Located off a frontage road ,parking was easy. Finding this restaurant turned out to be a challenge as it is tucked inside a maze of shops/boutiques. When we rented our car in Phoenix, the agent said you have to try this restaurant. Not so much,...More

We had already stopped elsewhere for lunch. But, we pulled over to have a couple Margaritas. Delicious. The bartender was super friendly and engaging.

We chose Javelinas’s for our last night's meal in Sedona based on online reviews and the posted menu, which is very similar to the menu you’ll get when seated. As a plus Javelina is located away from the main tourist scene of Upper Sedona yet...More

We ate dinner here after spending the day touring the red rock sights. The food was outstanding. They offer interesting and delicious variations of traditional Mexican food like tacos and enchiladas. The wait staff was sharp, too.

A very busy place, but our waiter was very attentive & personable. The food was brought in a very timely manner. Large portions that we managed to consume because it all was very authentic.The margarita s are a bit pricey.

I didn't order it but saw it served, looked like everything but the kitchen sink. I believe you can pick your protein either beef or chicken. It was piled high.

Oops, sorry this was posted so long ago. Happy Hour in bar ONLY but children are allowed in bar area at the tables, just not up at the actual bar itself.
