Beautiful views, great service, reasonable prices and delicious food -- you can't go wrong here. We had the nacho platter (which could have fed three or four people and there were just two of us) and the homemade guacamole, which was also in a huge bowl and delicious. Parking is a problem here but you can park anywhere in the... More

This place was our choice for dinner one night of our visit to Sedona and all participants agreed it was a good choice and we plan to return on our next visit. The food was very good and the prices typical of Sedona. Our waiter was great and made our dining experience more fun. Be sure to arrive early as... More

This restaurant is nothing special. it is a family Mexican restaurant. The food was pretty bad, atmosphere nothing special. Long wait and overpriced. Food so bad that I only ate a 1/3 of my food and declined to take the rest home.

Our Pink Jeep Tour guide recommended Javelina. After waiting for 45 min to be seated around 8pm, we unfortunately were told by the waiter and manager that they could not accommodate any allergies for my daughter (and seemed very put off/inconvenienced by the request) because they did not know any of the ingredients in their food other than the salsa,...

Since we cannot get outstanding Mexican food where we live, my husband paid attention to one of the local bartenders at another restaurant as to "best" Mexican. This IS the place. I ordered a beef burrito with half rice and half beans. The servings were generous and the meal was outstanding! My husband ordered 2 beef tacos and 1 beef... More

Really enjoyed our experience at the Javelina Cantina. We prefer small plates and small portions of food and can't always find it but here, in addition to the traditional Mexican large plates, there were really nice ala carte items that were just right in size and very delicious. Chips and salsa were served right away. The patio dining has nice... More

This was the place to go after a long hike. The portions are huge, and the chips and salsa were amazing. I would recommend the enchiladas. The staff is friendly and we were seated right away. Overall, a great experience.
