We cannot drive any where near Flagstaff without stopping to enjoy the creative food at Criollo! Seasonal offerings, unique flavors make choosing difficult. I would love to live here and sample each day! Any way I recommend Criollo for a taste treat.

Good food, good service. Interesting range of choices. If not for a reservation cancelled we would not have gotten in.

I've stopped here twice for lunch and enjoyed the Catfish Tacos and Pork Belly Tacos. Both were bursting with flavor and a satisfying portion. I enjoyed the rooftop dining. Would definitely eat here again.
