My favorite happy hour in Flagstaff

There is no better happy hour in Flagstaff, I love the fish tacos and jalapeno margaritas. The locals are all well aware of the happy hour menu and it is often busy 3-6.

The braised beef in the ropa vieja was excellent. The paella was also very good except that the rice was undercooked. For dessert they attempt to replicate a Madrid favorite, churro and chocolate. Although quite the tasty treat the churro disintegrates making it difficult to enjoy without the aid of a fork. I really hope it was just an off... More

Didn't exactly know what the "Latin" foods consisted of. Turned out to be a great lunch. Nice variety of foods. We had a fantastic waiter too.

Criollo's Latin Kitchen starts with a simple, unassuming sidewalk presentation but changes into a warm, comfortable atmosphere that includes a nifty bar with a "locals-type" look.

We stopped here for lunch on the way back from the Grand Canyon and were quite pleasantly surprised to find this place. The service staff was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious, especially the fries! Excellent beer and wine selection.

Very friendly and attentive staff. The dishes are creative like salmon with black beans and cream sauce! Loved the nachos!! Went there twice since we found the taste surprising (in a good way) and the service very good! Their homemade spicy sauce is great!

Great spices and freshness. Criollo sources their food from local suppliers, organic when possible, grass fed meats and lots of local veggies. The menu changes with the seasons. The Salmon Tostada is devine!
