Walking distance from holiday Inn express. Just outside grand Canyon National Park. Food was good and prices reasonable. Free chips and salsa is always great.

The menu is mostly mexican dishes with a good selection for meat free meals. Prices are reasonable, a refill of the chips is at extra cost. The taco salad was very good not made with ground beef. Our group of five all liked their selections

Positives: It had a colorful atmosphere and a very good menu option. Negatives: The food was lukewarm at best and lacked taste.

First time I have EVER been served Mexican Rice (vegetarian) with corn, carrots and peas....the beans were also vegetarian, bland and tasted like pinto beans that had been blended and no flavor!! I am NOT a vegetarian and saw the options for vegetarian just didn't realize that's what we were getting!! I ordered #8 with beef hard taco, cheese enchilada... More

Sophie's is a really good value dining option when visiting Tusayan. The restaurant is less busy than the other Mexican found in town, yet in many ways is more authentic. The meal size is generous with my children enjoying the buritos and tacos and both my wife and I also enjoyed the margaritas. Well worth eating at whilst staying in... More

The frozen margarita is very good. Service is friendly and fast. Food is very authentic and yummy. Overall a very nice place to eat. Have the Jalapeño poppers with the margarita.

I arrived at my hotel with my dogs late. There wasn't any dog friendly place but this little Mexican restaurant was right next to my hotel. Convenience got me to try it; plus a discount for staying at my hotel. The food was really good. Fresh and friendly servers.

My husband and I ate a late lunch there last week. We both ordered different combinations plates and everything tasted authentic. Great service and reasonable prices.

Visited this restaurant as we wanted something a bit healthier/fresher than the local fast food restaurants at a reasonable price. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the complimentary chips/salsa were a nice touch. Food all seemed to taste the same and that wasn't a good thing!
