Disappointed by our attempt to eat Sunday breakfast at Red Rooster, we walked around the corner to R.I.O.T. where we saw a brunch sign. This is a converted gas station where they've done a very nice job of remodeling the interior. The best part is a huge outdoor patio area, complete with a lawn (fake, but nice). Absolutely perfect for... More

Yep, we like this local's favorite in Old Town Cottonwood. Situated in an old auto repair shop, the Rendezvous In Old Town (RIOT) has a ton of character and REALLY good food too. I'm thinking about running down there for their famous Sunday Brunch right now! Yep, if you're in Old Town Cottonwood, don't hesitate to stop in and have... More

This has the tastiest salad in Cottonwood. Chicken sandwich was great too. Side salad is large. Wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. Nice outdoor patio.

My husband and I stopped into RIOT on the recommendation of a local bartender at That Brewery. We were hungry and she said, "It's bar food, but it's great". Needless to say I was completely blown away by the food, it was AMAZING. My husband got the Asparagus Quesadilla and I got the LAish Burger (based on the bartenders recommendation).... More

Camping in Cottonwood and wanted to try out a local place. Great atmosphere in an old gas station. Had the SW Mac & Cheese. It was great. All other patrons were extremely friendly as was the bartender. Would visit again if I was going to be in the area longer.

We stopped here after hiking one afternoon. We were hungry and thirsty. RIOT was great for that. Not fancy, but good food and local beers.
