Inside the Park -- If you're looking for a quick, inexpensive meal, there are plenty of options. In Grand Canyon Village, choices include cafeterias at the Yavapai and Maswik lodges and a delicatessen at Canyon Village Marketplace on Market Plaza. The Bright Angel Fountain, at the back of the Bright Angel Lodge, serves hot dogs, sandwiches, and ice cream and is always crowded on hot days. My favorite place in the park to grab a quick bite is the Hermit's Rest Snack Bar at the west end of Hermit Road. The stone building that houses this snack bar was designed by Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter, who also designed several other buildings on the South Rim. At Desert View (near the east entrance to the park), there's the Desert View Trading Post Cafeteria. All of these places are open daily, and all serve meals for $10 and under.

In Tusayan (Outside the South Entrance) -- You'll find a steakhouse and a pizza place, as well as familiar chains such as McDonald's, Pizza Hut, and Wendy's.
