It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.

They have just about everything on the menu, so a great place for a group. Had the crane asada and took home enough for another meal.

After a long morning of hiking at Bell Rock we stopped in for a much needed lunch. The menu was varied, and the sandwiches were really good. I loved that as a side order you could have fruit or potato salad instead of the typical french fries. It was also very reasonable!

We were in Sedona for a destination wedding and had a large group (one day a party of 30+)for breakfast. Everyone loved their breakfast and we were all served very quickly. Our waitress, Jessica, was fabulous and made us feel at home every morning.

I just bought my brother a gift certificate from the owner of this restaurant for Christmas. When we visited Sedona in May of 2014 this was the first restaurant we stopped at, his very favorite.

Stopped into this place for a quick lunch with two of my friends while Mountain Biking. As two of us are vegetarian we needed somewhere quick but also with a decent menu. The ambiance is not exactly stellar (kind of dark and in a shopping mall), but once we settled in the service and the food was first rate. I... More

Stumbled across this place when visiting the yarn store next door, wide variety of menu choices, super nice staff, attentive to your needs, and the prices are very reasonable. We ate Breakfast there twice, lunch and dinner once each. Great daily specials, plenty of food. I would go there again if I am back in Sedona.

Family owned Mexican restaurant. They have burgers, seafood and breakfast food so anyone can find something to eat. Portions are large and service is very fast. Staff is very friendly and eager to please you.
