Delicious food awaits!

We were on our way from Sedona to the Grand Canyon and spent the night in Flagstaff. Read about it and decided to give it a try. The establishment promotes local farmers and area growers. We ordered chicken breast on a sage sauce over sweet potatoes. Well, they fresh out of chicken breast and... read more

I guess I was in the mood at this point in our trip for someplace quiet and this certainly is not. That said it is just the way it is and just something to keep in mind. The staff was very nice, fast service and the menu was...interesting. Again, not my thing but my clients seemed to enjoy it so... More

I had the Paella. It was not very flavorful. My husband does a better job! The swordfish was ok but a bit fishy smelling. Fresh swordfish is not fishy? The wait staff were wonderful.

Started off this wonderful visit with some Bacon and Jalapeno Nachos, yum! The bacon is thick cut and extremely flavorful. While we were at, we also got the Shrimp and Grits which were fantastic as well. The pork was tender and tasty. We ended the meal with the Beef Chorizo Enchiladas which wasn't my favorite part of the meal, but... More

My daughter and I wandered in for lunch and were happy we did. Everything we tasted was so good. I had the Achiote Mushroom Tacos and Poblano Cheddar Grits and my daughter had the Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich. It was an added bonus that everything was local!

We ate here on two consecutive nights during our visit to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. The Relleno Vegetales and Eggplant Calabacitas were exceptionally good--among the tastiest we have ever had--as were two of the homemade salad dressings. The atmosphere was upbeat but not too loud or hectic, relaxing after a day of hiking.

While visiting Arizona, my family and I were looking for tasty SW fare. Although not categorized as SW, I think Criollo satisfied our SW wishes. The hardest part about dining there is making a choice on what to eat! I settled on the green chili braised chicken with poblano cheddar grits and orange agave brussel sprouts. Delicious! My husband had... More

We dropped in with a party of eight for dinner (including one and four year old grandchildren) and the staff was very helpful, stowing our stroller and quickly securing a child seat. We really enjoyed the appetizers - nachos (with bacon, quickly inhaled) and the soup of the day (roasted peppers, potatoes & leeks). I had the paella (with mahi-mahi... More

Right off the main drag is a great bar and restaurant. The food was fantastic. There was BBQ pork sands, Criollo burger, and that Special garlic mass Monterey red pork tamales (there were 2) and side salad. Awesome meal.
