Denny's type at a higher price

You are very locked in and limited in this town. we picked this due to it's proximity to our hotel. Kids had burgers. I had a Navajo taco. tasted very much like something I could get at home or any where else. Signs warn you of a long wait but it wasn't too bad.

There are very few places to eat in Chinle and this one was simple but adequate. The food choices are basic with strong Navajo/Mexican influences. Service was good. It appears to be a place frequented by many locals which is always a good sign to me.

Four adults dined here while visiting Canyon de Chelly. The food was home cooked. Service was excellent. We were pleased with our meals. As a vegetarian, I struggled with Chinle restaurants, but the veggie meal I had was good.

Was certainly local food eaten with the locals. If you expect fancy, don't bother coming to Chinle. If you enjoy people and history make the visit. Foods was homecooking. Good service. Friendly.

I had dinner one night and breakfast the next morning here. Nothing special about the breakfast, and it took a while to arrive. For the dinner, I ordered the Sheepherders sandwich, which comes on fry bread. It was pretty good, but I could look at everyone else in the restaurant and see how a diet of Navajo restaurant food wouldn't... More

Chinle does not have much to offer but the service and staff did a great job. The Junction is associated with the Best Western and is convenient to that hotel.

I stay at the Best Western in Chinle several times year and frequently meet friends at The Junction for lunch or dinner. As others have said, sometimes the service can be a bit slow, especially if they are very busy. The food is always great. Love the Navajo Tacos and the Sheepherder's Special. The Pizza Hut pizzas are good, too.... More
