This restaurant is great for burgers, pie, and brews and a glimpse of the old west. It's a fun place for tourists and locals alike. There's so much history as an old stage coach stop.

Tucked off Interest 17 on the way to Sedona and Flagstaff, is Rock Springs Cafe, just off the Rock Springs exit,or reverse if coming into Phoenix. It is about 45 miles north of Phoenix and makes a great stop for breakfast, up to 11 am, or lunch. We make this our stop when we are heading this way. The food... More

Absolutely disgusted. We were told when we arrived for the barbecue that no more tickets were being given out!!! We had friends from Phoenix. The girls in the outside booth said food was running out Wow. It was a barbecue from 1:00 pm till 10:00 pm. We reside in Black Canyon City every winter here. We will NEVER go again.... More

Was sent here en route to Sedona with the promise of the world's best pie. It's definitely an interesting place to stop, but horseshoe cactus and wooden Indians aside, the service is indifferent, bordering on grumpy, and the pie is just alright. Not bad, but not sure it's worth the stop on the way.

The food was simple and absolutely delicious. The pies are out of this world. Great ambiance, with interesting decor and great service. A fun place to go with children.

I tried hard to find a way to give this a 3. However between the four of us, we couldn't come up with one. Black bean veggie burger was ok, the bun was horrible. Like a $2 bag of Stroehmann rolls. White starched chemical roll. Fries were tasty but I was the only one that thought that. Fish & chips... More

Four old folks who had been friends for 60 years met for lunch with four of their children. We needed a quiet spot where the old folks could hear. We got a great table in the back room and great servers who were patient and efficient. The reunion couldn't have worked out better. We all sat for more than two... More

We went twice because we were celebrating our birthdays. The pie crust absolutely melt in your mouth. Located just off major highway. Large signs for directions. We didn't order a meal but had pies. Sure wish it was closer!

I've been driving by Rock Springs Cafe for 30 years and always heard how great the pies are, so today My wife and I drove up to Rock Springs for breakfast. We live in the East Valley and by the time we got out there we had to wait a good 30 minutes for a table. Unfortunately the wait was... More

We show up and she tells us there's a 30-35 minute wait. We wait 35 minutes, I go to counter and ask what's up. She tells me another 20-25. Mind you everyone before us has been seated. What a screwed up business. Anyway we went to another restaurant a little north of this place, (chileens on 17) which had much... More
