“Good food at the Junction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

Highly recommended by locals. Busy at 6PM. Ordered the Sheepherders Sandwich made with "Fry Bread" --dare I try it? Absolutely, it was delicious. Mrs. had the meat loaf and said it was the best since she tasted her mother's. Can't beat that!

Dear Alabama Guest:

Welcome to the Navajo Nation and thank you for the great feedback on our food and service at the Junction Restaurant located next to the Best Western Canyon de Chelly Inn. The Sheephearder (offered with homemade tortilla or frybread) menu item is a favorite of both locals and tourists. Pleased you enjoyed it and that your guest enjoyed our fresh homemade meat loaf! Thanks again for your feedback. It is so important to us. Take care and please recommend us to others.

Best regards,

“Good Food at a Reasonable Cost”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

The menu at this restaurant has lots of variety and very interesting options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Try the lamb stew, the posole and the blue corn tortillas with honey at breakfast. Friendly, efficient service at prices that won't break the bank. The best food in Chinle!

Dear Responder to the Junction Restaurant:

We apologize that you did not get the opportunity to dine at our restaurant on Thanksgiving Day. As I did explain earlier on your other post, most, if not all restaurants are closed on Thanksgiving Day in the Chinle area. You had even commented on your other Trip Advisor post that you could not find 'any' restaurants open on that day, not even fast food. This is because the area does not get many visitors on that day. We do advise our guests upon making reservations that we are closed on that day. We are sorry that you gave us an unfair rating without even dining in our restaurant. We do serve good homemade food.

Best regards,
SK Barnett

“Clean, dependable, good food with some local specialties”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

We ate here twice while visiting Canyon de Chelly. The food isn't fancy but it's good. We enjoyed the lamb stew with Navajo tortillas. Ours was very flavorful. The staff was friendly, efficient, and took obvious pride in running a quality operation. There were several other local items on the menu I'd have tried had we been in town longer (of course, we love lamb, and getting good lamb, well prepared is unusual).

“Generic Food, Good Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Large selection of generic family food choices. Not much if your looking for healthy choices. I had roast beef dinner which unfortunately came swimming in thick packaged gravy. Once I scrapped that off the meat and potatoes weren't too bad. It came with over cooked frozen veggies. Breakfast was a bit better. I had veggie omelet which was tasty but the hash browns tasted like old cooking oil. The biscuits were very good, freshly baked. Service is very good and friendly.
