Any decent lunch stops between North Rim GC and Springdale?

Hi, we'll be driving from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon to Springdale on Friday July 9 and wonder if there are any good places to stop for lunch en route? Any good places to stop for a stroll with a 2 year old en route would also be useful to know. Thanks very much :-).

On your route you will find a place called Jacobs Lake...it is a nice place to take a break and they have a nice restaurant and bakery there...the food is good, your regular fare...soups, salad, sandwiches, burgers. The bakery is really good....cookies are made fresh daily...yummy. Continuing a bit further on 89 you will come to a town called Kanab...there is a nice park there downtown...on the main street you will find a place called "Nedra's"...I think you will go right past it...not hard to find. Only stop here if you like mexican food and it is very very good mexican food. We have been eating there for years and years! Same owner (Nedra)! and same "Cook" for almost 30 yrs! It is spicy but not "hot"...it is homemade and delicious...

There is an "Old Western Museum" there...lots of fun to explore. Alot of movies were made in that area! Its a very small town so you will be able to navigate it OK. The road work in Zion Park has been changed from daytime to nightime...8pm to 8am now...Sunday thru Thursdays...So Friday should be good...still slow going tho... Enjoy and have fun!

Good advice above. Jacob Lake is just outside the park, about 1 1/2 hours from the Lodge at NR. After that there is NOTHING until you get to Kanab. Nothing special there either. Keep your expectations low and eat to satisfy your needs only.

Plenty of good dining options in Springdale.
