Where to Eat in Flagstaff

This post is sponsored by our partners the Visitors Center Bureau of Flagstaff, but our opinions are ALWAYS our own!

I love to eat, it’s just who I am.  And I especially love visiting different cities and experiencing their eats.  While we were in Flagstaff we were able to dine at so many delicious places.  So here a few of my recommended stops for when you visit!

All of these are kid friendly as well!

 Diablo Burger

This Burger joint is in the downtown area of Flagstaff – which is really cool on its own.  The burgers here are 100% local, open range-raised, antibiotic-free and growth-hormone free.  You can take your family here knowing they are getting super quality food.  And did I mention the fries?!  Oh, they were so good, especially with the sauces.  I love sauce. 


Fat Olives
This Italian restaurant was featured on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives so it has to be good, right?  Well, it was!  I had what Guy had!  And I loved it.  The pizza is certified Vera Pizza Napoletana which means they use only the BEST ingredients.  Do yourself a favor and order the Italian sodas – the blackberry with vanilla is so perfect.  And don’t skip dessert!  If you’re going to eat here you have to get dessert.  We did the s’more pizza which was actually developed by a four-year-old!  Kids are so smart when it comes to yummy desserts.  Excellent service at Fat Olives – our waiter was so knowledgeable!

Grand Canyon Cafe 
We stopped here for breakfast before heading to the Grand Canyon – it was only right.  You will need to fill up before taking the journey to the Grand Canyon and the breakfast there was everything a breakfast should be.  Yummy pancakes and the bacon melted in my mouth.  The kids menu was perfect, even the pancakes came out with cute smiley faces. The menu is eclectic but everything on it is delicious!  It’s on the historic route 66 – a must stop on your way through Flagstaff!

The Fractured Prune 
Do you love doughnuts?  Of course, you do!  So get on over to The Fractured Prune.  The doughnuts are made right in front of your face and the combinations of flavors and toppings are unlike anything I’ve ever had.  I would definitely do the French Toast doughnut. 



Tourist Home 


This coffee shop/breakfast place was really cool.  Also in the downtown Flagstaff area – you’ll feel like a local.  If you stop in on a Saturday you’ll be able to buy the fresh doughnuts as well as a homemade pop tart – which is what I HAD to have!!

Charly’s Pub & Grill 
Right off of the historic route 66 is Charly’s Pub & Grill.  The homemade Mac n’ Cheese was so good.  And if you order the frybread (Navajo Taco) – you won’t need two!  Trust me, when you go you’ll understand!  

Collins Irish Pub & Grill 
Flagstaff has a lot of pubs and breweries so we couldn’t hit them all, but we tried!  A sports bar with excellent food – comfort food to be exact, and fabulous service!  

As soon as you get to Flagstaff make sure you go to the Visitor’s Center.  You will be given a map with so many dining options that everyone in your family will find something they love!  


I’m guessing you’re starting to get hungry? And how could you not with all of these mouth-watering restaurants?!  Make sure you dine in when you arrive in Flagstaff – your taste buds will thank you!
