“Good Food ~ Outdoor misters to beat the heat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were visiting Sedona in mid-August, so it was very hot... around 100 degrees. Some Mexican food & a cold drink sounded good. Once we saw the outside seating with the misters going, we knew Taos Cantina was where we needed to go. The menu isn't super extensive like alot of Mexican restaurants are. My husband ordered the fish tacos and I ordered a burrito. Both were absolutely delicious! Drinks were good too. Although we LOVED the misters, my husband was pretty soaked by the time we were done eating. Other than that, we would definitely return there next time we are visiting Sedona.

“Good Food, Drinks and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were a little concerned at first about eating here after some of the reviews but we tried it and ended up coming back because we liked it. The first time was for dinner. The food was very good and the margaritas were even better. The tacos come on small corn tortillas and were very good. The server was very friendly and attentive. We went back for lunch the next day with friends and it was just as good. Between us we tried several different margaritas and liked them all. Our server was very busy with a big group and several tables at lunch but she still did a great job of staying on top of getting us everything.

“Just So So...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

In the heart of uptown Sedona, this "Mexican" restaurant offered a style of Mexican food that is nothing similar to what Arizona natives are used to and have acquired a taste for. The serving sizes were marginal, the prices average, the service average. If you aren't into mobs of people and resort sharks stay away from Uptown Sedona.
