We were somewhat disappointed in our last restaurant visit in Sedona . The portions were large but quailty and flavor was lacking. Service was great and the views are stunning.

Loved the environment of this place and I’m sure it’d be even better on a clear day for the views. I got a chicken chimichanga and my girlfriend and I shared the Mexican Street corn appetizer. Both were delicious!

I didn't order it but saw it served, looked like everything but the kitchen sink. I believe you can pick your protein either beef or chicken. It was piled high.
