We went to Criollo's with six other people on a Friday night. We selected it as Criollos was relatively new and the menu looked exciting with entree prices averaging only $15.00. We very much enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Everything we ordered was delicious. The server suggested their seasonal margaritas which were tasty as well. The evening was great... More

Was it a bad night, was 5:15 too early? We were seated and waited about 15 minutes to get water served. We tried to make reservations but online and via phone no reservations less than 6 people. Waited 10 to 15 minutes to have our order taken. We ordered the catfish tacos which were good. The bison burger was ok,... More

The fish tacos always make you come back, and they are nice and cheap during happy hour. The chef makes some amazing specials and seasonal entries, including an amazing grits and pork belly. We tried it just to try it, and it was amazing. Lots of food sourced locally, and a good wine list. Can get crowded but that shouldn't... More

The manager was really nice suggesting wines and providing alternative suggestions when what we had initially ordered was out of stock. Service was very attentive. The food is good and the location in bustling old Flagstaff is great. We were disappointed that several things we ordered we out such as the special ice cream of the evening. Portions are generous.

1st, AMAZINGLY delicious Margaritas. I had the mango basil, yummy! Next I had the evening special this was so yummy and filled with the local ambiance of flagstaff. The staff were wonderful and we enjoyed the quaint town. We also had the nachos and avocado dip, both were awesome. I don't think there's a bad dish on the menu.

We stopped here for lunch because we are fond of latin foods. This is a small restaurant and the food was pretty good, but not quite what we were expecting. I ordered the Cuban sandwich, which was good, but not a cuban like I'm used to. That said I probably wouldn't order it again. They had a lot of other... More
