I had chili, whew, hot but good. No alcohol available. Would have loved to have had more Native American traditional fare, though...

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. I wonder if I was being played for a fool. Extensive menu. The desserts looked gigantic. Portions are large, so it's a good value. There aren't... More

Great little restaurant, in the heart of Navajo Country. The wait staff were very friendly and well trained. Food fair was typical, but nicely done. I would recommend the beef stew with Indian Fry Bread. Lots of fast food places in town, but here, you can sit, relax and let them do the work.

Everyone said this was the best place in town, and they are probably right. Not much else in Chinle, but we found the food to be well-prepared and the service good. Can't go wrong with a Navajo Taco and Posole. No alcohol, of course. We picked up a Pizza Hut pizza there the next night, and it was very good.

I sometimes struggle with the "1-5 star" ratings choices as there are places that fall between. This would be one such place. Adjacent to the Best Western Canyon de Chelly Inn, this was our go-to restaurant on my recent trip to Canyon de Chelly with my hubby. We ate 2 breakfasts, 2 dinners, and one lunch here during our stay.... More
