What a nice treat - small cafe with great service and excellent food. We ate only Mexican but there is American food also. Our server was very friendly and helped with selections. The food was ample, well-prepared and very tasty. My chimichanga was wonderful - full of good chicken and very light. If you like spicy, they will serve you... More

We had been here many years ago (5 / 6) and enjoyed the atmosphere and food so much; we decided to eat lunch here on our way to Monument Valley this past June. The family running the place are extremely friendly and service is exceptional; even when busy. I ordered the posole and fry bread, and my wife had the... More

The food was excellent and matched the welcome. Its true you would drive past as is doesn't look much from the outside but you will be missing a real treat not only in food but in customer service. I would go back to Kayenta just to eat here

Great dinner in unexpected environment!!! You could easily drive by and not notice the place. A cantinelike setup with great local family dinner menu. Not fancy but nice flavour of Indian / Mexican food. Fresh taste tast chilly good for kids and parents. Go for the real local place and food

We were recommended to go here after reviewing trip advisor and asking locals. It was cheap but poor quality food. Loads of it which is off putting. My dish came out and it was overdone from the microwave - a Mexican dish that was now brown as the beans had melted over rest of food. The free crisps were also... More
