The stew is good and service was quick. Tortillas were actually hand made too. All the workers were friendly and kept the drinks filled

Service was friendly, quick, and attentive. Food was well prepared and portions were huge. Limited menu, heavy on the fried foods. No fresh green vegetables, although you can get a chef salad.

Heard lots of fellow bilagaana complaining about lack of choices. Try something new! EAT the lamb stew - yes, the meat tastes different. TRY the blue corn pancakes - yes, the texture is grainy...it's corn! GREAT Navajo tacos/frybread. They have a great selection of familiar dishes, but try something different!

If you like vegetables, you won't find many here. (I'm not a vegetarian, btw.) Easy to see why there's so much obesity among the Navajo, with the emphasis on fried bread & carbs. The simple Blue Corn Meal Mush for breakfast is delicious.

This restaurant is located in the parking lot of the Best Western and is quite convenient for dinner and breakfast. The food is fresh and well-prepared. There is a diverse menu, including an excellent deep-dish pizza. The chicken fajitas are also a good choice. The service is fast and it seems to be the best place to eat in Chinle.... More

This is a busy restaurant in the middle of Chinle. Fry bread (I had a Navajo taco which has fry bread, lettuce, tomatoes, meat, and traditional seasoning) is excellent, and the portions are generous. Good and friendly wait staff. Prices seem a bit high.

The Junction is a decent restaurant with a relatively wide selection of meals. Pleasant service. I recommend the the lamb stew which was full of big chunks of lamb, carrots and potatoes. Very good and not full of flour. In fact, it was closer to a broth. Portion was very generous and served with Navaho bread, (fried dough?). I would... More

The sandwiches we ate were good but nothing special. Considering not many independent cafe choices in Chinle, this was the best choice. Service was a bit slow but the restaurant was pretty full at the time.
