Local sourced - always a good thing

Achiote mushroom tacos. Where can you get these? Neve have had them before. I love to eat at restaurants where the food items are locally sourced and identified. This little place, cozy and busy even on a Tuesday night, had a short menu, but I found just what I needed. Give it a try the next time... read more

I love this restaurant. In addition to the regular menu, there are always a few delectable specials. I had a smashed avocado, followed by two large freshly made tamales, which came with a perfectly dressed side salad. The iced tea flavors are also delish!

We have eaten dinner here, and it was great. Criollo was recently named "best happy hour" in the local newspaper, the Daily Sun. It is very popular - go early. Considering the place, very good prices on drinks (specific cocktails, beer, and wine). But there are only two food choices: fish tacos and beef sliders. Both were very good. Excellent... More

I ate here twice on the same trip! Once for dinner with a friend and the second time solo for lunch. Both experiences were outstanding. This restaurant really knows how to make delicious and delicate flavor combinations dance on the tastebuds! The nachos are a must order appy and the tacos were top notch! Also the margaritas made from organic... More

We have been travelling for a few days through CA and now AZ.... And this was the first GREAT meal we've had! The servers were friendly and super helpful with menu items and local Flagstaff goings on. Things were brought promptly, and cleared right away. Our water bottle was never empty. The margaritas are amazing. And the jalapeño and bacon... More

Could not have chosen a better place for a meal after a day on the road. We sat at the bar and ordered two local beers, nachos, the daily tamale, and two different kinds of tacos. Order the short ribs!!!! They do an incredible job here. The food and service was superb. What a great spot in downtown Flagstaff.

tired and hungry, found this recommendation on tripadvisor. The atmosphere is pleasant and the food was quite good. Sometimes the more trendy places are overpriced for small portions, but these prices were very reasonable. The portions are average but filling and beautifully presented, also delicious. We could tell the diners here were locals and everyone around us seemed happy with... More

The staff is knowledgeable and clearly happy working here based on their outgoing and pleasant nature despite being very busy. We had a wide variety of dishes, all were delicious. If you are sensitive to spicy food, you... More

Really happy this place was recommended to me by Flagstaff locals. I came here on New Years Eve and couldn't be happier with the quality of food and service. The fish special (mahi mahi) was amazing. Totally happy to recommend to all. Enjoy!
