Ask for the hot salsa!

I've been to Oaxaca a few times and it hasn't changed much in the past few years. The food is average but the patio view is wonderful. If you want better salsa than the standard free stuff ask for the habanero salsa. It has a lot more heat and flavor than what is usually served with the chip... read more

We enjoyed the chips and salsa, but really loved the guacamole and the fajitas. The portions were surprisingly large. Will definitely be back.

Great view of the red rock but, besides making a strong ($8) 'rita, this place just lacked anything we thought was worthy of going beyond the chips and salsa. The salsa seemed like it was straight from a jar, chips were blah, and the margarita was classic premix. Nothing in Sedona is inexpensive, but we at least thought it would... More

The view and outdoor seating were very nice, but the food was very mediocre. The guacamole wasn't even homemade! How can a restaurant in the southwest serve grocery store guacamole? The meals all came sloppily plated with a large plop of refried beans that looked like they were straight from a can. You can get better food elsewhere in Sedona!

We visited this place as we were passing through to do some hiking. Initially, the place looked decent. After waiting (and waiting, and waiting), a server eventually took our order. Then we waited (and waited, and waited some more), but ultimately decided to leave because it was evident that either the cooks had left for lunch, or someone had left... More

This is one of our favorite stops in Sedona. It is reasonably priced with a nice atmosphere and view. Our dinner was great and we will come back the next time we are in Sedona.

This was our first Mexican Retaurant meal in Sedona. Everything about the meal was great. The food was tasty, served hot with great service. Couldn't have asked for any more. Would certainly return.

It always makes us proud to hear how well we did. I will be letting the staff know. . I recommend sitting upstairs on the patio and enjoying one of Arizona's famous sunsets, with margaritas of course. See you soon! More

We like to go here whenever in Sedona. We were pleased with our service--they brought birthday treats. However, I had called ahead and asked to be seated with a view--we were having a special celebration. When we got there, they had split our group (which they did fix), but told us we couldn't be seated with a view, even though... More

My wife and I were looking to end our day of hiking with a nice margarita and a bowl of chips. After roaming the strip we decided to give the Oaxaca our business. We were seated almost immediately and then the wheels came off the wagon. We waited almost five minutes before we were brought some water and some chips... More

This restaurant is centrally located near the shops in downtown Sedona which is why my friend and I picked it for lunch. We were lucky enough to sit and enjoy the view on a lovely day. The food was OK - nothing exciting or special. A bit overpriced for what you get in my view.
