We stopped here for an early lunch and requested patio seating which was very charming. The staff was friendly and efficient. The margs. were great with a nice little punch. The salsa was fresh and they gave us a mini caraf of salsa for refills, which was nice. The food was good, but be careful not to order too many... More

The restaurant was recommended by friends who stay here every winter. We had a great lunch, beef chimichanga. The waiter spiced it to our liking- hot but not too much. It was excellent and so were the marguerite's. The waiter was very accommodating.

I have to give this 4 stars for the fact that the food was very delicious. It however is expensive for Mexican food. I got the shrimp enchilada and beef taco combo and it was over $17. I can't complain because it was good, but be prepared for the cost. The ultimate margarita was also excellent and we had the... More

We came here on the recommendation of the local hiking store across the street. I had the blue tortilla encrusted chile relleno which was very unique and great! My husband had the chicken chimmichaunga which he liked except he thought it needed more sauce. He also had the house margarita which was good and strong. Our server was great, very... More

Love the patio. I had a prickly pear margarita-delish. Jonathon took good care of us-we had a. Dry good Mexican meal. We have been here before and will return someday. We have many Mexican restaurants we go to in the Sedona area--this is one of them.

Our first choice was Elote but the wait was too long for us, so we ended up here, conveniently located in Tlaquepaque next to our resort Los Abrigados, the music in the courtyard was too loud, the service was ok and the food was nothing special , really just standard Mexican slightly over spiced. It was our first and only... More

We come from Texas where we are serious about our salsa and margaritas, but for our second trip to Sedona this was one of our first stops. The freshly made sweet and sour they use for margaritas is the best, and we usually get the "ultimate" becuase it is a decent price for top shelf liquor. It is a good... More

This place has a very nice atmosphere, with about half of the seating outside-- which I think is great. Yes, it was a cool evening outside, but they have beautiful and soft Mexican blankets for you to wrap up in if cold--- a very nice touch! The bar is limited but the margueritas were very good. They give each person... More

We used trip advisor to find a good southwestern restaurant and it was very good. I had the tamales and my husband had the fish tacos. The patio was very pleasant and service was attentive. They brought the wrong tamale but exchanged it right away.
