While it may seem that Mexican food should fall under the international cuisine topic, when you live in the Southwest you realize that in reality, Mexican food is just another type of American food. While it may seem that Mexican food should fall under the international cuisine topic, when you live in the Southwest you realize that in reality, Mexican food is just another type of American food. This comfort food (for Arizonans) is spicy and rich and filled with fresh ingredients that make you feel like everything is going to be alright. The Mexican restaurants in Sedona take perfection to new levels, however, creating dishes that are flavorful without being too spicy. Keep reading for a list of local Mexican Restaurants in Sedona that are soon going to be your new favorites.
Tii Gavo Southwestern Restaurant
Leaning towards a more southwestern style rather than a true Mexican one, Tii Gavo’s specialty is creating dishes from local ingredients. Fresh and tasty, you won’t get a truer example of local cuisine anywhere else in the Verde Valley. Their Prickly Pear Margarita is a great accompaniment to their Latin style shrimp and grits; chorizo and a chipotle cream sauce add a twist to this traditional Southern dish. Located at 525 Boynton Canyon Road in Sedona.
Tortas De Fuego
Sometimes the best foods can be found in the most inauspicious locations, and Tortas de Fuego is one such restaurant. Located in a nondescript standalone building that might once have been a fast food restaurant of some sort, the food found here is more traditional than that of Tii Gavo. Mexican sandwiches, enchiladas, burros, and other Mexican standards are served here, all at reasonable prices and all covered with cheese and sauce that would be cause for concern if you weren’t on vacation! Located at 1630 Arizona 89A in Sedona.
The views of Sedona’s famous red rock will take your breath away when you dine at the Javelina Cantina, while the flavorful food served here will put you in a state of nirvana. Offering traditional favorites like tacos and chimichangas and adding unique twists to other dishes (the Rotisserie chicken and goat cheese enchiladas are simply divine), this elegant cocina does not disappoint. Located at 671 Highway 179 #BD in Sedona.
El Rincon Mexican Restaurant
This Tlaquepaque restaurant has resided inside the walls of the arts and craft village for over 37 years, so they must be doing something right. Serving Mexican food with an Arizona twist, the chimichangas are their specialty. Homemade sweet and sour adds that little something extra to their margaritas, and the old world setting with mature sycamore trees shading courtyards adds to the overall ambiance and beauty of El Rincon.
