Order a margarita!

Let me start by saying that the margaritas were fabulous! Services was a little slow, but the food came out quickly once ordered. Recommend the fish tacos.

We tried Sophie's after a day of hiking in the Grand Canyon and were excited based on the overall feel of the restaurant and how busy it was. The service was good, but the food left much to be desired. The salsa tasted like pureed boiled green peppers. I had the carnitas which was listed as one of their specialities.... More

I usually don't write a review unless I can say something positive but I felt my fellow travelers must be warned. We were staying in the area to enter the park in the morning and I wanted to treat my wife to a great meal. Most of the choices that we saw were fast food or pizza and Sophie's Mexican... More

Delicious Sangria. Good food and decent service. Pretty quiet night in the off season for them but glad they were open as not much else was.

we stopped in here after a long drive from vegas We are both vegetarians and love Mexican food, Upon arrival we stood for a few minutes before anyone approached us, not a friendly smile in sight, Our initial server who took our drinks order looked as though her cat had died that morning and she was being forced to work....

pleasant surprise. Reasonably priced food in a very pricey area. They had Fry Bread! Good service. Wasn't very busy, but it's off season I guess.

One of the few restaurants in Tusayan. While the food was decent, they are very overpriced. The 2 times we have eaten here the service was good & the margaritas were great. Most everything in town closes early in the winter so this is one of the very few still open later in the evening. Still better than the Overpriced... More

Only had one margarita, which was delicious, and I was flying high. I've never had such an effect from just one alcoholic drink. Maybe it was the altitude but I was asleep by 8.30 pm, slept 11 hours and woke up feeling great. The food was tasty, too!

Horrible service, out of queso (really?), okay food. Wasn't busy and yet they were VERY slow. I got over charged and explained to the guy at the register (who can't stay in the restaurant). I explained to him our son was charged $3.28 for his drink although it was suppose to included into his meal. He kept saying no no... More
