The Ultimate Sedona Food and Drink Bucket List!

Sedona, Arizona is a very popular tourist destination but it’s also a pretty popular place for locals especially when it comes to dining. My favorite part about Sedona dining is the variety of your options and literally every meal I’ve ever had there is just so good! Check out my favorite restaurants in Sedona below.

El Rincon Mexicano


My mom and I tried El Rincon Mexicano in Sedona! My mom had the chimichanga with machaca beef (enchiladastyle) with rice and beans and I had the chicken quesadilla and the world famous margarita It was SO GOOD. Definitely coming back and our waiter was so cute and gave us roses at the end. 

Jay Bird’s Nashville Hot Chicken

I tried the white meat with fries which included a breast and wing, spiced with your choice of heat (hot of course), served with sliced bread, dill pickles, spicy fries, and one sauce. The heat level was perfect as it was spicy but not too spicy where I couldn’t enjoy the chicken. I also tried the chicken sandwich and the coleslaw perfectly balanced the sandwich. Their homemade lemonades and sweet tea are the best way to wash down all of this deliciousness.

Mariposa Latin Restaurant

As if the beautiful red rocks weren’t enough to visit Sedona, their food scene is on point! My new favorite restaurant in Sedona is Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill. The restaurant boasts incredible views and the food is AMAZING. I had the Rustico, a ribeye sandwich on Ciabatta with chimichurri, onion strings and chipotle aioli. It was so tender and full of flavor!

Mole Fine Cuisine of Mexico

The mole con pollo asado enchiladas were my personal favorite. You can tell that the mole and the tortillas are homemade because the flavor just comes through. The skirt steak tanquieno is another favorite. It is seville orange marinated prime skirt steak with potato brava and green guacachile salsa. I’ve been to Spain and the potato brava at Mole definitely stand up to the authentic side dish!

I asked the server whether she recommended the rice or beans and she told me to get both and I’m so glad she did! Both were delicious and a great way to complete the meal. I highly recommend you don’t leave without trying their desserts! I tried the churros filled with goat’s milk caramelo and vanilla ice cream and both were so good. I left very stuffed but it was so worth it as everything on the menu was phenomenal.

Outlaw Grille

If you’re craving a delicious burger, check out Outlaw Grille! I love the fries too.

Pisa Lisa

I have eaten alot of pizza in my day and Da Dorothy pizza from Pisa Lisa is definitely in the top 3! Da Dorothy comes with Mother sauce, provolone-mozzarella, parm-reggiano, Calabrese sausage and picante peppers that give it such a hearty kick. I ate this entire pizza and felt ridiculously full after but I wouldn’t change a thing. It was AMAZING. They also have gelato that I want to try next time!

Stagecoach Country Roadhouse

I started with the smoked lemon pepper wings and smoked wings are the only wings I will ever eat now. The smoky flavor comes through and the wings were perfectly juicy!

The brisket was the special on Saturday night so of course I had to try it and it was delicious! The sides were just as good with some of the best macaroni and cheese I’ve ever had as well as some tasty parmesan truffle fries that were perfectly crispy. The prime rib with the crispy onion strips was also very good. I love that the crispy onion strips are half garnish/half side. Again, make sure you do not leave without trying their dessert. I had the chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and it was so delicious and made to order!
