Was a little nervous bout going there after reading some of the reviews.We were very pleasantly surprised.The waitress was delightful and very efficient. The food was very good especially the fried bread. My only complaint was the portions were way too big.I guess that is not a bad complaint!

The Junction Restaurant is within the Best Western Hotel property. Even if we slept in the BW Hotel we went to the Junction Restaurant only for breakfast since the closing time in the evening was too early for us. Good breakfast and very nice atmosphere.

We were visiting Canyon de Chelly NM and needed lunch. This place was perfect. We had Navajo Lamb Tacos, which are huge and yummy. The service was good. The menu choices spanned Navajo and American and from what I could see of other diners, all portions are huge. Definitely recommend.

We ate two meals in this restaurant. The menu is eclectic and could probably offer something to most travelers. The first night I ordered the Navajo taco which is constructed similar to a tostada. A piece of Navajo flat bread covered the plate instead of a tortilla and was topped with mild chile beans, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and olives. The... More

Had a fantastic dinner here. My wife and I both had the "Sheepherder" which was the best meal we had during our entire holiday. The does use genuine Navajo fry bread but it is not crispy because it absorbs the juices from the meat, onions and chilis it wraps. It also offers a reduced Pizza Hut menu which was great... More

The options in Chinle are limited for dining. We found our meal at Junction superior to that at Garcia's -- the other non-chain option. I had the lamb stew recommended by our tour guide earlier in the day -- which was a novel dish to me (lots of celery and tender lamb in a light broth) -- which I enjoyed.... More

This restaurant is right next door to the hotel where we stayed, and I really didn't know what to expect. They have a very varied menu, which includes some Navajo dishes.

When in the Canyon de Chelly area, I stay at the Best Western due in part, to its adjacent location to the Junction Restaurant. The Junction has a varied menu from Navajo dishes to American dishes.

My low rating of service and food is based on two things. I did take-out and the women up front were friendly and the food was ready in ~10 minutes. Like others have noted, the fry bread was good. However, I ordered lamb stew. If that is what I received then it is the most watery stew I've ever had.... More

This is a long time local favorite in the area. Their best dishes are the traditional Navajo dishes served with fry bread or Navajo tortilla. They are able to seat large groups together.
