There was a wait for lunch, so my husband and I decided to sit at the bar. I’ve gotta say, we had a great lunch visit! The bartender, Crystal, made the difference! She was so kind, knowledgeable, and provided great service. Crystal’s advice on what...to order was spot on! The fajitas and their specialty enchiladas were incredible! The margaritas were probably the best I’ve had. Thank you Crystal and Javelina’s for such a nice dining experience in a hot vacation day in June!More

Really enjoyed the food but felt like it was overpriced. The service was slow. Had to flag down our server to get refills on chips and water.

This was our third trip as a family out to Arizona. Stayed in Scottsdale, but drove up to Sedona for the day. Succeeded in finding Javelina Cantina, as we had always remembered a great lunch from 3 years ago. It was still terrific! We had...enchiladas and tacos. All were great, but perhaps our favorite was is still their chips and salsa with some really fresh guacamole. Server was lovely.Great views, as well :)More

The Ultimate margarita is extremely tasty. We went twice and both times our food was very good. Service was swift and friendly. On our second visit, the local javelina squad came down to munch on tortilla chips supplied by the staff. (Javelina look like small...boars but they are not.)More

We had fantastic service, great food, and awesome drinks (mango and strawberry margs on the rocks)!! Can’t beat it with the cool view too!!! We went early around 4p and were seated right away. Pictured: Fish Tacos And Carnitas

Amazing food & service!! Portions are huge, menu is full of so many great choices and food is delicious! Get there early because it’s busy no matter what time we stopped in. If you can get a seat on patio…TAKE IT!!! The views are beautiful...❤️More

Delicious Mexican food. We went at sunset and it was lovely sitting on the patio. We had the queso to start and then chicken and steak fajitas for dinner. The prickly pear margaritas are also a must!

We had terrible service. Our waitress was surly and MIA the entire time, even when the restaurant became empty. Dirty plates piled up on the table. The food was mediocre Mexican that you can get anywhere in the northeast. The premium margarita was a miss...and they charged $2 extra to make it skinny without telling us ahead of time.More

Went there with my wife and 2 children. The drinks were delicious and the place was hopping. We were excited to have a night out and it did not disappoint. Had the enchilada/taco combo and was quite happy. Would return

Ate here during my last trip to Sedona 20 years ago and my family and I thought it was outstanding. Fond memories brought us back again and we weren’t disappointed. The interior looked clean and new. Best of all, the food and service was still...outstanding. The steaming hot fajitas were the best I’ve had in years, and their Ultimate Margarita was delicious. Look forward to eating here again during my next visit to this area.More

I didn't order it but saw it served, looked like everything but the kitchen sink. I believe you can pick your protein either beef or chicken. It was piled high.
