Stopped here for lunch. Great food and service. We both had the chicken tortilla soup which was excellent and because it was Mardi Gras, the fried chicken po-boy which was outstanding. Definitely order the sweet potato fries which were some of the best we've had!

We like Criollo any time because the food tastes great and feels healthy. The tacos are a good choice but all the brunch items we've tried were great. The blue corn pancakes with eggs poached are my favorite. Lots of locals here but friendly to travelers. The patio seating can be magical as we've had a couple amazing meals out... More

We stopped in while we fooling around in Flag. and can say that I would go back, we split the cubano and sweet potato fries. The Cubano was very tasty and the sweet potato fries were crisp unlike some that you get that are soggy.

My husband and I have eaten here a dozen times or so over the last few years and the lunch we had today may be our last one at Criollo. The calamari were excessively greasy and the cilantro sauce did not seem to be freshly made with globs of cilantro stems very present and old tasting. There was no sign... More

Was looking for lunch and went on a recommendation from a local and was very pleased. Since I often dine alone I appreciate being able to sit at the bar and enjoy a meal. Had the pork belly tacos and they were as great. Would like to return and try a margarita.

Had dinner with my two daughters this past Saturday!!! The restaurant décor was pretty cool with exposed Brick and the staff was nice, but little slow, even though there were open tables. I had the Bison Meatloaf, which was really good and my oldest daughter had the Catfish tacos, which she liked very much. Unfortunately my youngest daughter’s original order... More

Liked this so much went twice in a week! Happy hour is the bomb! Great small tacos, discounted wine/beer, etc. Enjoyed dinner as well, good menu. As one local put it "I could eat here every night".

My husband and I had a delicious meal here on Christmas Eve Eve. The downtown area of Flagstaff was fairly quiet so we were happy to have such a cool option to try on our only night in town. Our server was a really nice guy, too. Neither of us had alcohol but the drinks looked amazing. I had pork... More

I was passing through Flagstaff on my way to Phoenix and really wanted to find a non-chain place to eat. I happened upon Criollo Latin Kitchen and was very impressed. It had a comfortable vibe, especially for a solo diner, and a great menu. I sat at the bar and the bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly. They had a... More
