This is a great place for Mexican food. The best I have found in Sedona. The service is good and attentive. They have a 10% discount for locals. Great place for lunch or dinner.

When we are interested in Mexican we go the Javelina Cantina. Great Chicken Fajitas and margaritas. We have had other meals like taco salad and they are great as well. We frequent this restaurant often.

We have been here on two other trips to Sedona and definitely wanted to return on this third visit. The food did not disappoint us at all - we enjoyed every bite! The chips and salsa are very good and as before they brought us a "hotter" salsa which we mixed with the mild version they normally serve. We always... More

We went here for lunch after a hike in Sedona. It was really nice. The waiter was great. I got to practice my spanish which I always love to do. We also tried chile colarado, tamale and enchiladas. All were good. An enjoyable lunch altogether.

Just really good food time after time. The green chili pork is great. The enchiladas and chile plates are very good. The place was filled with locals.

We came here for dinner after driving from Las Vegas and some Mexican and a margarita is exactly what we needed. The steak fajitas were amazing. very flavorful and tender pieces of meat (I feel like fajita meat can be easily overcooked) and we had their specialty enchiladas which i thought were also fantastic. And you can't go wrong with... More

We had a surprisingly delicious dinner here. Their queso dip is the best I've ever had--loaded with veggies and with a slightly sweet taste. The green chile and corn tamale was outstanding. My wife had tortilla-crusted tilapia that she said was superb. Great service too. Be prepared to wait for a table, because everyone else also knows how great Javelina's... More

We ate at this restaurant twice. The food I ordered each time was wonderful but some items, pork dish, wasn't the best and didn't have much flavor.

Very good service, high quality ingredients, tasty food. Highly recommended. Better food than their dorky javelina logo might lead you to expect. The pork carnitas and salmon tostada were very tasty. Would go there again.
