We stopped here on our way to & from New Mexico. Our first stop was in the morning. I had a value hard shell taco along with a chicken quesadilla snacker. The taco includes ground beef, lettuce & shredded cheddar cheese & the quesadilla has grilled chicken with cheddar cheese. Both are decent considering they are under a buck. The facility was clean both inside & out & customer service was friendly. The stop on our way back was around 8pm. I had carne asada fries which include Crinkle-cut fries topped with grilled carne asada, cheddar cheese, "secret sauce", guacamole and diced tomatoes. The topping to fry ratio was spot on! I didn't have naked fries lol My mother in law had a chicken bacon avocado salad With cilantro ranch dressing. It was tasty & fresh with a savory twist. The facility was clean with the exception of the baby changing station in the women's restroom & costumer service was ok. They have a play place for kids so that's a plus if you're taking kids. Overall both were pleasant visits. The only thing I would tell you to consider is that the bathrooms are not stalls so you'll have to wait if someone is using it & parking is full if the hotel next to it is busy. Nevertheless, I would return if I'm passing or find myself in flagstaff again.


We went with a chicken bacon avocado salad, a bean burrito combo with fries, and a shrimp taco with honey mango. The salad came with Freshly grilled chicken, sliced avocado, crispy bacon pieces, pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, and crunchy tortilla chips are layered over our fresh romaine and iceberg lettuce blend. Served with a side of ranch or avocado caesar dressing.
