Food was tasty. Staff was friendly. Very busy place. A bit over priced Mexican food. Sedona everything is over priced.

Just average food with good service and ambiance. Definitely not a destination dining experience that I would have expected by the appearance and prices.

Delicious fajitas and a great and interesting salad. We were seated and then ignored. If it weren't for the bus person,we might still be sitting there with all the other waiters and waitresses wandering by. Our waiter was trying to be friendly (he called us his amigos) but we had to order our drinks along with our food. We enjoyed... More

Really nice interior layout. Pretty quick service and the food was great. The staff were pleasant. It was a little more expensive a place than we usually go to. Nice view of Sedona. Not much parking for the number of shops in the plaza though. I imagine that this is a problem in peak times. It is worth a visit... More

I'm not a Marguerita drinker, but I've been converted!! So has my wife. Great drinks "presented" here, and lightning service. We made this our "local" cocktail choice by day 2 of our 7 day stay. You will find the locals here too...relaxing after their long day with the tourists.... Stop by and enjoy the house special Javelina Marguerita.

The food was very good. Service was fast and friendly. We were very surprised when the bill (for three of us) came close to the bill for dinner at a restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip the night before. Two of us ordered sides of guacamole. They ended up being $8.00 each and about 1/3 the size of what we... More

A lower price point than Elote's, The food is very good value for the money. Great bar area where you can watch sports. The chips, salsa and guacamole are tasty. Menu is standard Mexican done well.

People were lined up early. Service was very good and so was the food. Would like to go there when it was warm enough to use patio as they have a great view. Prices were reasonable

Recommended by our Hotel. The bartender acted like we were invisible. Asked if I wanted salt on my Margarita, I said NO, came with a salted glass. (Margarita was good) Hardly looked at us. Were thinking about leaving, but too hungry. Our waiter was wonderful and the food really was very good. Hey folks, remember your Hostess and Bartender are... More
