Excellent Lunch at the Grand Canyon

We've purchased a meal as a package deal for touring the Grand Canyon. The buffet lunch was excellent. The selection of meals were excellent: the salads, main course, the desserts, and the drinks. Well prepared and tasty.

Dinner and breakfast were very good. Breakfast buffet was good according to my daughter and husband. My other daughter had the Arizona eggs benedict which was very good. I had the huevos rancheros that was excellent. For dinner, we had north rim chicken wings, shrimp cocktail, and bright angel chicken. It was all good.

Food ideas were gas station sandwiches. You have to self serve your drink. By time we realized we should have gotten drinks it was to late. Hot dogs were running out. Staff busy to get more packaged. We got to last two pretzels. It would have been nice to have had a hamburger or something else small and fulfilling. Maybe... More

I can only speak to the amazing strawberry ice cream on a waffle cone. Excellent price for creamy ice cream loaded with real strawberries! Fabulous!

A must stop after exploring the South Rim. This little cafe serves many different snacks but the ice cream seems to be the most popular item there!

We stopped in for Hot Dogs, Chips & Sodas. The young people working there keeps everything well stocked so the lines move quickly. We would have been out of there sooner if they had opened up a second cash register. Otherwise very reasonably priced considering they have a captive audience,

It was good, our waiter did not know much though. He kept telling us, after every question, that "I don't normally work in the restaurant"

This was great treat, the single scoop was so much ice cream we couldn't finish it. They were not set up with sandwiches that day but the yumminess of the ice cream made up for it.
