Food

We were looking for a quick bite to catch sunset & came across this place. We got deli sandwiches but there was tons of teenagers there. Loud & noisy don't completely cover the experience. Go if your hungry for a quick bite. Has some form of food for everyone.

Food for the masses and long lines and plastic utensils and typical cafeteria food by the hired help.

Great little cafeteria with quick service, and hot food. Was able to cater to large tours and still had good quality.

We went into this cafeteria type setup without knowing what there was to choose from. It is setup like a food court and we choose a little deli that had the sub and griled cheese. I have to say it was above par for us, both were very good and not a bad price to be inside the Grand Canyon... More

Our bus tour of the Canyon started here. Although there were two lines, the lines were very long. Buffet should have been more prepared for a large prebooked crowd.

This is a cafeteria in the middle of the dessert. Do not expect much from it. I would recommend that you walk across the parking and try the convenience store which has a very small food court. There you can have something fresh made for you.

And, it's kind of out in the middle of nowhere, and it's got a decent selection, and the food is good, and it's way better than trying to grub up some pine nuts near the canyon rim before the squirrels get them. It's good to keep in mind that this place is a cafeteria, and try to remember the times... More

For what it is, this Cafeteria offered a good selection of food and some of the best soup I think I have had anywhere! Great for a cold winters day in the Grand Canyon. The staff could be a little friendlier, but that was about the only issue we had with the place.
