Cameron Trading Post

This was a rest stop after we departed from the east side entrance of the Grand Canyon on our organized bus tour road trip. Cameron Trading Post has a hotel, restaurant, and a couple of shops. There's a gallery containing works from Navajo artisans including Navajo weaved rugs. According to our tour guide, the garden behind the hotel was started by the original founder wife - Mabel. Amazing to see what she was able to cultivate out in the desert as some of her original plants are still thriving. We walked through both the standard gift shop and the high end artisan gallery. My daughter purchased some western inspired items. 10% discount if you're part of a bus tour.
The food is decent but not great. I had the Navajo tacos which was pretty good but was short on the meat. My GF had the cheeseburger which was ok but nothing to write home about. The service was so-so and it took forever to get the check when we were ready to go. All in all its a ok place to stop if you are hungry and can't wait until Page or Flagstaff depending on which way you are going.
If you are from Arizona or in the four corners area this would be on my bucket list. If you are visiting the Grand Canyon, come out though Cameron and eat here. This is our second visit and I made a point to be coming through this area at lunch time. You enter the restaurant through a large souvenir store. This place also had a motel where we stayed several years ago and it was a pleasant stay. Any how. The restaurant is the back of the trading post. There are two entrances. The dining room is very formal looking with everything neat, orderly, very crisp and clean. There are indian rugs on the wall and indian paintings and artifacts decorating the room. I have eaten at some very expensive places that did not look near as good as this dinning room. The waiters, people bussing the tables, hostess are very professional, helpful, and courteous. Now the food. I don't remember everything on the menu but I am sure you can look it up on line. I got the green chili stew and my wife got the Navajo beef stew. Both were excellent choices. They come with a large indian fry bread with honey and butter. ( I am on a low carb diet by choice and this day I chose this day to not be on that diet.) I really wanted to get the Navajo taco but they are huge and I had to waste food. If you go I would suggest splitting the taco with someone. There is plenty for two people. Most of the foods have a southwest or Indian flavor. I know of no place you can get food like they serve here. It is a real treat. Put it on your list if you are traveling through the area. If you live within 100 miles and have not eaten there.....Why?
