Typical Aramark food and a Starbucks. Nice open area with gift shop and tables with a view of the park.

Lovely facility, service was slow but friendly, food.....mediocre. I did manage to grab a table by the window to enjoy the view, which is spectacular . But rather pricey food that is only average to mediocre doesn't cut it for me. The roof top lounge is much nicer place to enjoy the view and have a beverage and a snack.

Excellent food served in a great environment. Unfortunately, our waiter's name escapes me. He was very personable and knew the menu top to bottom. He made a very nice experience even better!!!

Good option for families and $$-watchers. The Navajo tacos were enormous, enough for 2 people for sure.

Good food with a beautifull view from the top of Mesa Verde. Gp to the left to the buffet if you don't want to wait in line for the omlette at breakfast.

We were surprised that a National Park vendor (ARAMARK) would serve such imaginative and robust food in a cafeteria-type setting. The Navaho Taco ($8.95) was full of flavor and the Southwest Lasagna ($8.95) was tasty and solidly spicy. Great panoramic view of the highh desert. Overall, good experience.

Where my hand was burned by the toaster. Someone adjusted the temperature to the high level, when I picked the bagel that My hand got burned. I was surprised that the restaurant even allowed the customers self-service on that dangerous level. I have complained to the young male manager who simply apologized lightly, it seemed to be my own fault... More

We found the food very good at Mesa Verde. There was a good selection and you could eat pretty healthy.

On the one hand, you can get an edible, hot meal here so you don't have to worry about lugging along your own picnic lunch and keeping food and drink cold. On the other hand, the food just isn't that great. It self-consciously leans toward southwestern fare with attention to preparation more suited to a Burger King than a good... More
