A routine stop for us on the way to Sun City

Somehow this place is located at just about the right time for us to stop for breakfast or lunch along our annual journey to Sun City to visit family. Big breakfasts, huge biscuits, great pies. We always come away with at least the JD Pecan pie to share with family.

People are lined up for this restaurant. Parking is hard to find at mealtime. Springs are man made. Garden is a nice walk. The General Store has jewelry and unique food items that are bottled or packaged. They also have unique fruits and vegetables for sale. Wood carvings, moccasins and placemat weavings are also for sale. Around the corner from... More

Driving back to Sedona from the Grand Canyon, we heard a radio commercial for the Rock Springs Cafe and their famous "Jack Daniels Pecan Pie." As a matter of fact, we must have heard the commercial 3 or 4 times! So, we just had to stop and see what all the supposed fuss was about. Well, from the outside, it's... More

Country cowboy quaint, but the food is excellent along with excellent service, who can complain. Sautéed onions on a delicious hamburger (1/2 mind you) and a shared piece of Bourbon Pecan pie is enough to make you want to take a nap instead of heading off on I-17. It is located nowhere near any thing, but the place was packed... More

Great restaurant in the middle of nowhere, but somehow just the right spot when you need it. The pie is awesome and that is what this place is famous for. I liked the old fashioned service, the gift shop and the food which was more than plentiful and very affordable.

Had breakfast then returned for pie. Both were great! Service was very nice-very friendly. The pie was all we had heard it to be!

This was a pleasant surprise! First time at the Rock Springs Cafe, past it several times while visiting Arizona but never stopped! The food was very good, I had catfish which was lightly pan fried. They only give you one piece which wasn't very big so if you are hungry this is not for you. My husband had the pork... More

Had dinner here. Fun place with gift shops, beautiful springs, fun funky place and good pies and lots of them. Whew! Dinner was decent, maybe 3 stars, but overall atmosphere, fun factor, and pies puts it into the 4 star category. Ok maybe 3.5 stars. We are looking forward to going again.

You have to stop here for pie anytime you head up north. The variety is amazing and taste the best I can't wait to come back and try another flavor.

Drove out here (about 10 miles) after doing the Desert Wolf Tom Car tour just south of here due to a friends recommendation. Well worth it. Café tied to a general store and the focus is PIES! There was quite a line when we arrived on a Thursday around noon. I had the chicken salad sandwich with fries (love it... More
