The signature dish Navajo Tacos is NOT even close to what you can get elsewhere. I had Chicken Green Chile! It's all vegetarian, maybe three bites of chicken and NO Green Chile... The staff walks around doing nothing. Only the hosted in the front, could...take are order, bring us water, brought are food and check.... The owner should be embarrassed of the quality of food and the service here. Pack a lunch or go across the street to the cedar cafe.More

I am really, really, really sorry that you felt the need to write four reviews over a Navajo Taco that is mostly loved. As I said in at least one other format: AFTER YOU HAD EATEN ALL THE TOPPINGS, LEAVING ONLY A NAKED FRY BREAD...More

The choices in the area are limited and they know it. Food and service was ok. Actually food was above average for what we expected. But the staff clearly wanted to be anywhere else but there.More

Hi Happy Donor, glad our food exceeded your expectations-we have been bombarded lately with hungry guests and are critically understaffed, like most American restaurants. I love the fact that our colleagues come to work, work hard and stay positive no matter the crowd or circumstances....More

We had lunch here the day we were in Bluff. The food was good, but not great. There are few places to eat in Bluff and we appreciated that this one was open. The people who worked there were very nice.

After reading the reviews we weren't too sure of what to expect. We stayed in the area late February, early March, so not a busy season. But I have to say we really enjoyed the Twin Rocks Cafe. This is not a typical diner, they...infuse their offerings with a local flavor that may not be perfect for everyone, but we loved. The Navajo Blue Corn pancakes were amazing, The Eggs Astidi was unique and delicious, The Bears Ears Scramble, and the Biscuits and Gravy were all perfectly done. The price is more than your typical chain diner or breakfast place, but we felt the quality of the food balanced that well. The young ladies that served us were pleasant and efficient, checking on us appropriately. We were very pleased with their service on the 4 times that we visited them. I believe this is a Must Try if you are in the area and willing to try something a little different than the usual.More

The club sandwich was excellent, and the fires were hot and tasty. However, the prices were high, even for a remote place, but there are no other good options.

We were driving from the four corners to monument valley and this was where we stopped for lunch on the way. We visited in mid March 2022 and the place wasn't busy. We were seated right away. If you were walking around inside the building...you were supposed to wear a mask but if you were seated, you didn't have to, we followed the rules. We picked this place because we were really excited about having fry bread tacos and that is something this restaurant is known for. We got a chicken and green chili with beans taco and one pork carnitas taco. I went for the pork taco because it was the only one on the menu that didn't have beans and I'm not a huge fan of beans, although I will eat them if given them. Sadly, both tacos came with a ton of beans. Ultimately, that wasn't the problem, because I can eat around them, or just eat them, it's not a big deal. It was just a let down that there were beans on a taco when the menu didn't say anything about beans. The biggest drawback, and the reason for the "average" rating, is that the food was super bland. It was lacking flavor, as if they hadn't used any salt or spice to make their food. We have had fry bread tacos before, so we have something to compare this experience to, and sadly, the food was just average. We enjoyed the food, and ate our lunch, but it just didn't have much flavor. If we were to go again, we'd probably skip the fry bread tacos and try something else to see if it's more flavorful.More

First off this is a majestic location 🏜 We ate 3 meals here during our 4 days stay in the area. The native inspired food was amazing and every was delicious… although it is $$. The service however was absolutely awful. The waitress acted bothered...to even help us with anything or answer any questions about the menu. She even signed loudly when we asked for more coffee our last morning, she should not be working there if she hates helping people as it’s a tourist “destination”. Sadly She was our waitress all 3 visits snd was rude every single visit. On our last day I also bought a bag of flour and blue maze to take home and was completely ignored when I tried to purchase it. So sad such a nice place and visit could be completely ruined by horrible staff.More

My visit to the twin rocks cafe, was an amazing eye opener to the love and friendliness this world is missing. Besides the food is fantastic. I am a big guy. I eat allot. The food was really pleasant, and plenty of it. Cooked right,...and the service was fast and friendly. You don’t want to miss this experience. Even if you are just passing through. Take the time to experience joy. And the view is breathtaking.More

Went here today after the hot air balloon launch. Decided to have the corned beef hash, scrambled eggs and Navaho fry bread. Fry bread came with honey butter and was very good. The corned beef hash was excellent. The hash here is to me in...the top 3 that I've ever had. Excellent flavor. And, it covered the entire plate - not just what you see in the photo for this review. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.More

Stayed in Bluff, Utah overnight before heading to Valley of the Gods and Monument Valley. Did not know about this place but saw it on the way in and decided to check it out the next morning. Had to wait as they open 8am on...the dot. The area itself lead to a mini exploration to get moving and fight the chill of a Nov morn. Love the ambiance of the place, the friendliness of the staff, and the food! Fry bread, blue corn pancakes, omelettes and endless strong coffee to fuel our adventure for the day. Definitely worth the stop!More

The food was decent but they were out of two items we ordered. I’m sure it was a supply issue and not directly their fault. When you are in between big cities, your options are limited. We made the best of it.

We stopped in here last week on a road trip from Colorado to Arizona. The breakfast was delicious. I had a cheese omelet and my husband had a veggie omelet. Portions were enormous and neither of us could finish our meals. The omelet was accompanied...by fry bread which was also very good. Wish they had been open for dinner the night before. We ate at another restaurant in town because this place wasn't open and that meal was terrible. I would definitely recommend stopping in here for breakfast if you're in the area.More

We stayed in Mexican Hat for one night on our way to the National Parks, and no restaurants were open, so we checked out and started driving to Bluff and found this great restaurant! Immaculate, with great service, we had wonderful breakfasts with the delicious...Navajo fry bread. Would highly recommend this to others.More
