Average mexican meal. Some views if you are outside. long wait to get inside. Standard selection of burritos, tacos, enchiladas. Good but not great. Seems to be a big focus on monster margaritas. Parking in the shopping center area. Service was slow but the wait staff was limited. Waiters were in constant motion but just now enough of them. Moderate... More

Let's preface this review by saying that yes the young hostess to this place is rude (as mentioned by other comments on here), fortunately for us we didn't deal with her the day we came in. The food here is good and consistent, and the value is fair for Sedona. We walked in during lunch time, and it only took... More

Husband's choice for his birthday, and they celebrated him well with a song, fried ice cream in a tortilla and a goofy hat. Chicken and goat cheese enchilada excellent as were beef tamales. Fajitas a little too covered in sauce for me. Attentive waiter.

After hiking Devils Bridge, this restaurant was our oasis. Excellent drinks and awesome salsa and chips!

We ate here on our trip to AZ in March 2017. Loved the atmosphere and the food. I don't know what our waiters name was but he was awesome, a lot of fun and always made sure we had what we needed. THANK YOU!

We ate at Javelina Cantina for lunch while in Sedona. The food was very flavorful and good sized portions. We sat inside but they had a nice deck off the back with patio-type seating and nice views.

Our first night in Sedona and we all water Mexican. Had heard wonderful reviews so we went. Walked in at 4:45pm. Several empty tables, but busy. I would assume the rude woman at the front was either the owner or manager. We asked for a table with a view. She raised her voice and said "Does it look like I... More

This place had very good reviews on trip advisor . I was visiting area from New York . Extremely disappointed in the attitude of hostess. Unfriendly and unaccomodating. We asked if we could move to a vacant outside table but she told us it was reserved . Meanwhile, 30 minutes later, the table was given to 2 " walkins "... More

We were tired after a day of traveling and were staying at the Arabella hotel which is right down the street from the Javelina. The staff at the Arabella highly recommended the Javelina for Mexican food so we decided to try it. We had a very relaxing dinner with fish tacos and margaritas - both were very good and recommended.... More
