Cow Palace Restaurant
28802 South Nogales Highway
Amado, AZ 85645   map link


The Cow Palace was established upon the site of an old general store in the days of Otho Kinsley. Otho established the Kinsley Ranch in 1920 and became famous for furnishing bucking horses and Brahma bulls to the now famous Fiesta de Los Vaqueros Rodeo.

Since then, the Cow Palace Restaurant and Bar remains one of this area's most well known attractions. Old timers report that on occasion the Cow Palace became a theatre. The dining room would be cleared and a movie projector and screen would be setup for the patrons to enjoy a film.

In later years, many movies were filmed in the area, such as "The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing," Pray For The Wildcat," "Tin Cup," "The Postman," and "Boys On The Side." As a result, the Cow Palace was frequented by John Wayne and many other stars whose famous faces now grace the bar.
