We were staying at the Best Western so tried the Junction and did not eat anywhere else. The food was good and certainly plenty of it in your serving. The staff was very helpful and came back to check several times. Many locals there for meals--we even met our tour guide!

The service was excellent. Very quick and polite. The food was very average and the quantity was huge. It was also served very got - that's good. Maybe the best in Chinle - which isn't saying much. Although Subway really isn't a real restaurant, their food might be a lot healthier!

A very good range of breakfast and dinner offerings. Service is generally efficient but on one occasion it was a bit slipshod. Staff try to be helpful but if there are too many customers for the available staff then you may have a wait. Its the best in the area, so give it a go!

Stopped by for an early dinner and found the Junction open, but very busy. We were seated in a booth within a few minutes of arriving. The food was good, generous portions. This is a very casual place, don't look for fancy entree choices here. The service was very adequate

We found this restaurant in our guidebook when we reached Chinle after a long day of driving. The restaurant was easy to find on the main road next to the Best Western. The dining area was bright and comfortable, and we both enjoyed the food which was well prepared, generous in portion and arrived quickly. I particularly liked the posole... More

Chinle is not a place for "foodies"! That said, the Junction is not a bad choice if you keep the above in mind. It's busy and popular with locals as well as tourists; the menu is large, the service is okay, and overall, we had a good enough dinner while in the area. My husband had the chicken fajitas which...

This is a local restaurant for casual dining. The menu carries many traditional items and several Navajo dishes. Tried the Navajo taco and lamb stew on two different occasions. Both were good and plenty to eat. One person in our group ordered meatloaf which he loved. It was the biggest portion of meatloaf I have ever seen served at a... More

Next to hotel so very convenient at the end of a long day driving. Food was good, service was prompt. Nothing to wrote home about but nothing to complain about either.

This was a very authentic restaurant. I ordered the Navajo taco. It was good but the chili was bland. I just think that is the way they prepare their food. Service was a little slow but the previous reviewers warned about this. The restaurant was busy so it wasn't unreasonable considering it was a full restaurant.

The staff was friendly and efficient bu the food was mediocre at best. The menu was limited but our waitress was amenable to crafting a mix and match. Enjoy the scenery of the Canyon but don't expect gourmet meals.
