Sustainable, organic, fresh, & tasty!

We were very impressed when we dropped into Criollo on a late Saturday. They use only locally sourced, organic ingredients straight from surrounding farms, and it shows.

Very nice people greeted us on a Sunday evening. Tacos are one of their specialties so three of us ordered different ones and shared: carne asada, bison and short rib (you get three tacos plus beans and rice). And we all agreed that the short rib was the best that night.

I dropped in for dinner around 7:30 pm on a Thursday and the only seat available was at the bar--which was fine. There are a number of dishes that fall halfway between appetizer and main course, just the right size if you are not starving. The margarita was one of the best in my life! Less expensive than most places,... More

This restaurant was recommended by another restaurant who was closing when we passed through Flagstaff and we are sort of happy this was the case! I had the Cubano sandwich and it was delicious! My fiancé ordered the special which was a salmon quesadilla and it was equally good. The waiter was very friendly. Although we were there for lunch... More

I love to go here for happy hour. They have some of the best fish tacos and gourmet sliders ever for $2 each and their $3 jalapeno margaritas are delicious! Its almost always busy though, so plan to wait for a table for larger groups.

I picked this place based on reviews. It isn't the type of food I would normally eat but it was all quite tasty. We stopped in for a late lunch and we all enjoyed our food, two kinds of tacos, a bowl of chili and a pulled pork sandwich.

We ate there twice, and I am very sorry we tried a different one (not too good) the third and last night. The food was well prepared and pretty to look at but I do not remember all I ate, probably vegetarian dishes. I do remember a very good corn soup, warm and wonderful after a very cold evening at...

We love good food and Criollo is one of the best restaurants we have been to. The coconut calamari was excellent. The duck tacos were really really good and the pork belly tacos were over the top. The service was quick, our waiter was informative and accommodating. The margaritas were maybe the best we have ever tasted. We went early... More

Criollo (Cree-oh-yo) is a dynamite stop especially for lunch when walking around downtown Flagstaff. Wonderful Latin fare and great Margaritas. The Happy Hour scene is lively and really fun!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there last night. I am drawn to places that use locally sourced ingredients and Criollo didn't disappoint. Everything was fresh and delicious. We started with great cocktails and an appetizer of Serrano ham and manchego. Lovely. I had the veggie releno for my entree. Nice and spicy served over a great polenta. My husband had... More
