My family of three tried different entree's/combos and all of us were very pleased with the quality, taste and freshness of our meals. The portions were so large that I had leftovers for dinner and it was just as good re-heated! Service was friendly also. We'll be back.

Wonderful Mexican food and service is excellent. I had vegetarian fajita and it was scrumptious. The best one I have ever eaten. Too much to eat, but I did my best.

As a senior contributor I gotta be true to my personal 2015 review promise of making "value" a major component of my review so if I'm paying nearly $20 all in for a non-alcohol beverage lunch, it should be really good to excellent for me to give 5stars, recommend to others, and come back! Clean, good service, just ok portion... More

Second time dining at Javelina, and no disappointments. Chose to dine at the bar and Rick (bartender) does a great job. Friendly, attentive, and quick. Started off with a green corn tamale - really tasty, second course was the beef fajitas-excellent-we shared both and there was plenty to go around. Finished off our meal with a margarita of the day-awesome!... More

Having read the fabulous reviews on TripAdvisor, we couldn't wait to try it out. Happy hour was from 4-6 and I went to the bar at 6:01 to buy a margarita and fortunately was not turned away. The bartender was very pleasant and quick to make my drink. The hostess was not very pleasant and while we waited for a... More

If you like Mexican, need a kid-friendly eatery, or just want a great place to enjoy the wonderful Sedona sunsets, this is the spot for you. It is high on our list whenever we visit Sedona, and we are smart enough now to time our visit so that we can enjoy the great views at sunset (be sure to to... More

Great food, one of our favorite places. We seem to always get the same server and he is great. The host/ owner needs to learn what customer service and a smile are...massively unhappy woman who is not welcoming or friendly. Food is well worth the momentary snoody 'tude though

The Javelina had some of the best Mexican food ever! That and the great beer selection made this a great spot for dinner on our first night in Sonoma!

Wonderful Mexican food with an authentic flavor. If you want to improve the salsa however, you have to request the Non-Gringo salsa. I have lived in Arizona since 1988 so my tasts buds have evolved to a spicier, hotter flavor. For the inexperienced though, it was perfect. My daughter grew up in AZ and moved to Alaska so she was...
