    The Pork Cheeks and Corn Tamales are both to die for. One of the finest southwest restaurants, period.

    Spectacular food! Limited hours (dinner only 5-9pm) but amazing & worth any wait. Enjoyed house made margaritas, the Elote corn & avocado aps, smoked chicken enchiladas & pork cheeks. Oh the dessert!

    The smoked pork cheeks are ridiculously good. So are the desserts! It will be at least an hour wait, but so worth it and complemented by ginger margaritas and spicy popcorn.

    The elote and the pastel de elote were amazing. Also try the guava jalapeño mezcal margarita while you wait

    The best restaurant in Sedona, but still mediocre food. Good cocktails though.

    Well worth it. Delicious food. We had the Elote, guacamole, pork tamal, and smoked chicken enchiladas. All were amazing. The margaritas are also very good and they have a nice selection of tequilas.

    The food is great but the hour to two hour wait is rough. Why don't they use both patios to expedite service

    A Fodors choice and completely deserving. Try the elote (a creamy corn salsa)...a hit with everyone at the table. And the scallops were corn crusted and flash fried to perfection.

    The salsa was incredible. The lamb was enough to split with someone, and had a tasty sauce.

    The wait was an hour but there's a bar you can order drinks from an a patio seating area. The smoked pork cheeks were amazing and so tender. The elote was good, but not as amazing as described by all.

    Oh my, such an amazing meal. The namesake street corn is a great start. Smoked pork cheeks are a fine entree. Oh, the kids menu is as good as the regular menu. Plus the margaritas, and the cookbook.

    Worth every second of the wait. The elote is amazing to start but you MUST try the ahi tacos. Order 2x if you have more than 2 people. And the lamb is an absolute must have. 5 stars!
  • Ken M.
    Must try the green corn tamale, carne asada, and crepas for desert.

    As everyone here says "the elote" is a must and I agree. Limited vegetarian options.

    Order the Elote (Mexican street corn)! It's absolutely delicious. Don't let the old hotel exterior fool you..the inside is awesome!

    Split an appetizer with your date, I recommend the Carne Asada and Carnitas, then split the Crepas de Cajeta.

    A cup of decaf Firecreek house-roasted coffee and the Canela ice cream is the perfect finish to any of the excellent entrees...

    Enchiladas were great. I would never wait 1.5 hours for that again though. Go right when it opens!
  • Ken M.
    When there is a long wait go next door to Mooney's Irish pub and come back to Elote

    Best authentic Mexican food ever. The wait is WELL worth it. The FEW people that said it is not are absolutely clueless.
  • Ken M.
    The ginger margaritas are the best
