Do you know how unusual it is for a restaurant to remain excellent two years later...especially in Historic Flagstaff? My experience is that Criollo Latin Kitchen accomplished it and upped its game with a 'Grilled Wedge'...which I just had to order. To my delight it was Romaine lettuce grilled (something new) with a chili vinaigrette, pickeled campari tomatoes, manchego, red... More

A couple of places we wanted to try in Flagstaff were closed the night we were visiting, so we chose Criollo based on Trip Advisor reviews and the fact that it was open. So glad we did! The restaurant is located in the historic downtown section of Flagstaff, so lots of charming buildings and a quaint, old town feel. We... More

The Peruvian fish stew was delicious. Staff is very pleasant and informative. Very reasonably priced. Great selections on drinks. We like how the chef explores different options presenting the food. We will definitely return.

Amazing food, packed full of flavor and piping hot. The slider and fish taco were top notch as was the service.

Just off Old Route 66 is Criollo Latin Kitchen. We stopped in early on a Monday night and found it nearly empty, but by the time we left it was hopping with activity. I had the Three Mushroom Fajitas, my partner had Catfish Tacos, and we split an Ensalada Mezclada. I was especially impressed by how much of the food... More

The special was chicken tamales and spicy salmon chowder. The tamales were good, tasted homemade, and came with a nice fresh salad. The chowder was outstanding, thick with just the right amount of heat. Also ordered were the fajitas, a bit different from Mexican style but still good. The server was pleasant, although a bit slow. We had to ask... More

My husband had fish tacos, I had calabacito tacos. Both of us very happy with our choices. Husband had house margarita, I had a seasonal one, we were on the early side for dinner so still got happy hour prices. My only complaint might be that it was loud, like many places seem to be these days. But the food... More

We visited for my wife's birthday in a party of 12. The people were very nice and accommodating, and the food was pretty good, too.

We stayed one night enroute to the Canyon. Their fancier place was closed so we came here for lunch and dinner. Excellent food. Good service. Good drinks. We felt very lucky to have happened upon this place.
