We chose this restaurant because it was featured on Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" on the Food Network. We had to wait awhile for a table for six, but once seated, the service was good and the food did not disappoint. My husband ordered the Sopapillas that were featured on the show - and he thoroughly enjoyed them. Great... More

We went to Salsa Brava because it was a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives restaurant and were not disappointed. The service was good, the place was clean, and the food was delicious. We ordered what Guy had ordered and couldn't get over the size of the portions. We were on a road trip with our kids and instead of lunch the... More

We stopped at Salsa Brava East during an overnight in the Flagstaff area. My husband picked this place because he really wanted a fry bread taco. There was quite a wait when we arrived but upon first glance you can tell that this is a place the locals go. It seemed everyone knew each other. The restaurant is small so... More

We set Salsa Brava on our Grand Canyon destination because of a Food Network episode about where to eat on Route 66. The skinny margarita was one of the best I have ever drunk. Super friendly staff and a salsa bar where you could choose your salsa made this a memorable restaurant. I chose the Navajo Taco (as seen on... More

We stopped here on a last minute decision for lunch after hiking. So glad we did! Their salsa bar is amazing!! All different types of salsas and you can make as many trips as you like, however, after the first basket of chips they start charging (not like most Mexican restaurants). Decided to order the Carne Asada Chimichanga and it... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Flagstaff. They have a wonderful salsa bar and plenty of free chips. All kinds of salsa from mild to hot pineapple habanero. Award winning chef has been featured on the food channel. I really don't think that you can go wrong here. Fish tacos to chimichanga to taco salads and fajitas....relatively inexpensive.
