We really enjoyed the margaritas and nacho appetizer, but the main course was pretty bland. The service, however, was fantastic.

The food was awesome. We all got something different and were all very pleased! My Rojas Viejo were extremely tasty. The bison meatloaf also got good reviews by a friend. The appetizer was forgotten by the kitchen staff but then comp'ed by the manager so we were able to try the seasonal tamale which was delicious!

This is a restaurant in downtown Flagstaff, so parking can be a problem. That is about the only detraction however. The menu is based on Cuban food and so the offerings are a bit unusual. However the food is quite tasty and not at all off in taste. The atmosphere and the decor are both casual. The prices are moderate... More

There is no better happy hour in Flagstaff, I love the fish tacos and jalapeno margaritas. The locals are all well aware of the happy hour menu and it is often busy 3-6.

The braised beef in the ropa vieja was excellent. The paella was also very good except that the rice was undercooked. For dessert they attempt to replicate a Madrid favorite, churro and chocolate. Although quite the tasty treat the churro disintegrates making it difficult to enjoy without the aid of a fork. I really hope it was just an off... More

Didn't exactly know what the "Latin" foods consisted of. Turned out to be a great lunch. Nice variety of foods. We had a fantastic waiter too.

Criollo's Latin Kitchen starts with a simple, unassuming sidewalk presentation but changes into a warm, comfortable atmosphere that includes a nifty bar with a "locals-type" look. The menu offers a fairly wide variety of dishes to chose from and a majority of their food comes from local farms and fields. My wife had (for the second time) the Mojo Marinated... More

I had stopped at this restaurant previously on my way to the airport and I though my sandwich was excellent. This time we came with family and friends for lunch. We ordered a few differnt dirinks: pisco sour, caipirinha and beer with avocado chips and salsa and appetizers. They all were just great. We also ordered a few tacos, soup,... More

My husband and I stopped here during our Flagstaff part of our Arizona adventure. Killer Bloodies and deliciously unique soups. Friendly and funky. Great spot!
