I cannot review this highly enough... it's well worth the wait, especially with margaritas of the highest quality in hand. Plus, the "waiting" popcorn is outstanding. The elote itself was an unforgettable dish and the service was attentive and gracious. DEFINITELY not to be missed.

No trip to Sedona would be complete without a dinner at the Elote Cafe. They are extremely popular due to great food and Service - but they do not take reservations. After a 45 minute wait for a table, we began our meal with Complimentary...More

Have been there several times and always get incredible food and service! If you want to get the first seating when the restaurant opens at 5, get there at least 30 minutes before.

It has become a tradition to have dinner at this restaurant every time we go to Sedona, they keep the menu small but with good selection so you won't be disappointed with any plate that you order. I ordered the enchiladas and they were amazing.

Every town deserves to have a place which is so good that people line up nearly an hour before opening just to make sure they get in. We had two days in Sedona and were told about Elote Cafe....as in "don't miss it," and "try...More

Elote is very popular and deserves to be. The food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. We waited about an hour on a Friday evening, arriving about 5:30, and being seated at the bar--an entertaining venue given the activity of the bartender/waiter. I highly...More

You can check in and wait while they go off and do something. One person has to stay. It might be more than 30 minutes, though...
