“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

End of the season for Aramark concessions, but pleasant help and a nice variety of lunch choices, well prepared and reasonably priced. Cold windy day and hot food was a plus.

“Go for the gift shop NOT food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

This is one of 3 restaurants on the Mesa Verde plateau. The Navajo taco is a major disappointment if you have ever had an authentic one. The quantity of mystery soupy meat is barely discernible, the dish is straight out of Taco Bell.

The Spruce Tree Gift Shop however, is the best at Mesa Verde, offering you the ability to see/buy the arts/crafts of the different tribes that make up the Pueblo Indians.
