This restaurant was fine but after two meals, we were ready for some fruits and vegetables which are not featured prominently on the menu. They partner with Pizza Hut, so there are fast food pizzas on the menu. Service was good.

Second time we've eaten here. First time, over a year ago, was great. This time we had same dishes as before (lamb stew and Mexican food platter) but while still filling and OK not great. One item was even served burnt, but that was replaced upon request. Large menu so everyone should find something satisfactory.

This place had the best reviews in Chinle and luckily was right in the grounds of our motel. A good selection on the evening menu (I had the posole - yum!) and some delicious iced tea. Breakfast was also good value.

There are really only two choices for dining in Chinle -- The Junction Restaurant and Dennys. Choices are typical diner fare, good but not extravagant. By the way, the entire area is alcohol free -- meaning no beer or wine service with dinner. Desserts were OK.

We, wife and myself, did our research before making the trip to Canyon De Chelly and on Tripadvisor we found some good reviews of this restaurant. Also, let's be honest here, would you really do all the driving to get here only to eat at a restaurant chain that is in your town. Didn't think so. I continue, this place... More

Local fare, tasty and generous servings; I had the beef stew and stepped back into time... yum! My traveling companions were equally pleased with their choices. Not fancy, local families plentiful; it's a great place for any meal of the day.

Meal was just okay but it appeared there were a good number of local folks eating there. Like everything else you don't have many options in Chinle but the meal we had was not worth the money.

I really wanted to like the place. The wait staff was friendly and welcoming. Food was plentiful, and tasty but my lamb sandwich tasted a heck of a lot like beef instead of lamb.
