Okay for breakfast

The food is predictable - a hot bar with pre-cooked eggs, pancakes, breakfast meats, etc. There is also an omlette bar, where it can take forever to get served when there are several people in line. Other items are oatmeal, cold cereals, toasts and the like. Starbuck's drip coffee in cafeteria; an... read more

Had to ask to be seated away from kids, even though they were quite well-behaved. Bread was incredibly yummy, but had to ask for it. We each had a salad then split the duck breast, which was rather bland, but medium rare and tender. Good views of the valley. Reservations at 8, so window-side tables were not available and reservations... More

We stopped here for lunch while in Mesa Verde Park. We queued at the counter to order the food and this was fairly quick but then we, along with many other people, waited over 40 minutes before it was ready to pick up. When it did arrive it wasn't great but considering it was in a national park it was... More

We did not eat here but we did look at the options and it smelled great. As we watched the people that DID elect to eat here, we found them getting their simple foods MUCH quicker than we were served at the Metate Room Next time, I will eat here for the quality and value of the place

Husband and I stopped here for lunch. Not great not bad. Very mild curry, red tomato with white chicken meat over uncle bens rice. What? What happened to basmati . Other nice looking selections pizza, hamburgers, brats and refills on soda. Ok, nice seating, clean bathrooms. Not too busy.

Great for a quick meal or drink. Lots of seating for lots of tourists. We only got a drink because the windy roads said "don't eat or get sick"

Enjoyed lunch here--hamburgers, Navajo taco, and pulled pork ....everything was pretty good but the home made chips were really super. Set up was pretty efficient as were the workers. The restaurant was very, very warm, and there clearly needs to be more bathrooms. There is a nice covered terrace in the back that was a good place for us to... More

I thought for a quick service restaurant the breakfast food was very good and a decent price. Service was efficient, and there was plenty of tables.

This restaurant has a cafeteria style service. Some of the food looked fresh, some looked like it had sat there way too long. Limited choices and quality at full service prices. I chose to skip it and eat something from my cooler. A case of captive audience!
