Too bad we had to settle for such awful food just because we were in Chinle. I had a lamb sandwich that was so tough I couldn't cut it with a knife or bite it with my teeth. When I told the waiter, his comment was "okay". My friend's food wasn't much better. I can't believe how many people rated... More

It shares the parking lot with the Best Western. When we arrive, the place was crowded. The customers consisted of tourist and locals. We tried some local dishes. We both had a pesole stew with Navajo Fried Bread. It was good and the other stews also looked good. The place exceeded our expectations. The restaurant does not serve alcohol.

Chinle has very few eateries of any description, the Junction Restaurant is one of two "sit down" restaurants in town. The restaurant is attached to the Best Western Canyon de Chelly and appears to be owned by the hotel's owner. As a result, you don't get a free breakfast at the BW Canyon de Chelly, with the expectation that you'll... More

We were staying at Sacred Lodge in the Park and our local tour guide suggested that we not eat dinner there and that this was the best place in town. It's a small town with very few restaurants! This was kind of like a glorified Denny's - not bad but not great. Decent meal though, for the area I would... More

This is a great place to eat authentic Navajo cuisine. There is an extensive menu which includes traditional American food. Had breakfast, lunch and dinner there and all meals were excellent with large portions. Noticed many locals eating there. Located on the Best Western property.

We were very happy with our meal. We tried the local fried bread and that was delicious. We returned here for breakfast rather than dining at the Thunderbird Lodge/Sacred Canyon Lodge.

The Junction Restaurant is in front of the Best Western Canyon de Chelly. It is a diner style restaurant. We each got the Sheepherder sandwich, which had shredded beef, swiss cheese, onions, lettuce, tomato, and diced green chiles served on Navajo fry bread.
