SEDONA for lunch- need suggestions for day trip
May drive guests to see the view. Any special places with a view (or without) that local Chowhounds recommend? We are open to all kinds of food; including ethnic. Thanks, in advance for your suggestions.
I was in Sedona a year ago, but didn't get a chance to sneak out much on my own for food...business trip with food included, and company oriented dinners...but here's a list:
Javelina Cafe got great reviews...Cafe Blue Moon was just what they said it was...I'd have loved to go up to the Airport Cafe...you go right along side one of the "big" vortices that way too. I didn't have any SW food there that I'd recommend...but I didn't get much time to do research! Have fun! It's gorgeous!
There's a fine view from the terrace at Elote, but call to see if they're open for lunch (they weren't, but that might not be current). Shugrues Hillside has a nice view, as does the Airport Restaurant. Probably the most dramatic (and pricey) is Enchantment Resort - you'll need a restaurant reservation to get on to the property for good food in a spectacular setting.
Best Views- Enchantment, Shugrue's, L'auberge; Best standard mexican (Chile Relleno, Quesadillo, etc)- Keisers (also have great ribs, pulled pork, smoked brisket and home made ice cream; or try the tourist version of this restaurant: Judi's); Best seafood- Shugrue's Hillside; Best nouveau Mexican- Elote; Best Pizza and Italian (and tied with Sundowner for hardest to find- A Pizza Heaven); Best Burger- Sundowner. Beware, though it's very cold here (40's)
