Favorite Mexican Food in Flagstaff

We love going here on weekends for Navajo Tacos, Burritos, or Carnitas plates. They have a salsa bar with 5 or 6 different kinds of salsa, from the very tame to devilishly spicy! Their food is always fresh and hot, and the waitstaff is great. Their margaritas are good too! I'm still looking for a... read more

This was my 2nd visit to Salsa Brava Restaurant. This visit was much better than the 1st visit because our Server was excellent and very attentive. The food was just as good as our first visit but I loved the dish I chose this visit. I had a Chicken Burrito with a Cilantro Cheese sauce with a side of fresh... More

I have been going to Salsa Brava since the 90's. Every year they add new tastes and provide a favorite I can't get enough of. Particularly love the salsa bar and fish tacos for my fast lunches.

After moving to Flagstaff last year, I couldn't believe we could be so close to the Mexican border, yet the mexican food was so unauthentic and bland. Salsa Brava is about the best mexican food you're going to find in town, it's not great, but it's the lesser of the evils. It has convenient parking. It's wheelchair accessible if you... More

Driving through Flagstaff and read the DDD review. Disappointed. Kids said theirs was good. Lobster and shrimp enchilada wasn't. Taco bravada also fair. Sigh

been here several times and the atmosphere is great, the drinks are good, the food is just ok, and the service is generally good. The prices exceed the experience.

Stumbled upon on the way to the hotel. Really excellent and fresh food. Lots of staff meant great service. I had the cilantro cream enchiladas which were fantastic. I especially liked the grilled vegetables in lieu of rice and beans option - they were really fresh and al dente.

First visit was so good that we returned the next evening. The salsa bar is gorgous, several types and some real spicy. Had the best mole and best Key Lime Pie in US there so far-including Key West. Service was one day gorgous and average on the 2nd.
