Grand Taco and Grand Canyon.
For a few hot seconds, we made our way into Arizona. We wanted our road trip to include both Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. After seeing both natural beauties, we celebrated with lunch at Fiesta Mexicana in Page, AZ.
On the front of the menu, I saw that Fiesta Mexicana had a location in Sedona, AZ, and thought for a second that I may have been to this restaurant after backpacking to Havasu Falls exactly 4 years ago. Thankfully, my blog answered this question and reminded me that I had eaten at Oaxaca Restaurant.
The combination platter I had at Fiesta Mexicana was just as spectacular as the combo platter I had at Oaxaca Restaurant. The platter came with a crunchy chicken taco, enchilada, and rice and beans. The shell was thick and could handle any amount of chicken thrown into it without falling apart. The cheese was rich and creamy and the tomatoes seemed fresh. I gave the taco a 4 out of 5 as everything was amazing on the taco, but it did not take the wow factor step to make it a 5.
As we devoured our lunch, we were wondering how we wanted to spend the remainder of the day before traveling back into Utah. Our original thought was to kayak on Lake Powell, but we were not sure about the water level. Instead, we went with the major theme of this trip: hiking in National Parks. Kevin has never seen the Grand Canyon, so we decided to take an impromptu 1.5 hour trip to the northeast section of the Grand Canyon. I would like to think that our hearty lunch and that one taco helped drive this great decision.
Price: Combo platter with 3 items $18.99.
