We stopped in after rafting and on our way to Garden of the Gods. This is in the gift shop area at the Garden, at the Trading Post. My husband ordered the buffalo burger, I ordered a spinach salad, and my kids had homemade potato chips and fries. All was very good. It was clean, and the staff was very courteous. For a quick bite, this is a good place to stop and is well suited to families. In fact, there's an outside eating area and a "panning" activity for the younger kids.

Tried the Buffalo Wrap, very lean, served cold. Friendly crew. The outdoor seating area has relaxing water features and landscaping. Time-saving, convenient location in the Trading Post.

Surprisingly good food. Consider the buffalo burgers. The adjacent trading post (tourist store) is large and has higher quality items than typical.

we enjoyed our stay here, and the food was very nice. It is in the middle of the gift shop, so you can browse as you wait for your food.!!! We enjoyed some good food here while resting. The entire area is very lovely. Definately worth a stop:)
