Sedona Restaurants Help
Need help on restuarants in Sedona. Will be there for a few days in May. Looking for something good in the mid range. (Going with a friend who is not into formal.) Guidebook suggested Javelina Cantina and Joey's Bistro and a few other places. Want something that is casual, but good. Any help appreciated.
Mid-range is tough in Sedona. Seems most places are spendy or fast food -- not much in between.
Personally, I am not a fan of the Javelina. Their margaritas are very good, but the food is... how to describe it? Misdirected? I found most things either bland, or chocked full of cilantro (which I can't stand).
I've been to Joey Bistro once, for the pasta dinner (Tuesdays, I think). Therefore, I am not sure that would be a good measure of their regular menu. Blah pastas, blah sauces.
I agree with the suggestion for Oak Creek Brewery. I think I had a seared tuna salad there, and it wasn't bad. Their wings are rather tasty. As a sidenote, if you want a cool, relaxed local scene with good music, hit up the actual brewery location. But don't expect any food there, as the bavarian kitchen closed about a year ago.
Red Planet is good for burgers and shakes. Sedona Memories makes great sandwiches, but I'm not sure they are open on the weekends. REDS is so-so.
That's all I can think of at the moment. If any more occur to me, I'll post up again.
