How I heard of this place: After having shared an evening of prayers and spiritual food at the Redmond Baha’i Center, friends wanted to go out for a bite to eat and some light conversation. Walking through the parking lot to Soul Food Books & Cafe, it was quickly realized that they were closing soon and hosting a large number of patrons at a concert. So we switched gears, walked further through the parking lot and into Canyons.
Type of cuisine: A variety of options, which includes something for everyone; from tender Baby Back Ribs, Sizzling Fajitas and Juicy Burgers to Crisp Specialty Salads, Spicy Fish Tacos, Outrageous Burritos, Tasty Wraps and much more. Their website boasts that the “food is fresh, has been carefully prepared and is unique in flavor and style. Our Tap Room features an extensive lineup of regional handcrafted and bottled beers, varietal wines and a proud selection of spirited libations.”
Ambiance: A unique atmosphere with a southwestern flair, filled with artwork, metallic sculptures, rock carvings and “inspirational mural depicting cave wall images from around the world that seem to transcend time and man himself”.
What I ordered: The four of us at the establishment chose to share two bar appetizers and one ice cream sundae. One order of steak quesadillas ($9) with the addition of sour cream ($0.79) and guacamole ($0.79) and one order of the ultimate nachos ($8.50) with chicken and the additional sour cream and guacamole. The ice cream sundae ($3.99) came with two scoops of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, maraschino cherries and a side of peanuts.
What I loved: I loved the huge pile of nachos and the jalapneos atop! The steak, onion and cheese quesadilla had great flavor, a slightly sweeter tortilla and was reminiscent of a plate of fajitas!
Why I loved it: The service was quick and friendly and the bar area served food well into the evening (we were there until nearly midnight!).
Cost: Average ($8-$10 for late-night bar food, without happy hour prices)
