We love sustainable and clean food. But it should be affordable and tasty. We had the duck tamale and the chicken tamale. The side salad was superb. Loved the dressing. The tamale was so dry. I would say barely edible. It occurred to me that...More

We spotted this place downtown and my wife had read good things on TripAdvisor, so we gave it a shot. The interior is attractive. They don't have any beers on tap, which was mildly disappointing. I had the paella. It was pretty good, but far...More

We walked in and the place was packed. Got table fast anyway. Service was fast and friendly. Good was absolutely awesome. And we got extra set of chips. Goes well for vegetarians and vegans also!

This is one of our favorite places in Flagstaff downtown for a quick dinner. I have always loved the Salmon Tostada and my husband loves the Veggie Chili Relleno. Food is always consistent. It can be a bit noisy.

While we all had wine with our dinner, this is considered a farm-to-table location so my guess is they would offer locally brewed beers as well as a few others better known beers.
