After reading some of the mixed reviews, we didn't know what to expect. However, we decided to try the Native American dishes and they were delicious. Is it gourmet dining? No, but the prices are fair and the portions large. The green chile pork stew loaded with posole and could easily be shared by two people and rivals similar stews... More

Chinle is a small town in AZ but we noticed this spot was frequented by the locals. So we went here for breakfast while we were staying in town to see Canyon de Chelly. My husband had the breakfast skillet and I had a lite eater dish.

We just returned from dinner at Junction, fried pollock for him, lamb stew for me. Both arrived quickly for the service was swift and efficient. I have rarely seen lamb stew on a menu and since I am a fan of lamb in any form thought I'd try it. There was enough food in a large bowl for at least... More

There are not many choices in Chinle other than fast food. This was a nice diner type restaurant with comfort food served in large portions. Prices are low and service is fast. We were quickly seated. Parking is easy.

Strange Pizza Hut hybrid place. Menu is 50% Pizza Hut and 50% 'other'. Everything very processed - food by numbers. Quality poor. Even the salad was clearly out of a bag with some processed, grated cheese thrown on top. Zero atmosphere. Expensive for what it was. This town desperately needs a decent place to eat....
