Each visit to Sedona we stop here. My taco salad was like none that I had eaten before. It was huge and delicious. I could not eat it all. My husband got chicken fajitas that he loved.

Great hamburger, enchilada and queso! They don't offer sweet tea, but did give a small cup of hot water to dissolve my sugar. That's service.

This restaurant was good. I wasn't totally blown away but it is a solid choice when dining in the area. There is also a chance for some nice views depending on where you are seated.

Were here for lunch and ordered the queso dip. More than abundant for two people to share and extremely tasty. Service was very friendly and excellent. Both the Chili relleno and the chicken mole enchilada are superb.

Chips and salsa were not good. Salsa is bland - chips only mediocre. House margaritas only 4 out of 10. Shrimp tacos and fish tacos were not flavorful. Rice and beans were very good. Service was excellent. Won't go back. Lots of room for improvement.

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.
