Flagstaff is a beautiful city in the U.S. state of Arizona that is surrounded by mountains, desert, and ponderosa pine forests. This gorgeous city is a gateway to the San Francisco Peaks, a volcanic mountain range that has the highest point in the state of Arizona, Humphreys Peak that stands at 12,633 feet (3,851 m) in elevation. If you decide to visit the mountain range for hiking, here is a list of some of the top restaurants in Flagstaff city to satisfy your hunger.
1. Delhi Palace Cuisine of India
If you love curry and spicy food then this place is one of the best in Arizona for Indian cuisine. Located at 2700 S Woodlands Village Blvd Ste 8, the service at this restaurant is wonderful and the staff is courteous. They can also accommodate customization requests for you in case of any allergies. The place offers a Luncheon buffet too offering thirty items to choose from at just $8.95.
If you don’t want to go for the buffet option, then you can go for their ala-carte menu choices. Don’t forget to try paneer or chicken tikka masala based on your preference. Shrimp Curry was so flavourful and goes well with Garlic naan. Leave some room for dessert and try pistachio and mango ice creams or gulab jamun (Juicy homemade cheese balls made from cream of milk in scented light syrup).
2. Nimarco's Pizza Westside
Visit this Italian eatery at 1800 S Milton Rd and enjoy their customizable pizza at just $10.50. They have a variety of toppings to offer like Ham, pepperoni, Oven-Roasted Chicken Breast, Bacon, Artichoke Hearts, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and more.
They even have gluten-free and vegetarian variants available. Buffalo Bread offered at this great place will blow your mind and will definitely be one of the best you have ever tried.
3. Swaddee Thai
If you are bored with Italian or Indian and you want an option loaded with veggies, Thai food is your go-to option. Since Thai food is cooked based on the customer’s spice level, you can even customize your food based on your dietary restrictions. Located at 115 E Aspen Ave, Swadee Thai offers fabulous menu options that are delicious and picture-perfect for your Instagram. The papaya salad is one of the best options on their menu.
Try the Singha Beer with Red Curry for a lazy lunch or cozy evening. I also loved their Pad Thai noodles and you can customize the spice level from 1 to 5 depending on how much spice you can handle in your food.
For dessert, try their coconut ice cream which is light icy coconut sherbert topped with ground peanuts. Sweet sticky rice with Thai custard is another delicious choice to satisfy your sweet tooth.
4. The Toasted Owl Café
Located at 12 S Mikes Pike, this American Café is Vegan friendly and even offers Gluten-free choices. They have a variety of menu options made with eggs.
The décor of this place is fun and quirky and the coffee is excellent. I would highly recommend the breakfast tamales. Tamales are available in both vegetarian and beef options.
5. Bandoleros 66 Tex Mex BBQ
Located at 11 E Aspen Ave, Bandoleros 66 Tex Mex BBQ is a vegetarian-friendly place offering menu choices of Mexican variety.
The place has superb service with courteous staff. The tacos here were awesome and full of flavor. They have a wide variety of taco options but my personal favorite was fish tacos out of the four I tried. The margaritas are something that will finish off your day with a spice. The Mexican Street Corn was delicious. One thing that stands out at this eatery is its creativity. The dishes are picture perfect and deserve a post in your Instagram feed.
