Good Basic Food and If Warm Nice to Eat Outside

We went to this restaurant in past and liked it. We decided to eat outside for the sun and views. The server was great and no one else was out there. We wanted wine and she suggested that we get a bottle which was cheaper. YES, it was. One glass was $8 and the Bottle was $10. Nice woman... read more

It's my favorite place to eat when we are Portal AZ, Breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have the best burger and the best Tacos, don't forget chips and salsa. You can sit inside or outside but on January you have to sit inside because outside it's cold! Outside have great view. I recommend if you're in this area don't miss... More

Great little cafe nestled under mature sycamore trees by the creek. Although I've never stayed at the Lodge, I do frequent the cafe. They serve the best green chili cheeseburgers, a variety of paninis and deli sandwiches, and have several choices of Mexican Food. My favorite are the green enchiladas. Enjoy the ambiance of the canyon, indoors or out, while... More

We had a great appetite while searching for a nice park. We just happened to stumble upon this nice roadside cafe/general store.

If you find yourself in remote Portal, tired of the cheese and crackers in your car, and are looking for a cooked meal, this is the place. Well, really the *only* place. But the good thing is that the food and the service is good. The menu is more varied that you would think for such a location and they... More

My husband and I stayed one night in Portal, Arizona, and enjoyed an evening and next days breakfast at the Portal Peak Café. The evenings entertainment was a band that played lots of surf music + rock and funk. The beer was cold and the dancing fun to either watch or join in. We had breakfast the following morning at...

I have been coming to Portal since 1972. Back then they had gas pumps out front and gas was 36 cents a gallon! It had a post office at the time also. They converted the post office in to a dining area and the pumps are gone. The general store remains the same and the cafe is great the food... More

Store had the basic needs, as we often forget certain items, plus carried locally made goods. A decent selection of books of the locality was on hand for sale. Staff was pleasant and known by the locals.
