Why is good food so important to us?

We travel through a canyon surrounded by 360-degree views of Colorado’s most stunning natural wonders. How can we, in good conscience, serve low-quality, nutritionally vapid food? We can’t. And we don’t.

Onboard the train, you’ll find fresh and tasty entrees for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that bring to life the beauty and bounty of the Royal Gorge and our love for all things Colorado.
