When you walk in you order your entree at what looks like the hostess's station. She will then give you a number on your tray. You can then get your sides (but apparently not if you order a kids meal), drinks, and treats, then you go to the cashier to pay, then sit down and wait for your entree to... More

Would give it less than a start if possible. Worst salad I've ever had. Inedible, we had to throw it all away. It's not easy to totally mess up a salad. Stay away, this place needs serious improvements!

We went during dinner but there was no one there. We waited over 30 mins for $7 kids pasta plate when this place is supposed to be a "fast" place. I would never go back and waste my money there again. Service and food was terrible.

It is the cheaper of the two options on site, and I think this place exists because the people on site probably don't know of any other options that are available. Overpriced for what you get, and what you get isn't that great.

We wanted to stop for a “quick” lunch just to hold us over until dinner. The food and drinks were overpriced and it took a really long time for our food to be prepared even though there were only about 3 other families there and we didn’t arrive at the same time . The entire place smelled of grease and... More

They had a pretty nice children's menu with plenty of choices, they also had a decent selection of choices of drinks and foods for the adults. I had the classic deli sub, it was very tasty, however it was so large that it was hard to fold to get it into my mouth. The french fries were very tasty and... More

We went for dinner and it was okay. Some of the staff obviously tried very hard to make this a good experience for the customers, but others seemed lost. The food was okay, not great, not awful. I might go back again, but I'd try other options first.

This is a quick and satisfying place to grab lunch or a snack. They open at 1100am, we had the nachos and cheeseburger both were very appetizing

We enjoyed the Pioneer Grill at Jackson Lake Lodge much more. Decided to try this place on promise of "Mexican" food. They do have burritos and quesadillas and they were grill top cooked and overall tasty. Don't expect fine food, more of a cafeteria style. But still much better than almost anything you will find in YNP.
