We walked through once, it's standard junk food. We didn't even try it. Walk over to the store, the have a nice deli which can make sandwiches on gluten free bread!! Buy stuff at the store and eat at the deli!!!

We were impressed with the different food stations and the variety of foods available. This is the place to eat on a daily basis when in the park.

This is standard cafeteria food. It's slightly more expensive than normal but then you're at a tourist attraction so that's no surprise. If you are hungry and want to eat for a reasonable price then this is you place. If you want something that tastes great go somewhere else.

Overpriced, overcrowded, food bland. You're better off getting supplies from next door and using your room. Sooner or later, you'll have to hit one of the restaurants. This seemed better for fast food fare. I didn't eat the high end stuff, like ribs, but heard a lot of people complaining.

The Yavapai Cafeteria is another concession run by Xanterra and, as others have described, the food is just plain YUCKY. I honestly don't know what they could do to get eggs like that - cook them in giant batches and then let them sit and boil under heat lamps? Tasteless coffee to boot.

We stopped her for breakfast on our way out of the park and were extremely disappointed. The scrambled eggs were green and rubbery. The kids opted for a prepackaged muffin and orange which were the only food they enjoyed. My husband opted for the breakfast burrito meal and it was the only thing tolerable. If you're in the immediate area,... More

After hiking the Angel Bright trail for 6 hours I would have eaten a boiled shoe. I was expecting airport restaurant prices like a $10.00 hot dog. The entrees with two sides were only $8.95. I had a Pot roast with mushroom gravy and carrots and baked potatoe. Other entrees were spheghetti/meatsauce, ribs, salisbury steak, etc. They also have burgers,... More

A cafeteria. OK food, slightly elevated prices, friendly (inexperienced) staff from all over the world. Since we spent most of our time out of doors, we only ate a breakfast and a dinner here. The Grand Canyon market had good ingredients for both breakfast and sack lunches.

A buddy and I ate here a couple of times, once right after walking out of the Canyon so maybe that caused us to have a better opinion of the place than many. I got a Ruben sandwich there twice and found it to be very good and I like Ruben sandwiches. My buddy got other things and he liked... More

Disorganised chaos, yet the staff don't seem to care.Food was ordinary. Couldn't work out where the line started or what to do.Eat somewhere else.
