Authentic Mexican food with great service. We normally always eat here at least twice on every trip to Sedona. The service is great and the prices are very reasonable.

Our waitress was terrific. The food was not. Ordered guacamole, salsa, chips, 3 shredded beef taco plate with refried beans and rice, added extra black beans. Guacamole was seasoned with dry seasonings and blended with mayo into a "baby food" consistancy. Avacados are so flavorful...More

I ate the steak quesadilla. YUM! Had some type of shrimp appetizer that was very different...an unexpected taste. The service was very nice and inviting.

I really didn't pay attention to that because we don't have any small children and we didn't have any with us. Perhaps you can check out their menu, if it's online, to see if they have a children's menu.

Despite the name, Cafe Jose serves good old-fashioned home style cooking. It is a classic American diner which also happens to serve good Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day. Cafe Jose is a favorite spot for local residents. It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.
