Spent a long weekend in Sedona with friends. We picked Javelina's after a long day of hiking and site-seeing. Great fun atmosphere - - had drinks at the bar - Margarita's of course and they were just what the doctor ordered. Had dinner and it was very good. We had a very leisurely relaxing time at Javelina's and would return.

I wish we could have really eaten there because the food looked awesome. The chips and salsa were yum and the bartender was very attentive in making us margaritas we were happy with. Nice, fun atmosphere.

Stopped in for lunch and were very pleased with service and portion sizes. The salsa was very tasty! Good place to stop for basic tex-mex lunch or dinner. Nothing fancy but the food was fresh, good and there was a lot of it

Pleasant dinner of good food--several twists on standard Mexican fare and dishes available include several seafood selections. Enjoyed black bean side particularly well. Call ahead if you are a large party. Some outdoor seating available, although for some reason, this was not in use on the night of our visit. Location is attractive--we took many sunset photos from the shopping... More

My husband and I go to Javelinas on a regular basis. The food is great, comes out quickly and never disappoints. We love the servers. The steak Fajitas are the very best and Vegetarians would love the Chile Rellenos. Chips are always warm and the salsa is always fresh. Mucho Bueno.

Had a solid lunch here and it didn't break the bank. 8 dollars for a taco sounds like a bit much but these are big tacos..1 is enough. The menu isn't amazing I wouldn't say it's an incredible dinner. However, the location is nice and it's worth a stop for lunch.

Street corn appetizer was awesome! There were 6 of us here on a Monday and we only had to wait for them to set the table . 3 appetizers, 6 meals, tax and 20% tip was about $130. We sat outside next to the fountain and it was great. Good food and good service. I would eat here again.

We went for dinner with a party of 8. Some people might like this kind of Mexican food but being from Cleveland we have different kind of Mexican food. Atmosphere was food. Service was good but food was just ok.

The atmosphere is spectacular with great views. The food is great, the service is exceptional. The wait can be long, but well worth it. I came during a peak weekend and waited 30 minutes for a table without a reservation. But well worth it.
