I guess that is to be expected from a small(ish) resort town like Sedona, but it was tasty and the service was pretty good. Our waiter had a pleasant attitude and wicked sense of humor. Somethings were quite spicy and they had a nice choice...More

Great place to eat if you want authentic Mexican food with reasonable prices. We had a great dinner and service.

This was the best Mexican food we have ever eaten. The portion size was way more than we expected and to much for one person.

Food was ok, ate there twice to give em a chance as we heard it was good. Unfortunately the food was rather bland and standard fare. Margarita was good tho.

Basic mexican restaurant. Not terrible, but nothing to write home about. The menu is over priced, but the margaritas are strong and the staff is very friendly.

We learned quickly in Sedona that reservations are always needed. The cantina was within walking distance of our condo and we made reservations the night before. The view was the best thing here. The food was average and the staff slightly unenthusiastic to be working.

I've eaten at Javelina Cantina 2 times. Both excellent. I have allergies and our server made sure that my food was allergen-free for me. Before I even had really looked at my plate, he looked down and immediately noticed my taco had a flour tortilla...More

This place offers a nice variety of great Mexican food. We’ve been here numerous times and it consistently provides very delicious food. Their margaritas are outstanding. Suggest making a reservation since it does get crowded.

I didn't order it but saw it served, looked like everything but the kitchen sink. I believe you can pick your protein either beef or chicken. It was piled high.
