Great salsa bar

We stopped off here on our way from Sedona to the Grand Canyon. The food was good - solid. It was not over the top great - but it was good. Service was very good. The portions were generous. Prices were very reasonable. Overall I guess we are glad we stopped.....but it is not on my list... read more

During our visit in Flagstaff we found this restaurant by luck and other great reviews we read. They were not kidding. The salsa bar is great! The best part of my meal were the sour cream-cilantro chicken enchiladas. Delish! The staff was very nice and our waiter was great as well. Yummy food and reasonable.

I can't imagine a better place for Mexican food. The food was fantastic---quite different from the run of the mill menu at many other places. The salsa bar was varied in the tastes of the salsas offered, as well as the level of "heat" you might desire. The service was excellent. The food was awesome. Don't miss it!

We were looking for a good Mexican/southwestern restaurant and found a favorable review on food network. It's a small but very nice restaurant on historic Route 66. Easy to find. I ordered Carnitas because they won several awards for it and it was wonderfully delicious. My husband ordered his standard beef burrito platter and was very impressed with how good... More

A local suggested this place for lunch and since then I've been twice and had great meals. The salsa bar has several delicious choices from mild to hot to the special. Maui tacos are absolutely to die for with avocado and pineapple, but the carnitas are even better. Big portions + rice and beans are so good. Great, friendly service.... More

We are always trying new places to eat. This restaurant was rated very high. Located no far from the hotel area. First time I had heard of a salsa bar. Get you own salsa from 4 degrees of hotness. Not me. Girlfriend ordered Stuffed Sopapilla(don't ask me what it was). She loved it. I ordered Tres Generaciones. Loved the food.... More

This was an exciting little find. We were headed to Flagstaff and we were hungry. We spotted this little place from the road and decided to stop. The food was awesome! The service, we had Silvia, was great. They even have a salsa bar that is to die for.

Freshly prepared and extremely tasty, their Navajo tacos can easily feed two people and their homemade salsas and sauces are wonderful. The staff are friendly and even allowed us to stay late while we reminisced with an old friend.
