I didn't find out about this place until I went to my daughter's graduation from U of Az; i.e., after four years. True, there is an exceptionally long wait because they do not accept reservations so with that in mind just don't go there when...More

On the recommendation of our waiter at a Mexican restaurant in Sedona, we tried Mi Nidito. It's a VERY popular restaurant, so you can expect to wait as much as an hour or more for a table just about any time you go. That said,...More

It gets busy around 5 pm with a 20-30 minute wait but it's worth it. Most of the eaters are Spanish speaking. Interior has character. Our waiter was a bit brusque but with the restaurant full and many waiting I guess this is to be...More
