What to Eat in Grand Canyon

Unlike many other national parks, the Grand Canyon is home to several restaurants and grocery stores, meaning you won't have to necessarily stock up before you enter the park. There are an abundance of establishments on the South Rim (especially Grand Canyon Village), and fewer resources on the North Rim.

Many travelers prefer a quick meal at one of the on-site cafeterias in the South Rim, instead of an extended (and expensive) meal at one of the park's restaurants. Many of the Grand Canyon's restaurants are housed within the park's lodges, including the El Tovar Hotel and Bright Angel Lodge. Recent travelers said many of the restaurants in nearby Tusayan, Arizona, are particularly disappointing. In fact, many recommended packing lunches from local delis, such as RP's Stage Stop and Canyon Village Market, each located near the South Rim entrance to the national park.
