Went to this restaurant the other day after reading some reviews and also the menu looked decent. Food; Was decent but certainly not for the price. I had the pork fajitas and the sauce over powered the pork and whole dish. My partners dish was similar, fair but not the best we have had for the money you pay. Drinks;... More

I really enjoyed my experience here. The staff was very nice. She was late getting to our table (we didn't mind!) and apologized profusely. We had the smashed avocado, and I had the Relleno Vegetales. The butternut squash and polenta cake was so tasty! I will definitely be visiting here on my next trip to Flagstaff!

Wonderful food, great service, good vibe - what's not to like? Well, the noise from other diners' conversations echoes and reverberates making conversation at my table - there were 6 of us - impossible unless we shouted, and that contributed to even more noise.

I ordered a Tamal Criollo which came with a salad and a tamal. The salad was excellent, one of the best I ever had. It came with different types of leaves and seeds.The dressing was unique, tasted a bit like Ranch but also tasted a bit of sour cream. On the other hand, the tamal wasn't good. It didn't taste...

Criollo was good, but not great. The food was fairly bland - especially so for a Latin kitchen. It was a pleasant enough experience but not memorable or very interesting. The avocado appetizer is just guacamole with less flavor and the calamari was good but the fried coating all fell off & the dipping sauce was not seasoned and very... More

Original, fresh and super tasty - this is how our dinner can be described in 3 words. Bison meatloaf was amazing, combined with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. Service was fantastic, too, helpful and quick. I highly recommend while visiting Flagstaff.

Stopped here on a recent visit to Flagstaff. Wanted a lighter dinner, so we opted to share the Calamari appetizer and we both had the grilled wedge salad. Since we were there during Happy Hour, we each had a glass of the house red wine, which was a good Merlot. The place is small, but a nice atmosphere. Tables are... More

My girlfriends & I were in Flag for quick stop before heading to the Grand Canyon the following morning. It was a Sunday evening, late and we were just looking for some drinks and light meal. Our server Vanessa was awesome - even though we strolled in 15 minutes before closing; she greeted us warmly and took good care of... More

We had a delicious brunch/breakfast of latin inspired dishes. I had eggs scrambled with green chile and served with black beans, while my companions had blue corn pancakes. They serve real maple syrup. Yum.
