Pretty good for it's location

This isn't the best food you will have, but the question is it more convenient than packing a picnic lunch. For us it was. My wife and I had BBQ sandwiches and they were fine. Kids had hot dogs and liked them too.

A Great drive to get to the Trail Ridge Store Snack Bar. A Great place to stop once you get to the visitors center. Most times you will see wildlife on your way up. Sometimes on busy summer days there will not be any parking spaces in the parking lot.

The food offered here is okay. My nephew loved the beef chili. my father had the brat and I, the hotdog. We found them to lack in taste. Prices were excessive. A Crustables" peanut butter and jelly sandwich was about $2.50. The views out the windows were breathtaking. I think in th future I'll pack a lunch and admire the... More

Good stopping point on the road for bathrooms, snacks and souvenirs. They have a coffee shop plus hot dogs, pretzels and other sandwiches and tables with views overlooking the mountains.

Over many years, we always stop at the top for warming drinks & view the valley looking down the old Fall River Road. Kids wold get hot chocolate,now grown, we get the various specialty coffees.

This is definitely a good stop to make when going over the pass. The only reason it is four stars instead of five is the limited (and somewhat unhealthy) choices, but it is understandable, given the location. The views are wonderful. It feels like you are on top of the world. The atmosphere is relaxed and there are many windows... More

This is a nice place to stop and stretch your legs after a very scenic ride. The restaurant is cafeteria style but the food is pretty good. The chili is flavorful and a good size serving for the price. The best seats are by the window.

The food was good. The views were excellent. All the people are very friendly. You just have to go and eat there if nothing else but to say you did.

By the time you get to this snack bar, you are probably ready for a break! I visited with my 8 yr old daughter after driving up Trail Ridge Road from Estes Park in June. The weather was warm and sunny, but there was still some snow and many people taking pictures in the snow (both at the snack shop... More

Eating at 12,000+ feet is always fun! The weather changes by the minute, and the view is incredible! The options are limited (it's hard to get food up that high!) but it's always hot, the service is good, and it's nice to sit down for a while and enjoy the scenery. The gift shop always has fun things to look... More
