An awesome Mexican restaurant nestled atop the slope of this shopping center. Great views of surrounding red rock and a great menu that is priced right. Very colorful decor and wonderful service.

We were guided there by the receptionist at Arabella hotel. Great fun place with plenty of atmosphere. We only had drinks and "Happy Hour" specials but the place was nice and clean and the wait staff was very courteous. Love to try for dinner on next trip. The dinners were excited about the food and service as I asked how... More

This restaurant was my first taste of Sedona, AZ, and let me tell you...it was DELICIOUS! 3 words: Prickly Pear Daiquiri. Don't leave without trying one from Javelina! The atmosphere and decor is very trendy, and the views out on the patio of the painted rocks are incredible. Definitely a 5-star experience without the 5-star budget. Everyone that greeted or...

This place is consistantly good, for gringo Mexican food. My husband always gets the fajita & I go for fish tacos or a giant chimi-changa (that I make 3 meals out of). Yum. House margarita's are good imo (rocks/salt). You can order specialties, combos or ala-carte, but be hungry or be prepared to have a lot left over. During the... More

I ate here the first night I was in Sedona. Everything I ordered was delicious. I thought the waitstaff was friendly and great with suggestions. I sat outside and had a beautiful view of the sun setting. It was a perfect start to my trip!

Had the Baja tacos, the place is a bit dated, probably time to change the 1990's colors out, but the old people seem to love it. Our bar tender was nice but totally disappeared after taking our drink order.. Over all it was a good experience and nice place.

My friend had eaten there a few years ago and suggested we should eat there. We went for lunch. I had I think pork carnitas in a green sauce. It was luscious. The pork was tender and very flavorful. Lots of it. I usually don't eat the rice, I did and loved it. The refried beans were cooked to perfection... More
