Good food, good experience

My wife and I had dinner one night, and breakfast the next day. Even though the Junction is almost the "only game in town", we had a very pleasant experience. For dinner, I had the Navajo taco, and it was quite tasty, fresh, and satisfying. My wife had the posole stew, and it was really tasty. We... read more

Visited The Junction twice during a recent stopover at the Best Western Canyon De Chelly. We had an evening meal and a breakfast the next morning. The evening meal I went for some food I had never tried before, and went for a Navajo dish . Unfortunately as a vegetarian I couldn't see an option, but our server was so... More

Had dinner here. Not so good. Nothing is fresh. Fries taste like the freezer. Canned beans, flat tasteless burgers, fake cheese. Not inexpensive either. Service was good though. Not many good dining choices in Chinle. We should have went to Subway again.

This restaurant is adjacent to but not part of the Best Western Hotel in Chinle. Our previous experience of food in Navajo areas - Tuba City and The View - had led us not to expect too much but we were more than pleasantly surprised. The food is ' American Diner' but is well prepared and the service very friendly.... More

We dined here based on the generally good reviews. Our conclusion is that the food is OK, but not great. The service was very good.

It looks pretty plain next to the chain hotel but it's supposed to be the better eatery in town. I had a large breakfast that was satisfying. Learned the sausage gravy was not made in house so I'm not sure how fresh their ingredients are. The vegetables were tasty and fresh so maybe their harvested locally!?

After checking in to the adjacent Best Western we decided to have dinner here. When we walked in, we were greeted by an unfriendly hostess, Arlissa. She asked how many, grabbed menus and stomped her way to a table where she just threw the menus down and walked off. She didn't say anything about server being right with us or... More

We had a great lunch here as we were passing through. The chili pork soup was so good I wish I had ordered a bowl instead of a cup. My husband had the Shepherds sandwich and described it as "very tasty ". The service was friendly and efficient.

It's truly "all good". Been frequenting this establishment for almost 2 decades. One of the few locations left in the Navajo Nation still serving mutton stew and fry bread on the regular menu. The traditional offerings are all top shelf and the deep-dish pizza rivals NYC and ChiTown. Something for everyone, adults and youth alike!
