“Not fancy but perfectly edible”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Our teenageger loved the vegetarian burger here. In fact the vegetarian options were great so it automatically went up a notch in my review. Basic cafeteria style food - burgers, hotdogs, chilli.

“Desert View Trading Post Cafeteria”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The atmosphere in this place was very good, mainly due the very friendly guy behind the register. Food was okay as well (don't expect anything too special, it's just a cafetaria after all) and prices weren't too high considering that you are eating 50 meters from the south rim of the grand canyon. Normally, I'd give it 3 stars out of 5 but the nice people at the restaurant made it a 4 which is very good for a cafetaria style restaurant I think.

“Good Value Grub!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Lots of food to choose from burgers, salads, soups etc. Plenty of desserts too...loved the cherry pie! Good value, clean and a nice place to rest during your Canyon visit.
