We had a late lunch at Javelina's. It is located about a mile away from the downtown hustle and bustle. The food was very good, authentic Mexican. We enjoyed the complimentary chips and salsa, always a good way to start a meal. Portions were huge. My house margarita was very good. The views were Amazing, as we were seated in... More

Nice place to have a Mexican food based meal. They are well known for their many varieties of Margaritas as well! Nestled in Hillside on Rt. 179 almost in the main throws of Sedona, where multiple shops, galleries and places to eat or drink are located is where you will find the Javelina Cantina.

Nice views from the terrace. Very friendly staff. My husband declared his vegetable burrito to be the best he's ever had. Queso dip just ok.....not your typical recipe. Margueritas really good! Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Awesome steak fajitas! We live in Tucson with lots of authentic Mexican restaurants, but Javelina Cantina's fajitas are by far our favorite! Wonderful atmosphere and great service! My only complaint is that their sangria is bitter. However, we travel up to Sedona several times a year and ALWAYS eat here. Highly recommend! The place can be busy, so make reservations.... More

I love Mexican food and they have the best here! If you go during rush hour during lunch or dinner prepare to wait for a table but it is worth it for the view of the red rocks outside their windows. Happy hour is great too.

Went for dinner. Sat on patio, which was small, but with a pretty good view of the amazing red rock landscape. Did i mention the food? It was great! Fresh chips & salsa & a fabulous margarita. Then chicken fajitas with superb guacamole!

We arrived early and were seated right away. We went there because it reportedly had a good view. I wouldn't call it a view restaurant. There are rocks in view outside on the patio, but also power lines running across the view. Our server was sub par(older blonde lady). Other servers seemed to give better attention. Chips and salsa and... More

Fun atmosphere, great for families, great food. As a local, we actually still go here on a regular basis- I think that says something!
