I almost forgot about the huevos rancheros, chips and salsa, good service, etc...I could go back just for the sopapillas only! The huevos were perfect, rice and beans also yum. When the honey and basket of sopapillas arrived at the table, I thought oh that's too much. We all had good size plates of food, once we started in it... More

Had dinner here. Prices were reasonable, food taste was reasonable, food presentation was quite nice, portions were more than 1 person should eat, service was excellent. Definitely a local favourite.

Good local place to eat and have a drink. The red combination plate is a nice option. Worth the stop to get when passing by.

My dad and I were road tripping around Arizona, and we pulled into Winslow for a much needed break. We saw the Mug Cafe, decided to check it out. I'm glad we did! Very affordable food, nice attentive wait staff and yummy meals. My dad had a burger with fries, I had the green sauce enchilada and honestly, everything was... More

Reviews during 2016 camping trip The Brown Mug, an unlikely name for a (mostly) Mexican cafe, is one of those thoroughly unpretentious eateries, frequented nearly exclusively by locals, that serves up fairly priced and consistently pretty darn good Mexican food along with generous pours of boxed wine for $4 per glass. The Navajo Taco, particularly with the added (ground) chicken... More

I was staying at La Posada Hotel -- a great place! -- and had a margarita at the bar. With tip that was something like $13. I decided to economize and went across the street to this establishment. For about one dollar more than that, plus tip, I had chips and salsa, an excellent hot bowl of green chile, and... More

This is obviously a local joint and that is the kind of the place we like to find. It is an obvious dive which is appealing to us. The service wasn't super fast, but the food was worth waiting for. So glad we made the stop in Winslow and found this gem.

This place is a landmark in Winslow. My parents first met here for a cuppa Joe way back in the 50s. They still have reliable refills and reasonably-priced coffee w/ the usual cafe fare and a good breakfast, always hot and prompt.

I was nervous because of the exterior of this cafe but we followed an older couple in so I got courage from them! ;) The wait staff was VERY professional, quick, courteous, and knowledgable. One gentleman waited on all the tables and was quicker and better than most wait staff in a big city! Some of the best service I... More

Really great food in an unassuming small cafe. Great Mexican cuisine and added bonus of Navajo fried bread included.
