Visiting Sedona and Flagstaff, Help!
I want to know the the best places to eat in Sedona and Flagsatff Arizona? Any type of food, as long as it is special. Are there any Mexican spots that fit my needs?
I've only been to the Beaver Street Brewery and, as the last restaurant stop on our cross-country drive from Boston to Phoenix, this lively casual spot with friendly service fit the bill.
For the Sedona area:
Elote Cafe (Mexican) is one of our favorites in Sedona - we eat there every time we visit.
Haven't been to Dahl & Diluca yet, but for Italian we like their other restaurant, Cucina Rustica, in the Village of Oak Creek. We also had a nice lunch at L'Auberge on a beautiful spring day, seated on their pretty patio by Oak Creek.
L'Auberge (with pics from our last visit):
771 State Route 179, Sedona, AZ 86336
Rubee is spot on with Elote Cafe and L'Auberge!
Love Elote Cafe..
I would add lunch at the Enchantment Resort..Yavapai has stunning red rock views and the food is quite good.
We really enjoy Dahl & Di Luca and enjoy eating at the bar.
We were just in Sedona a couple of weeks ago and the economy was taking a hit.
Everyone raves about the Garland Lodge..which is scheduled for the next visit.
maybe not "special," but definately inexpensive and good, salsa brava on santa fe ave in flagstaff, was just there a few days ago-- very local place with lots of good mexican options, has a salsa bar with maybe 6 or 8 salsas with different levels of spice.
For Flagstaff, New Jersey Pizza Co. is awesome. Hiro Sushi for Japanese/sushi, and Brandy's for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Cafe Elote, as mentioned, serves outstanding Mexican food. When Elote is closed or jammed, the only other decent Mexican food is at Los Betos, an inexpensive drive through in Sedona (Village of Oak Creek) with indoor and outdoor (parking lot) seating, next to the Giant gas station on Hwy 179. Also, diagonally across the highway at 6586 Hwy 179 is Minami, a tiny but wonderful Japanese restaurant.
