or do take-out like we did. Luckily we were staying at the Arabella next door and were warned that the Elote Cafe is closed Sunday and Mondays. We got there at 8:30 on a Saturday night and they were packed. We couldn't get seats for at least 45 minutes, so we sidled over to the margarita bar (Jeff's margarita was... More

Food was excellent and the service even better! Make sure you order the elote! We ordered all their house specials right down to dessert! Only regret was that we forgot to get their cookbook on the way out.

Was told about this place by a friend of mine, so my wife and I went on our first night there. It's a small restaurant, and being cold the night we were there, the deck was closed. Not a problem, they have a nice covered outdoor seating area, with heaters and blankets (oh so nice) to wait and enjoy some... More

No reservations taken and you'll have to wait in line, but you won't regret it! The fare is Mexican/Latino and as spicy as you want it to be. Get a Margarita and enjoy!

We came by here after a day of winetasting nearby and we were ready for a good meal. We ended up by chance as part of the 4:30 pm lineup to get into the restaurant, which line goes all the way down the ramp on the second floor and out to the parking lot. Do not be discouraged by the... More

We came here to celebrate my birthday on a Saturday and arrived a few minutes after 5pm and there was already a line waiting out the door. Totally worth the wait (which ended up being an hour). The mojitos were so good and the elote appetizer was to die for. I'm very famililar with elote where I'm from and this... More

Elote was by far our favorite restaurant during our stay in Sedona. We ate there two nights in a row, it was that good. The 4:30PM lineup to get your name on the dinner list is well worth the effort. I recommend trying to sit outside around sunset - the views of Cathedral Rock and other red rock formations in... More

No they don't take reservations. Yes, there will be a wait. YES IT IS WORTH IT! My wife was here 2 yrs. ago and this restaurant made quite an impression. The namesake was the first of many dishes we had and it was amazing! Creamy, warm, and smokey heat from the chili powder. Everything is made fresh and it tastes... More
