Explorer’s Cafe with Pizza Hut Express

The Visitor Center is the number one destination for vacationing families to stop at before going further into the Grand Canyon. Visitors can browse interactive exhibits, choose from many guided tours, watch our famous IMAX® movie or even dine in our Explorer’s Café. With a large selection of food and beverage choices, the Explorer’s Café is a pleasant dining experience for every hungry guest.


Every day, we go to work hoping to do two things: share great coffee with our friends and help make the world a little better. It was true when the first Starbucks opened in 1971, and it’s just as true today.

We Cook Pizza & Pasta

Since you’re going to be driving past us on your way to the Grand Canyon National Park, you should stop by We Cook Pizza and Pasta where you can enjoy some great pizza like our hand-tossed specialties or 10” stuffed Calzones, or try the killer hot wings, a savory pasta carb buildup or crispy-fresh salad bar, all washed down with a frosty cold beer, domestic wine or icy sodas!


At Wendy’s, we’re all about serving up fresh food, even if it means going the extra mile. When you walk through our doors, we do what we can to make everyone feel at home because our family extends through your community.
