6895 E. Cave Creek Rd., Cave Creek
A stately saguaro welcomes guests at this roadhouse-style outpost, where red-and-white checkered tablecloths, wood floors and ceilings, and a collection of old cowboy boots hanging from the rafters signals you’re not in spit-shined Scottsdale anymore. The place gets rollicking, especially during Steelers games and any big Cave Creek festivity (happy hour isn’t valid during special events or holidays). A $2.50 food lineup includes sliders, wings, a slice of pepperoni pizza, a duo of ribs or two tacos. All appetizers under $10 are also half off, and chips and salsa cost $1.50. Wash everything down with $1.50 small selected drafts, $2.50 selected pints, $2.50 12-ounce domestic bottles, $2.50 wells, $3 premium draft pints, $3 large selected drafts, $3 house wines and $3.50 select call cocktails. Whoa, Nelly, these deals are so good, you can afford a new Stetson! 2-6 p.m. M-F.

1899 Saloon at the Stockyards
5009 E. Washington St., Phoenix
Though built in the 1950s, this old-timey watering hole evokes the turn of the 20th century, complete with fancy carved mahogany, glittering crystal chandeliers and an impressive wrap-around wall mural depicting saloon scenes from the era. You could fill up on chips and salsa and plump sliders (all free) during happy hour, but then you’d miss out on melt-in-your-mouth prime rib machaca soft tacos ($6), chicken tenders with “mop sauce” ($7), the best onion rings in town ($5) or smoky filet bites ($14 ) with garlic toast and Béarnaise. They’re a meal unto themselves, made even better if you ask for horseradish cream. Drink specials include $3 domestic bottled beers, $2 off drafts, $4 well drinks and $5 house wines. 4-7 p.m. M-F.
Old Town Whiskey
4000 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale
Don’t let the name fool you: This is city slicker central, owing to its location in The Saguaro, one of the hippest hotels in the Valley. Still, the barkeeps are no tenderfoots when it comes to knowing their hooch. During the “Shoot Em Up Early” happy hour from 3 to 5 p.m., cocktails and wine cost $6. They include Liberty School chardonnay or cabernet sauvignon, a Moscow Mule, an Old Fashioned, and The Aviation. Red Lager and Sessions Black Lager cost $3. The bar makes happy hour an all-day affair on Thursdays, offering their cut-rate belly washers from open till close. And attention night owls: Every Saturday at midnight, chef Jose Garces’ famous fried chicken wings are served on the house at Distrito in The Saguaro. 3-5 p.m. F-W, all day TH.
