Renovations, events planned for historic business

February 16, 2017, Cave Creek, Arizona – Brooke Butler, a native Cave Creek resident who has worked for iconic Big Earl’s Greasy Eats for more than four years, has purchased the business.

Butler, who has many plans for the retro restaurant/bar, says buying the business was her destiny.

“I wanted to buy Big Earl’s Greasy Eats because I have worked here for years and have a deep connection with the restaurant and the many relationships I have fostered here,” says Butler. “It became apparent to me that this is where I should be.”

Brooke ButlerButler says her team of 17 employees already has removed the stage and dancing poles, which were key to the development of the restaurant/bar’s annual White Trash Bash, which takes place every July.

“We are excited to bring a lot of fun and interesting changes to Big Earl’s in the coming weeks and months,” adds Butler. “Our team has added tater tots and fried pickles to the menu and are offering even more exciting adult milkshake varieties, and we plan to will add more new food items for later this year. One of our goals is to bring back the 1950s feel that made this place a piece of Arizona history, however, we have committed to continue serving the same award-winning food that people have come to love.”

Butler is planning to add Monday night family nights, video truck games monthly and a party to celebrate the sale of the establishment.

The History of Big Earl’s Greasy Eats

big earls cave creekKnown as the old Cave Creek gas station, Big Earl’s Greasy Eats was designed as a station for Standard Oil in 1935 and patented in 1936. In 1936, Phoenix had 127 service stations, 14 of which were Standard Oil stations. Today, the Cave Creek station, Big Earl’s Greasy Eats, is the only known surviving example of a 1930s art deco Standard gas station in the greater Phoenix metropolis. Now a world famous restaurant, the former station originally was located on 19th Avenue in Phoenix and was moved to Cave Creek in 1952. It functioned as a Standard station until the late 1980s. Open 364 days a year, Big Earl’s Greasy Eats serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
