We found this place when searching specifically for tamales in Sedona. They were perhaps the best I’ve ever had. We liked them so much we went back the next day (although I ordered the burrito on day 2). Great veg options, but worth a try...for anyone.More

This is the best Mexican food I’ve tried. We ordered the pork tamale supreme and enjoyed it so much we ordered another. The guacamole was also great and very fresh. This is the first stop on our Sedona trip where I have eaten something I...cannot get anywhere else.More

Let me start by saying I do not like tamales, that being said, I would come here every day for Tamaliza's tamales. If you can make me like something I don't like, well, that really says something! Best lunch in Sedona would highly recommend. Local...favorite.More

We were on vacation and wanted an easy delicious meal. I read the reviews and we were not disappointed. We got a few naked tamales and the loaded chicken tamale. Everything was delicious and the staff were very friendly. They had indoor and outdoor seating...and were very busy. We took our order to go and will be eating here again when we visit.More

We went because of the reviews on TA and because of the vegetarian options. It was cute and our food came quickly. Just wasn't expecting the super casual set up where you order and pay and they bring the food to the table. The menu...options are limited, and the food was not as flavorful/spicy as we hoped. Salsa was quite mild/bland. Maybe it was what we ordered (chile relleno, vegetarian enchiladas). Seating was limited. So given that we've been trying all the Southwestern/Mexican places we can while we're here, in comparison to others, this was good but not great.More

I visited here during a trip to Sedona. I had the chicken burrito enchilada style with black beans and rice. My order was prepared quickly and the food was delicious. The food tested fresh. My only minor critique is the food could’ve been a little...warmer, but it was a busy Saturday. I highly recommend this place.More

The chicken mole tamale delivers an explosion of flavor in your mouth. The rich and deep corn flavor. The clove of the chicken mole. So, so good. Chips were tasty too.

A MUST! We had a great meal here. Love supporting a small family run business. The patio was a nice place to sit and eat. This place was recommended by friends and spot on. Best dinner we have had so far this week in Sedona

I had read several reviews and thought we should give this small hole in the wall an opportunity. So glad that we did! Between the two of us and our chosen items, we sampled their barbacoa, chicken, and pork. All were very good. Side note...on the side dishes. Normally I just sample the rice and beans and then move on. Not here. Their versions were tasty and I left nothing on my plate. A little pricey but worth it. We will be back.More

The food was great. We had the beef burritos. When I walked in there was a man who was extremely friendly and nice but wasn't wearing any PPE. No masks or gloves and handling the food. The food was tasty but if you are high...risk for covid I would stay away for a while or order to go!More

I believe there was a patio, but I am not sure if it is dog friendly.
