One of Cave Creeks’ quintessential businesses is undeniably The Indian Village. Sitting in the center of town on what was originally a 88-acre parcel that includes the Hideaway bar, it is believed to have been housing built in the 1930 for the builders of Bartlett Dam.
Purchased by the Krasson Family in 1984, and dubbed Indian Village, they have been selling Cave Creek memorabilia and souvenirs, and serving up some of the tastiest Indian Fry Bread and Mexican food in the Valley for nearly four decades.
Typically Cave Creek funky and rustic, cooling is solely by swamp cooler in summer, making it somehow more authentic. They have both indoor and screened porch seating. The locals swear by their crispy tacos and spinach enchiladas, and the Navajo Taco is a big seller as well, (think fluffy tostada).
A great place to pick up a few post cards, a tee or sweat shirt, as well as lots of other Cave Creek, Southwest and Native American gifts and knick-knacks. They are strictly a daytime operation however, and they close daily at 5 pm. If you’ve not tasted the grub at Indian Village, give it a try!
