We went here with 3 kids and really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere! The Fajita Salad is by far the best salad I have ever had!!! It was amazing! The views were beautiful! 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

From the moment we were seated at our table it was all about what we wanted to order and nothing else, no small talk, no pleasant hello how are you, nothing. We explained we were not in a rush and would start with appetizers first and then when they were done we would order our main course, the waitress came... More

Very nice atmosphere here, and an extensive menu (though a little short on vegetarian options for most menu items - most restaurants will offer a cheese and bean version of just about every popular Tex-Mex dish). Regardless, my vegetarian spouse found a vegetarian chimichanga in the 'a la carte' section of the menu. Food was excellent. The special, a chicken... More

This place has a great patio with a view of Sedona's beauty. The food was slightly high priced for Mexican but very reasonable for Sedona. The Dishes are big portions so you will not walk away hungry.

Fantastic Mexican restaurant. We particularly liked the fajitas, which were among the best that we have eaten. If it is not too hot, you can sit outside; ask for a view with a sunset! Nachos and margaritas were also solid. Worth a visit if you are in Sedona and want Mexican food.

I grew up in Arizona, and the one thing I miss is good Mexician food so when traveling I am always on the look-out for good Mexician food and this one did not dissapoint. Took me back to my teen years. Reasonable prices and excellant service. A little difficult to locate but worth the effort.

we're all formed by the places we grow up, and tend to compare everything to what was familiar. I grew up in Globe-Miami and Phoenix, and these places are the tastes I compare everything to. Mexican food especially, I can't get 'good' Mexican food where I currently live, and am always looking for what tastes like I remember. Javelina Cantina... More

We enjoyed the happy hour specials and then headed outside to watch the sunset and the red-red-red rocks. We were treated well the food was good and we would go again.

After almost 13years we got back to the Javelina Cantina, and found out the Dinner still was good as it was back years. The Prices range from 10$ to 16$ so everybody can find something. You get chips and salsa on the table. I would recommend the Taco Salat with chicken it was very tasty.

Went here for drinks and appetizers, but the rest of the menu look as good as what we had...jalapeno poppers. I realize that doesn't sound like much, but they were great. We'll be back for dinner one day. Very nice.
