“Good cafeteria food”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

It's what you'd expect for a cafeteria. I liked the speedy service and the atmosphere. I was hoping for better quality salad and veggies...something we didn't find anywhere in Chinle.

“Canyon DeChelly Tour”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

When we arrived at the lodge we were quite hungry and we immediately went to the cafeteria after checking in. The food was delicious and plentyful. There was a good variety of main courses, salads and deserts. We were furnished roast beef sandwiches the next dfay for our tour which were also delicious. Thank you Thunderbird Lodge/

“good lunch choice in canyon de chelly”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This place is located at the thunderbird lodge. The only hotel in the canyon. Its a cafateria style place with a limited selection of food. mostly native dishes with some american favorits.
On vacation i wanted to sample the local flavor so i got the navajo toco that i thought was good but not great.This place has its charm in decoration and taste , if your in the area its a good choice. works well for a mid day break in touring the canyon.

“Acceptable”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

we were staying at the Lodge, so we ate at the cafeteria a few times. The room is nicely decorated, with rugs on the wall. Chinle is a "sad" place, so presumably this cafeteria is in line with the location. The quality of food doesn't look great. The service depends on the person you find: we met very nice people and very "sad" people. I think for breakfast is better than lunch/dinner. Be aware that the hours of service are very limited.

“Not the Best by a Long Shot!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

I live in the area, so I have visited Thunderbird on several occasions. The food choices are extremely limited and the quality is just not that good. Chinle is not a large place, but there are better alternatives as far as dining goes. The lodge here is very unique and folks we have had stay here really like it, but the cafeteria is just not on the same level. I would much rather eat at Junction.
