SPOILER ALERT! WE SERVE DELICIOUS FOOD

by Mark Greksa (Owner)

I’m a foodie. I love good, nutritious food, period. While fast, low-quality food is the typical fare found at most tourist destinations, or heck, maybe at the hotel you stayed at last night, I refuse to serve it to the 100,000 people who ride our train each year.

You know what I’m talking about… fake eggs, pre-packaged, sugary pancakes and high-fructose corn-syrup canned fruit for breakfast; dollar-deal high-sodium, no-nutritional value burgers with soggy, fat-laden, no-taste fries for lunch; and mega-calorie, high-fat, low-quality ingredient choose-your-poison dinners.

This stuff is killing us and most folks just put up with it, even when they’re on vacation.

Why is good food so important to us?

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

A few years ago, we began to evolve our offerings so that they aligned with our values.  Today, we have fresh and tasty menus that jive with our location and our love for all things Colorado. Excluding, of course, Denver rush-hour traffic.

The scenery and service aboard the Royal Gorge Route Railroad are second to none, as is the the train’s full service bar of well-curated local, organic and domestic wines and micro brews, as well as your favorite libations and aperitifs. Each enhance the occasion and make dealing with the kids (or in-laws?) that much more enjoyable.

Our well-priced dining services are made with natural and organic ingredients whenever possible and practical; and all meats, and virtually all produce, are raised and grown locally as well. Order a chicken entree, and you’ll actually see a photo of the chicken you’re about to eat, complete with its birth certificate…(just kidding).

No Meal Deals Here Folks

Does this cost more than say…KFC or McDonalds? Yes. So please don’t enjoy the food, then complain on Trip Advisor that it costs more than grabbing a burger at Bob’s Burger Barn.  Good quality, delicious food costs more than a meal-deal.  It’s a fact. But it’s worth it, I promise.

You might think this is a financial boon to the train, right?  Nope.  We give up the astronomical margins that processed packaged food offer and fast food companies enjoy because we care more about your long-term health and immediate enjoyment than they do.

Our goal is for you to savor every part of your experience aboard the Royal Gorge Route Railroad, and that you leave us energized and inspired for your next adventure.
