ever had.

I love coming here. I come from Chandler so it's a hike, but so worth it. You can tell a lot of hard work goes into it. Everything is fresh. The service is great, the drinks are great, the food is great!! What more can you ask for More...

LOVE coming to the diner! We have been so many times and have always had amazing service and amazing food! I love the chef's creativity with the menu items. I'm always so impressed and I especially enjoy the fresh ingredients. When I was pregnant I ordered to go pretty frequently and it was always ready in a timely manner and the orders were always right. Our favorite time to go is for Trivia Night. We get the tots and a tasty alcoholic beverage and a delicious milkshake to go:)))))) More...

Tried keto to go meal prep. We ordered 10 meals for $65 with tax can to $70.40. Was able to select from 5 different options. We chose fish, chicken and meatballs (beef). Portion size is decent for a lunch or dinner. Idea is to eat healthier so didnt expect a huge portion. Pickup was as smooth as I would like but it was after thr July 4th holiday so hiccups happen. I waited about 25 minutes to get my ordered fufilled. Waitress was nice and offered everyone a beverage while we waited. I have never eaten at this restaurant but it looks delicious. It was a litte furthet from my job than I expected but the quality of the food is good. Last night we ate the Salmon with enchilada sauce with a side salad. It was enjoyable. Salmon appeares to be at least 6oz which is bigger than the standard 5 oz portion. Califlower rice served on the side was also flavorful. Will definitely keep an eye on future keto meal prep menus and check it out. However, I will go pick my order up after work and not on my lunch break if I am short on time. Would be ideal if location was closer to my house or work. More...

Great little gem in eastmark neighborhood! I first came because I heard the chef owner was on food networks Chopped! I absolutely love the Vietnamese wings! They are addictive!! Their burgers are the bomb and I love the farm fresh ingredients they use when available. Fair warning, if you order the fried cheese curds, be prepared to order them twice! You will not be disappointed! More...

Farm to Table Kids' Camp ended today with a special meal harvested from Steadfast Farm and cooked & plated at HandleBar Diner, entirely by the kids for their parents. The kids learned how to harvest, wash, & prep a variety of vegetables, pickle radishes, make pesto, slice & grill zucchini, make bread & sugar cookie dough, and so much more. My son loved attending camp each day - touring and learning all about the farm & diner. Such a unique and memorable experience for him to have this summer! Big thank you to Adam Allison & Erich Schultz and their staff for such a great week! ‍‍ More...

I really love Handlebar Diner, and it's even better that I can walk there! They've always had a great menu and a decent local beer selection, and most of their veggies are grown right next door! There's tons of room outside when the weather is right. More...

It was a great place to stop and grab a bite on the way to the lake. Very family friendly and cozy. Outside seating area is very spacious

Woohoo!Really great food & a solid selection of beer to go with it.Super fun vibe outside with tons of space for kids to play.Hard to go wrong here if you are in the area. The ONLY downside?Seating inside is super limited, so in the HOT HOT SUMMERS of AZ, I'd take a hard pass.Season(s): Fall, Winter, Spring. More...

The Stay At Home Dad is probably my favorite thing ever. It's an awesome location and there's space for the kids to play. If you're planning on dining there, it's usually a hot minute until you receive your food. For this reason, we usually call our food to go. 15 minutes, tops. We love it either way. Some nights we don't mind the wait. More...

I've never been disappointed here. The food is tasty, the ambiance is great and it's right next to home. The service here is great despite how busy it can get. Great place to bring friends, family and pups on a warm sunny day as it's mostly outdoor seating. More...

Chelsie was our server. Bubbles & fun. Food was pricey but ok. Might try it again and try their hamburger.

This was our first time to Handlebar and I was blown away. It is at the front of a new development in Mesa and pretty unassuming. Chef Adam came out and greeted us and walked us through the menu. To say it was inspired and creative would be an understatement. We had the handlebar burger, Adam's mac n cheese, the "Boy I love to lose Super Bowls (an homage to the buffalo bills) and the waybird. Everything was great and the portions were huge. Onion rings are a must try as well. Way to chef and team! More...

We're so lucky we have this cute little diner in our neighborhood, and it's not just a novelty the food is GREAT, at a fair price and they have a good selection of beers on tap.

We continue to have an amazing experience each time we come here! Tonight, Nicole from the Handlebar went out of her way to ask my picky eating toddler what food she likes. She was so great at interacting with her and making her feel special. She then found watermelon which is what my toddler wanted and brought it out to her. She is such a great addition to this diner and the continued great service and caring staff is another reason why we'll continue to be loyal guests. Thank you, Nicole! You're an incredible person!

This was absolutely the best find for my best friend and I. We weren't sure about the location at first- but it was really relaxing and a great atmosphere. The service was good, the staff was friendly- the food was amazing. They had dishes that you can't find anywhere else! The chef was actually on Chopped and won his episode. We were a little surprised that there wasn't a restroom wasn't available at the diner itself- but the food was good enough that we still think it's worth it. We ordered the fish and chips, the east west tots with come back sauce, and a dessert and it was all amazing. Definitely a favorite. More...

Great little diner. Almost entirely outdoor seating with misters. Food was really good. Had the club sandwich (it was massive). Our server was Bryce who was awesome. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed More...

I love this place. It's 3 Mins walk from my house. Has great vibes and the staff are all super nice. The Handlebar mule is bomb. Currently typing under the influence of said drink. Burgers are bomb. What more could you want! Well just let me know in the comments! Haha More...

Unique place with friendly staff. It's awesome that we have personally seen the owner Chef Adam in action! The food never disappoints and the shakes are amazing. Not too many places have the same story of the building actually being transplanted from another state and that just adds to the attraction. More...

Great service, great food and would highly recommend!! We go there almost every Saturday or Sunday morning for breakfast or lunch depending on the weather.

My wife and I were very excited when we found out our community had a local restaurant/bar within walking distance to our house, and it does not disappoint.   We have gone once, for trivia.   The service, food and atmosphere were amazing.We definitely will be frequenting The Handle Bar Diner for not only trivia and beer, but also their amazing food.   You will not be disappointed when you try it out.

The Handlebar is awesome.  John A's review on 6/1 was a hatchet job, since for once in his short life an adult told him what to do. The food is great, the beer is cold and the staff is friendly. Please keep up the great work! More...

We love handlebar. We go there all the time! Their food is great, we love the wings, nachos and their shakes!!! They also have great specials all the time that I highly suggest you try. It is so nice to hang out, have a cold drink under the misters and relax. I recently went to their Thursday night trivia and had a blast. ( I'm terrible at trivia but my friends were all good haha) More...

Super cute spot! Didn't plan on eating lunch but the patio set up with the misters and picnic style benches lured me in! Ordered the Arizona salad and it was delish! Steak was cooked perfectly and seasoned well! I'm quite picky when it comes to steak and this didn't taste like cheap fatty meat ( a major plus).  After we ate we sat on the grass and finished the beers we ordered on the Adirondack chairs ( perfect afternoon pick me up)! If youre near by stop on!! Only down fall is it is a bit pricey, $36 for two beers and the salad with tip.  They had a good lunch/brunch menu too we just missed that by an hour. More...

We've been here frequently and love it! Love the location, the staff and the food. The nachos are delicious and I have a hard time choosing something different because they're so good. My husband loves the burgers. We enjoy coming here and are so glad we have a restaurant/bar within walking distance More...

I just tried this place out for the first time. This particular restaurant is in eastmark housing development which is cool if you live in the neighborhood. I happened to go when the hot wings where on special for fifty cents a piece. So I ordered some Carolina and parmeasan garlic. I also tried the pretzel bread. The wings are good and the pretzel bread was delicious. I'd definitely come back and try their breakfast or maybe stop in on a Saturday night for a drink. More...

This place gets busy here from time to time so when it isn't busy it the best service.  Wait staff are friendly and so are their best when it is packed.  The Pork Nachos are very good and best time to hit the place up for drinks is when it's happy hour otherwise it's a bit expensive.  Great outdoor place to to eat out.   Very few seats inside at a counter.  Mostly outdoor seating.

Are you kidding me?  This place is awesome.  My sister and her family live in Eastmark and they recommended we stop here for lunch.  Farm to table amazingness.  Great food, chopped cobb with blackened salmon was To. Die. For.  Kids loved their burgers, said they're better than dad's, but not to tell him.  Good beer, had a Dragoon IPA.  Baseball game was on the outdoor seating, life was good!  Will make the drive back, for sure.

Hard to find, but worth finding! Small place, but has nice outdoor seating. Great onion rings! And the burgers are big and messy (in a good way)   There's no sign from the street, but there's no place like it!

Dropped into this tiny gem based on Yelp reviews and were pleasantly surprised with the quaint & cozy atmosphere. Wings were on special and we tried 6 different flavors and ended up taking a couple dozen home to put in the freezer for emergencies. No tap beer the night we were there but they do have 3 handles that should come back on line soon. Tried several local craft beers in bottles and cans and were not disappointed. Looking forward to eating outside in the future when weather permits. Friendly staff and owner. More...

We stopped in for brunch yesterday and everything we got was AMAZING!! And the service was great! You need to try the avocado toast if you haven't, you won't regret it!

They had there growing pains when they first opened, to be expected. Everytime I go back I continue to be impressed. Not only is it great for the Eastmark Community to have, but its worth going to even if you don't live in Eastmark. Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch/Dinner and  even Take-Out. Its a definite stopping place when people come to visit. Love the atmosphere and even better when my bestie visits from Tacoma and brings my godson, her expectations were met and then some. Wishes she had a place like this in her neighborhood. Adults can enjoy a tasty beverage, and still let the kids explore. More...

This little diamond in the neighborhood is the best. The Nachos... soooo good! We've also had the burgers, burrito, and did I mention he nachos?  Great place to enjoy a beer and some food with friends. The kids can play in the grassy area while you enjoy watching sports out in the wonderful AZ sunshine. The service is always friendly and prompt too. We have eaten there and picked food to take home. It's great to have a yummy place to grab food in our neighborhood. More...

If your priority is fast food, Handlebar Diner will probably come up short.  However, if you're seeking an awesomely delicious chili relleno special, terrifically tasty hamburger, outstanding onion rings, phenomenal Philly cheesesteak (with actual CheezWhiz), or other similar fare, this a must on your dining bucket list.  The patio overlooks Eastmark's Great Park so this is a relaxing, fun gathering place.  The servers are outstanding and attentive to their patrons.  The small kitchen (it's a vintage diner, after all) accounts for the wait from order to having a plate set in front of you.   But you can enjoy a drink or two and soak up the ambience.  Then fill up on some of the best food in the area.  We been to Handlebar twice and now that we're East Valleyites, will likely be regulars.

It has been an epicurian adventure discovering new menu items that are different, delicious, affordable and with personal service to match!  This little bistro is nestled in the new and growing Eastmark Neighborhood in East Mesa right next to the pool, parks and community center! If you are looking for casual, private, unique and a mostly outdoor experience, check it out!  Try the Short Rib 4 Cheese Grilled Cheese with Tomato Jam w/Tots!  It is amazing! More...

Excellent service today with fresh food. I had a chicken sandwich and hubby had a burger for lunch. Simple order, but both sandwiches were juicy and the toppings tasted fresh. You can taste the "farm to plate" philosophy at this diner. We also split the pretzels as an appetizers; they were soft and flavorful. The service was outstanding! Haven't experienced such great service at a restaurant in a long time. We will return. More...

Super cute local diner. We went here for the first time just to check it out since we live in the area. The environment is pretty chill and the food was great. Our server Eddy was pretty awesome too. He joked with us and made us feel at home. Definitely would come back here. Nice that it's only 2 miles from our house. More...

We live in Eastmark and are so lucky to have this fantastic little diner right in the hood The menu has lots of variety and choices. I got the Grilled Chicken with Onion Rings and my significant other got the OC burger and she loved it. The outside seating is perfect to enjoy this time of year. More...

For those of you that enjoy small Diner's this one located by my home is just perfect. Great menu and pricing to boot. Service and the visit from a manager that cares about their work product was not expected. Way to go Handlebar Diner.

We tried HandleBar Diner for the first time tonight.  DELICIOUS food!  We tried the crispy chicken sandwiches - hand battered chicken breast...very good!  home made onion rings...melt in your mouth!  The Handlebar burger  was very good - lots of meat....house made sauce added some zing.  Loaded tater tots - western style - TRULY loaded with meat, avocado, cheeses, beans, corn!  Small restaurant but we did take out.  We will definitely be back! More...

I love that this place is conveniently placed in the middle of many neighborhoods. It brings out people, even those not in Eastmark. The prices and happy hour are fair. Only downfall is that it can get hot because it's an outdoor diner (besides the small seating inside), maybe some misters and fans outside in the future? This place is still new, so I expect some improvements in the future. Also, due to its size, I wish they wouldn't host events that they wouldn't be able to accommodate. I understand they can service us, but when it's busy, it's slow for customers, especially waiting in the heat. I would recommend this place for homebodies who don't want to leave/ travel far for good eats. More...

Another great experience at Handlebar Diner. Great service from the staff. I had the nacho's again since they were so good the last time,and they were just as awesome on this occasion. My wife had the chicken tender basket. She said she really like the nice crisp texture of the outside which was very light. She said the tenders were very meaty, and the comeback sauce paired well with them. Thank you for the great food and fast friendly service. More...

Cute little diner in Eastmark. Inside is extremely tight but the outdoor space is nice and spacious. Their are a lot of families here with the splash pad being next door but we didn't mind. We came on a Friday night and it was pretty dead. This seems more like a place you would come to for lunch. We ordered a couple beers which came in a can (kinda cool) haven't seen that in a while. For dinner we ordered the west loaded tator tots (yum) and split the windjammer. Food was delicious and service was nice. We will definitely be back once it cools down a little :). More...

Best ceviche this side of Baja California!  My husband had the chicken sandwich with grilled onions.... to die for!  Eddie and "Chef" were so friendly.  The diner is right out of the 50's but the menu has some great twists along with fabulous traditional fare. Super friendly staff and they have mixed drinks as well.  We will be back! More...

An incredibly charming little diner in the Eastmark community. Their loaded tots are amazing, but be warned if you order them, you won't be hungry for much else because it's a huuuuuuuuge serving. Zero regrets ordering them though (and to be fair, we were warned that it was a lot of food. We just opted to be gluttons that day). Hubby had Lobster Roll Sliders which he seemed to love. I didn't try them since I'm not a huge fan of lobster. I also got the mac & cheese which I think was actually missing the chimichurri sauce, but it was delicious even without it. BUT THE TOTS YOU GUYS. I left bloated, but extremely happy. More...

This place is awesomely unique. We were told about it by some Canadians passing through town only to find out it was less than 5 miles from my own house. How did I miss this great spot. They rotate craft beer in and out and always have something new to try. I recommended a beer to the owner and he even put it on tap the next month. The food is fresh and made to order. Really great homaede Pizza sauce.  I have been back with friends and family and will continue to go as long as I can. More...

The food is good, concept good, but if you sit inside (and who wouldn't in this heat!) you hear the banging of the doors every time either a customer or server goes outside!! Omg!!! I wanted to scream!!!  Because of the coming and goings, there will be flies in the establishment.  So I appreciate the local eatery, but the flies and banging of the doors kill it for a repeat visit from me! Just want to mention, customer service very good. More...

18 May 2017

Been here twice since it opened, once for breakfast and once for lunch, and the food is amazing! The only negative experience was the amount of flies that are around you while you eat and the weather. I know both of these can't be controlled by the restaurant but I wish they would have made more of an inside dining area as opposed to outside seating... Especially in the AZ summer!!!! More...

Wonderful service! We were playing at the splash pad when our kids got hungry. I sent my husband over to pick up a kids turkey sandwich not knowing they were doing a special Mother's Day brunch until 2 pm. They were so awesome and made a turkey sandwich special for us! Really appreciate that kind of service and will be back again! More...

As residents of the community that this restaurant is located in, I can tell you we are so lucky and excited to have these guys here! My husband and I went with some good friends the first weekend it was open, and surprisingly had very few hiccups! Our food was outstanding. They brought our 3 year old daughters food out super fast, and ours was pretty fast behind hers. I had the Crispy Chicken sandwich that was awesome, and husband had the French Dip I believe and said he loved it. Our ONLY complaint was that the canned beers we got were extremely....not cold. But that's something that can be fixed. Also, it would be awesome to get some music, fans, misters....they'll need all that stuff to keep the customers coming in the summer time. :) But you better believe this will be a frequent staple to my husband, daughters and our neighborhood "framily" to come eat, drink and hang out! We wish them the best of luck and can't wait to work our way through the menu! More...

I've found my new favorite burger joint!! The 1St time I went to this place it was really busy, they had only been open for 2 days. My experience wasn't the greatest however I knew this place had grater potential. So I didn't give up and decided to give them another try!! I was lucky to speak with Adam one of the owner about my experience. He was glad that I spoke to him about the problem and offered to fix the issue!! Also I spoke with couple of the employees while I was there, they love working for Adam (owners) because of the passion they demonstrate for food drives them all !!!I've always had a soft spot for burgers so I know when I find an excellent burger joint that's worth going back to!
