“Convenient, reasonably priced, tasty & satisfying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Having the cafeteria on site is definitely a great convenience for tourists, since there is nothing else around! The prices were reasonable and we were pleasantly surprised to have such a tasty dinner. We had a turkey sandwich and a spicy pork and vegetable soup -- a nice, leisurely meal while waiting for the evening bat flight. We sat side by side looking out the windows and enjoyed the desert landscaping while eating. What more could you ask for?!

“Hard to judge because it was for a large group”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We had a group of over 60 for a class field trip, so some of the food was cold. The general consensus was that the burgers were mediocre at best.

Definitely get the paninis - nice and grilled crisp!

“Good cafeteria food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Good eats right inside the visitor center. You are at least 10 miles from other options. It's good food and it's convenient. A little expensive for what you get but not too bad.

“Mexican Food Fix”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

My husband really wanted to eat there, as the menu boasts authentic southwestern dishes. I was skeptical, but we dined there twice, for both lunch and dinner, and the food was very reasonable and quite good. It is without question, the best food anywhere for miles around. Eat there if you can, and don't attempt Whites City.
