Other than the chips out of a bag and a taco shell out of a box I really enjoyed my food. A heap of tasty shredded beef in the taco and the enchilada from heaven, shrimp and green chili is to die for. Very tasty salsa. Wait staff friendly and pleasant. Nice and laid back. Would return for more.

Our large party of 12 received good service, and the food was excellent. We had called ahead for reservations, specifically asking for separate checks, which they said would not be a problem. Once seated, we got a little pushback, but finally they agreed. The hostess could have been a little more welcoming, but he food and drinks more than made up for the lack of welcome.

After doing a short hike in the morning, we ended up in the area and chose to eat Mexican.
We sat out on the patio. Our server was Rachel. We both ordered different burritos and a carafe of sangria. The food was very good. The service was great. The experience was nice.
I will say the carpet inside and the bathrooms could use an upgrade.

I go to Sedona a lot and I absolutely love it. Everything is so fresh and very healthy! The staff is really nice. I remember going with friends with dogs and they were super accommodating.
