Ate here 3 years ago because they had gluten free food. The quality is still great and the prices are fair

We really enjoyed our first experience at the Cantina. Chips were fresh and warm. We had the Mahi taco special. I do not eat rice and beans so our waitress Patty asked if I would like a salad. The cilantro lime dressing was excellent! A real star addition to the tacos !

We had a nice dinner here - steak fajitas were probably the best we've had. Service was ok - they were pretty busy the whole time. All in all, we enjoyed our meal there.

Every trip my wife and I make to the Sedona area, we do our best to hit the Javelins Cantina on Tuesday for its special taco deal. Tacos are a dollar each and are offered several ways. My favorite is the ground beef soft tortilla and she likes the bean taco, also in the soft tortilla. Other choices include shredded... More

They make real good margaritas , serve great local beer (Oak creek brewery).The bartenders are friendly and helpful. The food is very good and they serve large portions. Slightly expensive for Mexican food, but worth it.

Great food, good service and priced right. The atmosphere was appealing. We stopped by in the afternoon to check the menu and see if we thought that we would like to have dinner there. Which what we did. The only downside was that when we stopped by in the afternoon we had drinks outside and the flies drove in. So... More

After a long, hot drive from Phoenix, it was a nice surprise to stop here and be greeted with warm flour tortilla chips to whet our appetite. We ordered side dishes which were ample and filled us up. The cheese enchilada was delicious as was the chicken machada taco. I would definitely go there again.

This was among the best Mexican food we've eaten. The green corn tamales were exceptional. The red enchilada sauce was very good. Salsa is among the best we've eaten. Service was professional -- appropriately attentive without being intrusive. But go early. The crowds can make for a long wait.

I ordered the two enchilada dinner with one chicken and one steak. I mistook the steak for chicken because it had so little flavor. I suspect that the steak was boiled rather than grilled. There was no attempt to add flavor to the food and I ate very little of it. The waiter recommended the Ultimate Margarita. I had to... More

The kids menu was very good and included a beverage, main dish, side dish, and a sundae at the end! Highly recommend!!! We will be back... More
