“YAY For the little snack bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Very excited to see a menu that includes fry bread and Vegetarian chili. This tiny little snack bar during the summer can get congestively busy with all the tour buses however in the winter time it's nice to just take your time and eat at your pace.

“Sandwiches and drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

At desert view you are 26 miles from the grand canyon village, so eating means eating here. it is strictly pre-prepared burgers and hot dogs, chips and a drink. Price for all is about $8 a person. For cheaper food, there is a market next door.

“Not fancy but perfectly edible”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
