Another California/Utah/Arizona Road Trip Where to EAT

Jump to last reply

Planning a western parks road trip (Yosemite, Death Valley, Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon North and South Rims, and a sleepover in Angel Canyon (Kanab) . This is coming up in a few weeks. I am covering the cost of the hotels and gas, but Thelma will need to pay for her own meals.

Our overnights are in Camp Curry, Mesquite, Kanab, Hatch, Grand Canyon North Rim Lodge, and Maswik on the South Rim. Timing wise there may be a lunch in Springdale although we won't be doing more than driving Route 9 across the park on the way east.

I am okay with food inside Yosemite as there are some options there and the whole bear thing means we won't be carrying much into the park.

For those who travel the "loop" often or live in the area do you have recommendations for moderately priced, or even cheap, but fairly healthy and even tasty restaurants. Cheap I consider $10 for lunch and under $20 for dinner, excluding tax/tip/beverage.

For Yosemite does anyone think the Ahwanee is worth those prices? I doubt she will want to spring for it unless the food is worthwhile. We can always just walk around and buy a coffee from the bar.

Will stop at Whoa Nellie Del in Lee Vining for a snack on the way out, and have friends in Bishop so dinner is with them.

Which buffet in Mesquite or should we stop in Las Vegas for lunch?

The Hatch restaurants look interesting, any personal recommendations? I am thinking we will bypass Springdale entirely.

Kanab? We will be arriving at Best Friends on Sunday when they don't have their lunch. I Does the town close up early? Most of the hotels seem to expect you to arrive by 8 pm!

Is the food at the North Rim Lodge worth booking dinner or should we just get pizza at the bar?

I am not looking forward to the South Rim food options. I hated the Arizona Room. Is it worth trying to get dinner reservations at El Tovar, or should we go canned tuna and Maswik cafeteria?

Anything worth detouring for on the long drive back to LA, via I-40? What are your favorite stops along the way? Mine is Delgadillo's Sno Cap in Seligman.
