“Good prices for tourist attraction”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

There was a nice variety of food for a cafe and the prices were comparative to most fast food restaurants. Really my only complaint was lack of lids for drinks.

“Quick eats with a view”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

The food is pretty good, for what it is. They have hamburgers,hot dogs and wraps. The cafe is a little pricey but it's convenient and has a great view.

“Hit the spot!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I was glad to find that this restaurant exists in Fossil Rim as it it made finding a place for lunch easy. It's basically a hamburger joint with some other selections. The food was not only good but the prices were more than reasonable considering they have somewhat of a captive clientele.

“good eats”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Excellent hamburgers at a fair price and a great view. This is a great place to stop and eat halfway through Fossil Rim. You can drive directly to it if you dont want to go on the tour.

“Good Eats In Fossil Rim”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

It's good at what it does with the food they provide (burgers and such). Prices were a little high, but the food was good and the staff very friendly. Plus the money helps Fossil Rim, which is good.
