Was in the mood for Mexican, but soon found out it was a poor choice. Credit to the ONE waitress for trying her hardest to keep up by herself..

We didn't realize this is a rather famous restaurant (a number of people asked if we had dined there after our trip and we are from the Toronto, Canada area). It was later in the evening and there were very few people (so I was a bit apprehensive), it turned out great, the staff were friendly, the drinks made well.... More

Can't say the food was horrible, it didn't kill me. it was completely bland and not authentic. I'm pretty sure I ate tomatoes from a can with no other flavors. Service was really bad, extremely overpriced for canned food. Found chef boyardee to have better flavor and it's only $1. I recommend you eat chef boyardee and spend your hard... More

We ate at the bar instead of waiting for a table, food was good, drinks were very good and prices fair. Bartender was helpful with a good sense of humor.

There are not a lot of options in Tusayan once you've passed over McDonald's and Wendy's. The concierge at my hotel recommended Sophie's for tacos so I went in on a Monday evening around 7pm (October). It was fairly crowded but I was seated right away. They bring you chips & salsa immediately. My server was also over quickly to... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food we had at lunch time here. My husband had chicken fajitas and liked them. I had a quesadilla, which I found to be delicious. The coffee was good and service was friendly and efficient. If we were looking for a place to eat again in Tusayan, I would most definitely... More

This family-style Mexican restaurant just outside the Grand Canyon Park provides good Mexican food at fair prices. The service was friendly and prompt. I would particularly recommend the carnitas.

I guess it's ok when you are hungry but I eat Mexican food a lot. I'm crazy for it and I didn't really like it there. I had quesadillas. The mararaita was nice though.

Compared to the Mexican restaurants we are accustomed to, Sophie's was very average. Service was a bit slow and the food was nothing special. The portions were good, but the price was typically high like other restaurants in tourist areas. Overall, it is an average Mexican restaurant and I wish we had checked the reviews before stopping.

Visited here after our grand canyon tour, and was welcomed by a friendly waiter. We had enchiladas which were a huge portion. Food was nice, and the place is obviously popular as it was getting very busy was we left.

Thank kir2
