We enjoyed the fajitas for two, a nice menu option. The generous portion of chicken fajita included excellent sides. The staff was very professional, just the right balance of attention and peace to enjoy our meal.

Javeline is a must if you are in Sedona and love Mexican food. Excellent food, great service. We have been coming here for 20 years and still love bringing friends here that are in town. Highly recommend the prickly pear marguarita, the chicken mole enchilladas!
