Food was prepared well as well as nicely presented. Complete surprise. Only problem for us that our tour ended after 7PM and they close early on Sat.

The food and the service here were excellent. Our only complaint is that they closed at 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday night! We had to eat dinner at a Burger King. Ugh.

The food was very good and the service also was great. Again had read complaints about this being expensive, but we found it reasonably priced with very good food and the staff friendly and courteous.

Best service in town; but the food was not. Maybe I caught them on a bad day. The soup was hot and bland. The bread was greasy and bland. The wait staff was attentive and professional.

Dear Guest: Thank you for dining with us. We appreciate your business. We try and season all of our food to all guests tastes but sometimes can be challenging. The Navajo Fry Bread is a native specialty and is deep fried. We do appreciate your comments. Thank you. Warm regards, Guest Relations Manager More

We ate here 3 separate times while in Chinle Az. Each time we were seated quickly, the food came out fast and was very well prepared. There are not a lot of choices for dining in Chinle, but this was a nice surprise.

I want to like this place. The staff are pleasant and helpful but here's where the menu is where the rubber meets the road and there are holes. Pick your items carefully. The Native items on the menu such as the Lamb stew or burger are pretty good. The lamb could have used some more seasoning but at least I'm... More

My husband and I were only in town for 2 days. Although we stayed at the Holiday Inn, we were not pleased with their restaurant. So after eating Burger King yesterday, we decided to try the Junction Restaurant or Pizza Hut. Nice that it was all the same place. Pizza Hut showed on the little city map, but not on... More

We were only in Chinle for a couple of days, and this became our eatery of choice. It seemed that there was really only a couple places in town (either here or the Holiday Inn) and The Junction has a better variety in their menu. It's nothing fancy. Just decent food at a reasonable price. We also found the service... More

We visited Chinle to see Canyon de Chelly. This is a very small town in a remote area in Northeast Arizona, so your choices are incredibly limited. Junctions is part of the Best Western hotel, and one of the few non-fast food restaurants in the area. The menu offered a variety of choices. We were there for dinner, so there... More
