In the Hillsides shops area on SR 179, Javelina Cantina is one of Mark Shugrue’s successful Arizona restaurants. The Cantina has been serving house-made traditional Mexican food in Sedona for many years. The food’s consistent quality keeps locals, part-timers, and tourists coming in. The menu includes fajitias, carne asada, tacos, tostadas, quesadillas with chicken, beef, or fish and shellfish choices. Our super steak burrito came with beans, rice, guacamole and crème fraiche. The meat was tender and plentiful. The slow-cooked shredded beef machaca chimichaunga was served enchilada-style (green sauce for this diner) and came with beans, rice, guacamole and crème fraiche. The sauce was light; the beef was well-seasoned. Both burros were stuffed with the meats. And, huge! These Cantina specials were just under $15 each. The Cantina prides itself on its salsa and margaritas and rightfully so. Again, the servings are large. The restaurant offers special deals Monday-Thursday (e.g., Taco Tuesdays) and happy hour is daily from 3-6 pm. Yes, these tourists will return.
