Typical fast food - pizza, casadias, brats, sandwiches, - at a tourist attraction. The cook/server did a nice job - no complaints.

We weren't disappointed in the food...we were disappointed that they we're closed. It seems that the AC was on the fritz and, since it was 108 degrees inside, they closed up. Darn! I hope they're open when you visit.

Just like how other things ran during our visit to Kartchner, their cafe was quick, easy, and very good as well. They had everything from salads to sandwiches, coffee, tea, water, and more. I'd stop here again on another visit to the caverns.

I had a quesadilla on a burrito-size flour tortilla. It had chicken, tomato, onion and cheese for $8.99. It did not come with a side or a beverage. Of course, most tourist attractions are overpriced. I would recommend eating before you arrive, bringing your own...More

This cafe is on the property of Kartchner Caverns State Park. They have good food especially their casadias and prickly pear lemonade. The lemonade is the best and the staff is very accommodating. I enjoyed their menu.
