My wife and I had two lunches here and went for the Navajo Tacos both times. Get ‘em! Skip burgers, salads and any other option and just get the Navajo Tacos.

While touring Mesa Verde we stopped here for lunch. Nothing spectacular but decent food at not outrageous prices. I enjoyed lunch and I especially liked being able to get a good beer with lunch as some US Parks don't have beer/wine at their concessions.

This is a busy spot in the park, but has a lot of good choices for food and is very kid friendly. Find parking and walk around this area, don't worry about moving your car from place to place.
