We visited Nate's after the Verde Canyon Railway trip. What a great way to end a great day. We used a Yelp coupon, and ate HALF of what we ordered!!! Why half? Because there is so much good food!!!! Leftovers were lunch the next day!! Canna was an amazing server! She made the experience fantastic!

This is one of the best restaurants I've visited. The food is great on it's own, but the service is really friendly, the atmosphere is comfortable, and the prices are good too. Usually when I go to a restaurant I find something I like and get that same thing every time I visit. If I feel like a steak, I... More

Nate's offers comfort food at its best, along with some of the most scrumptious BBQ around. Burgers, meatloaf, pot roast and then also awesome salads, too! But save room for dessert! A nice feature too is the availability of half-orders for a great price, in case you don't quite feel like stuffing yourself, it's sooooo nice to have a smaller... More

I was impressed by the numbers of locals who go to this restaurant. Clearly it is a favorite in the Cottonwood area. While the service was a little lacking, the food was excellent and atmosphere was homey. The value was excellent and the portions were appropriate. Thanks to the family atmosphere, you can take children to this restaurant.

We were visiting the area and saw a groupon for this. Great deal. The atmosphere is pretty "western bar" but the food was surprisingly good. Waitress was very friendly and helpful to out of town guests. If I lived in this area I'd probably visit quite a bit for good food and very reasonable prices

Would definitely go back if we were in the area. My boyfriend and I (visiting from Toronto) asked for a restaurant reference at a local gas station ... great referral to Nate's! We had the 2 for $10 burger and side special. Great food & great value. Also we shared the bread pudding for dessert. Outstanding. Yes, seriously! The best... More

Excellent food, qantities and prices. Every dish I saw coming from the kitchen looked fantastic. We had the pork chops and the combination Barbie sampler with the "great" sweet potato fries, plus we did the soup and salad bar for just $3 more. What a meal!!! Home made soups are out of this world and the home made cucumber vinegar... More

We had the BBQ burger with a smokey burger, cheddar cheese, bacon and onion rings on top. It was very good! We also ordered the daily special tuna melt. It was like no other!! It had lots of quality bacon and even real crumbled bacon on top!! The prices are cheap and the food is yummy! We drove from Sedona,... More
