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.

Luckily, the Junction had 2 things going for it for us: it was open until 9 and it was across the street from a public laundry, a much needed business. The food was good. The regular "any restaurant has" food was ok, but the local pork chili, navajo taco, pasole, and fry bread were absolutely delicious. To get good food,... More

Need a place to eat while in Chinle? Junction is a great place to stop with your family or if on your own. Loved the beef stew with fry bread and of course had a Navajo taco. Awesome waitress who was personable and friendly. Will always come back when passing through!

Took my wife and friends to Chinle to visit my home stomping grounds; everything had changed significantly in the past 40 years. But we sure found good food for lunch at the Junction. I recommended the Navajo Tacos and they did not disappoint; they were very large, so I should have shared one with my wife. I saw a Navajo... More

When we travel through this area, we always make a point of planning a stop here to eat a meal. We get tired of fast food while traveling and this stop is definitely worth it. We had breakfast. The sausage gravy was excellent! The scone (fry bread) was awesome! The service was good too!

This is a quiet restaurant favored by locals and tourists. There is a limited menu of restaurant staples and some Navajo dishes. We stayed at the Best Western and ate both dinner and breakfast here. Both meals were good, and I definitely recommend the blue corn pancakes! If you are looking for gourmet fare, this is not your place, but... More

Your eating options are limited in Chinle, and this place is average at best, but apparently your best bet.

We went here based on TripAdvisors reviews. It is a huge restaurant and appears to have had a previous life as a pizza place. This would not be the place for a romantic dinner. It is a place where tour buses stop since there are few restaurants in Chinle, and it serves a definite need in this regard. We were... More
