A poor selection of food if you don't want a burrito, especially if you are looking for something without cheese, but plenty of booze for sale. Quite expensive for the foodMore

You can custom make sandwiches to order which my wife did. I selected the freshly grilled half chicken which was very good. We both enjoyed our meals while taking in the beauty of the area. Great place to stop and not break the bank.
