My wife and I had the pleasure of enjoying two meals at this wonderful place. We stayed across the street at the hotel and enjoyed our dinner so much, we ignored our Denny's discount cards and joined them again for breakfast. Both meals were wonderful.
This restaurant is easy to ignore. It is basically a collection of tables inside a gas station / gift shop / bathroom kind of travel center. It has the look of any other food court in a highway rest stop but with only one choice. If that stops you from eating here, you are cheating yourself from some amazing food and great service.
I had their stew of the day and a fry bread taco. My wife had a fry bread taco. The stew was perfect after a long hot date of exploring the Grand Canyon. It was tasty but not overly rich as stews tend to be. Overly rich is great on a cold winter day, but not for the summer. The stew had pork, corn, and green chiles and the bite of the peppers along with the salty sweetness of the corn and pork were wonderful. The tacos were amazing as well. The fry bread was cooked perfectly and the toppings were delicious. The service for dinner was exceptionally friendly and it was right then when we decided we would be back for more in the morning.
Breakfast was just as good. The selections were more American than native, but were delicious and prepared well. I had what was called the Hopi Special, but it was as hearty and good as any NJ Diner breakfast special that I have ever had (and if you are in NJ and have had a good diner breakfast, you know just how much of a compliment that is). For a very low price, I had 3 eggs, sausage, hash browns, coffee, and biscuits and gravy. My wife had fried Spam and blue corn pancakes. All joking aside, it is actually neat that they had Spam on the menu as it is not often seen. The pancakes were also delicious. Again, the young man who served us was exceptionally friendly and professional. A couple of little things he did really impressed me. At one point, he noticed my coffee was empty and asked if I needed a refill. He was working on some other things and so before he brought me coffee, I noticed that he washed his hands. Yes it is a little thing, but sadly many waiters would not think to wash their hands before picking up a coffee pot unless they were in the restroom beforehand. Secondly, when we were getting ready to leave he noticed my wife had only drank part of her soda refill. Without even asking, he brought over a Styrofoam take out cup and lid so she could take the rest with her. Little things? Sure, but it is those little things that make a restaurant or restaurant worker exceptional.
All in all, it was a great dining experience and if you ever happen to be traveling through Tuba City, make you you stop hear for a delicious meal.
