Fodor's Expert Review Carlsbad Caverns Restaurant

$ Carlsbad Caverns National Park American

This comfy, cafeteria-style restaurant adjacent to the gift shop in the visitor center is the only dining option in the caverns' complex other than an underground snack bar. The food—hamburgers, sandwiches, some Mexican dishes—is fine in a pinch. There are also packaged takeout items. Note that no alcohol is served.
