We visited Flagstaff this past Christmas, the only place open was Granny’s Closet, a family-type place. It was pretty good. We had wanted to try some of the places on the old Rte. 66 thru town, but they were closed that day. Some of them near the railroad station looked very interesting.
While visiting the Navajo Nation, please try a Navajo taco. A good place to do this would be at the Four Corners monument, but Kayenta or Tuba City would also be good choices. They are large, filling, and tasty. If, at the Four Corners monument, you are too full for a Navajo taco – I would suggest, at least, getting some fry bread with a little honey, jelly, or cinnamon/sugar.
Oops, that’s ‘Francisco’s’
In Durango, Francico’s Restaurant y Cantina on Main Street is terrific. This is a fairly large, long-established place with great food and margaritas.
As an aside, the Bureau of Land and Mines runs an Anasazi Museum near Cortez that my wife and I tremendously enjoyed. Los of hands-on exhibits.
We roadtripped some of the area you will be passing thru just this past May. Here is a link to our trip report. Hope some of this helps.[8D]
