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.

one scoop was enough for me. The price at $3.50 plus tax was OK. The treat hit the spot on a warm October day.

I truly recommend everybody that goes to the South Rim gets the Ice Cream it is absolutely delicious and very fairly priced. That being said warning if you're fellow Brits a single scoop will be more than enough my partner and I both got double scoops and could not finish them. Their portions (as you will know) are much larger... More

We bought our lunch for going down the canyon which was not a great choice and the sandwich we did buy was of poor quality. I think they should have packs with essentials in for walking (like you are given at phantom ranch) including nuts, pretzels, dried fruit and most importantly the electrolyte drink. Bagels are also good.
