Chose to eat here on the run for our day of touring the canyon. Although they ran out of pizza, everyone was able to find something they liked.

Popped in to get out of the cold and had a surprisingly good and reasonably priced bowl of chilli. Just what's needed on a cold day.

We were hungry when we arrived here. We had the Indian Fry Bread Taco Salad and a Turkey Sandwich. It was reasonably priced. The workers were very friendly and helpful.

Had the turkey sandwich. Yummy, toasted with veggies and Swiss cheese. Loved every bite. Coca was good too, especially since it snowed!

The staff was amazing. Very friendly and helpful even after my kids spilled all over the place and they had to clean it up. They offered my kids a cookie when they seemed to not want to eat and we said ok so we bought it and then they offered to heat it up so it would taste better. The... More
