Visitors to the Park will be happy to find a fresh, flavorful, healthy menu that offers both hot and cold entrees. Our food service provides some of the finest regional Southwestern dishes, such as burritos and quesadillas, as well as "Americana" food items like hot paninis or burgers. All hot food is made-to-order and customized for your preference.

For those guests who are in a rush, we offer "Grab & Go" sandwiches, a wide range of salads, parfaits, and baked goods, along with a wide selection of healthy drinks.

In spite of our desert location, we partner with New Mexico and Texas farms to provide local food products and to sustain local economies. Our aim is to provide some of the finest and most affordable food in the National Park system, and we hope that you find yourself refreshed after your hike in the caverns.
