Average Mexican place. I was not a fan of the chunky salsa. Overall bland and not much spice. I assume they get lots of visitors from around the world so things are toned down. Server was nice and nice atmosphere.

This restauant has colorful and fun decor and the service was friendly and efficient. The food was good..just pretty much the standard fare for a Mexican resturant.

Sophie's looked like it was a decent Mexican restaurant but it lacked merit on almost everything. The young lady who waited on us was rude and indifferent to us. The chicken soup my wife ordered was not edible - it was way too salty. My shredded beef burrito was large but it didn't come with anything like beans and rice... More

Great food (many vegetarian options) and huge servings! The poor server was completely over-worked and seemed to be doing everything alone (so service was slow), but she was cheerful the whole time. I hope the owners understand what a gem they have in her!

After a fun day at the Grand Canyon we were famished and ready for good ole southwestern food. We spotted Sophie's Mexican Kitchen, entering the eatery. At first I was leery because of our poor experience with Plaza Bonita earlier that morning. The waiter was patient, answering the plethora of questions I had about their enchilada entree. We ordered our... More

The service was quick and efficient. I had Indian Pancake with vegetarian filling, which was very tasty. Good for lunch.

The place is really good and they provide a lot of options for vegetarians and vegans. With such limited dinning options in the Grand Canyon area, I am really surprised by the feedback people are providing. We were at this place 2 years ago and loved it, we were just back this April (2015) and still good. We ate there... More

I took my mother here for want I thought was real mexican food. The service was terrible and the food was horrible! We told the staff about the food and they didn't care and did nothing to make it better. If you go their, do so at your own risk!!

Not liking selection at our hotel we ventured out for food. This restaurant us very colorful & cheery. The wait staff is slow. We didn't get buffet but ordered off menu. Nothing special think I may have enjoyed McDonald's burrito more!

Visited at lunch time and it was a bright and cheerful place. Substantial portions and tasty too. It's nothing spectacular but good for a small town like Tusayan. Watched them clean up a table next to us after the customers had left..could be improved.
