“Nice Indian Tacos”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

My wife and I ate Navajo Tacos at the Cameron Trading Post in Apr 2012. Service was quick and food was warm and tasty. The west window of the restaurant faces west and, depending on weather, the sunset is nice. The restaurant is not as noisy as the nearby bustling tourist shop. I recommend Cameron Trading Post Restaurant if you are in the south rim of the Grand Canyon Nat Park area. When finished with your mean, Flagstaff is immediately south.

“Cameron Trading Post: An Oasis”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Cameron Trading Post makes a wonderful "pit stop" in an area without many services. Be sure to stroll in the small garden behind the older buildings. Food is adequate and filling. Fry bread -- delicious. The regular Navajo Taco is platter-sized, though. The mini-size Navajo Taco is more than enough for one person.

“Good food - Exceptional service!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stayed at the hotel and ate dinner here twice. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. Even though the restaurant was always packed, we didn't have to wait long to get a table or be served our meal. The Navajo Stew is a must try and the bread that comes with it is yummy with honey on it!

“Don't order a prime rib steak in the restaurant!!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

I ordered a medium prime rib steak at a little over $22 and I enjoyed my salad prior to my meal. My steak was served with a jus and baked potato. I tried to cut the steak, which immediately bent the fork as the steak was dry, tough, burned all around the edges and certainly not medium as I had requested.

After complaining, they brought another "prime rib" but two thirds of it was nothing but fat and gristle!! I had a few bites of the baked potato and two or three bites from the centre of the steak, which again bent yet another fork!! This steak again, was inedible. .

When I got the bill, they charged me half price and said I could have a "free desert" which I declined. They said they billed me half price because I had "eaten the salad and some baked potato"!!

I am from England and thought British customer service was bad!!! Being from England, i know all about poor quality steaks. Both the "prime rib" at the Cameron Trading Post and the service was BAD!!!

“one of our favorites!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I really hesitate to write this - don't want to find it too crowded the next time we go!

This is a great stopping place on the way south to Flagstaff/Phoenix or if you are coming from the Grand Canyon via the East road. The restaurant is filled with gorgeous Navajo rugs hanging on the walls.
The staff and food are great, service is friendly and excellent. This visit we had Navajo stew, a rich flavored broth served with fry bread. We are particularly fond of the fry bread and always get some to go home with.

Our last visit a week ago included a short wait for a table - tour buses were there. Though the staff was swamped with customers, I never felt as though we were rushed through our meal. The food was excellent, hot, and nicely presented.

Bring your appetite - they don't serve skimpy portions and the prices are reasonable.

Thank you again to the staff - we had another great meal & visit!
