excellent starter chips and

excellent starter chips and salsa....fresh southwest -Tex Mex in a nice casual environment. Strawberry lemonade is pretty good too.




My husband and I eat here about once a week- it is so good! The food is unique and they have a wide variety with tasty chips and salsa to start. I always get the fish tacos and my hubby gets the chile rubbed sirloin- I highly recommend checking this place out :).

very interesting chips and salsa...

I went here alone, and they actually didn't assume it was a table for two, which I appreciate.
The chips were weird- they mix salty with sweet, so be prepared for a surprise. I had grilled shrimp with rice and vegetables. The shrimp and grilled onions were great, but the asparagus was awful. It was like they left it in the bottom of the oven until it was black- it tasted kind of like charcoal. The dish ended up being heavier than I expected, because of a rather buttery sauce, but it was good.
I asked for mineral water and got bottled water- I actually wanted sparkling water. That's purely a matter of a waiter that isn't familiar with mineral water. They gave me a white chocolate tamale for dessert, which tasted good but made kind of a mess as the milk (I think) that had been frozen melted.
The prices were a little high for this type of food, but I liked it.
Oh and it was pretty much empty on a Tuesday night.

Average food, mediocre service, above average prices

We dined at Canyon Cafe this evening and were somewhat disappointed. The restaurant was not crowded but the service was mediocre. We had to ask for refills on water and iced tea and the waiter was hard to find. The grilled shrimp tasted fine but there were only six small/medium shrimp on the plate, and lots of rice and corn on the cob ($15.95). The ahi tuna salad was also good but only had about two ounces of tuna, and lots of salad ($11.95). The chicken fried steak was below average. It looked huge, but when you removed the breading there very little stead. And, of course, it came with lots of mashed potatoes ($14.95). Do you see a pattern here? Yes, the servings are large but mostly 'filler'. I spoke to the manager and he said he'd have to talk to the cook. I wonder why they call him the manager?

Good interesting food

We started going to Canyon Cafe about 6 months ago but stopped because the service was so terrible it overshadowed the great food. We gave it another try a month ago and it seems the service problem has been fixed. We've been a couple times since and each time the service was great. The mango chicken is a fav as are the burgers/sandwiches.

Great Chicken Fried Steak

They have the best chicken fried steak I have ever had. The service was good, very prompt and the chips at the begining of the meal were a little different, but pretty good, the seasoning used was tasty and the textures was a nice change.. I would highly recommend this place.

For something different

The food was awesome - unique, even for the southwest! Everyone at the table had a plate of something totally different and we all walked out raving about our food. The jalapeno cream gravy was delicious and the banana burrito for dessert was amazing. Our table could have been cleaned off better but the booth was comfortable. The service was great and they even gave presents to the mothers at the table for Mother's Day. I am definitely recommending this place to all I know and can't wait to go again.

Best Burger Bar None

Absolutely one of the best places in town. I would pay for a plane ticket from the east coast for one of their hamburgers!
