We enjoyed our dinner here. The food was surprisingly good for Tusayan, which is a tiny community just outside the entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park South Rim. The restaurant is as expensive as the best restaurants in nearby Grand Canyon National Park, but at least Big E offers convenient parking. My husband and I spent $100 for very good meals and tip, without appetizers, dessert or alcohol. The menu is a la carte. The restaurant has a stage and a movie screen consisting of about 28 TVs all patched together into a big rectangle screen. The restaurant owner also owns Papillon Helicopter, and has acquired many beautiful aerial photos and videos of the Grand Canyon. The restaurant showed a nice movie of beautiful aerial photos of the Grand Canyon and nearby areas. After that movie finished a magician came onstage and presented a magic act; this was a hit with the children in the audience Next the restaurant showed a movie consisting of short film clips from old western movies. The aerial photos and old Western film clips were entertaining and gave a flavor of the old West. The service was good. The decor is nice. Our server told us that the restaurant occasionally has live bands. The restaurant has a bar attached and a comfortable lobby waiting area.
