Eat up.

Flagstaff is not only famous for its natural wonders but also its culinary discoveries.  Experience some of the best local eateries and libations in the American Southwest. And they are all minutes from Basecamp- Hotel Elev8.

Cajun, Creole, and Barbecue are all comfort foods. They may vary from region to region, but even more so from home to home and family to family. We based our Southern selections and barbecue on traditional ideas that have deep roots and then put our own spin on it.


One of the local favorites in historic downtown Flagstaff is MartAnne’s Burrito Palace, a family-owned Latin-inspired restaurant that consistently serves up amazing dishes with just the right amount of spicy flavoring. The décor is unique and the colorful walls and artwork is a feast for your eyes with a friendly smile ready to take your order. MartAnne’s is known as “the house that chilaquiles built” and this is the place for an authentic traditional Mexican dish!

Although our sophisticated reputation and tasty food causes people to wonder if Karma Sushi Bar Grill is part of a chain, the restaurant is locally owned, and based on the key values of innovation and excellence.
