Recommendations for Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Route 66

MrsBridges | Sep 13, 2016 03:40 PM

I'm visiting AZ for the first time. My itinerary:
Arrive Flagstaff Sunday, drive to Grand Canyon. Mon-Tuesday, sightseeing along rim. I have a reservation for El Tovar Tue evening.

Wednesday- drive to Petrified Forest on most scenic route available. Hike in forest and Painted Desert. I have a hotel reservation in Flagstaff.

Thursday: explore Flagstaff, Route 66 area, maybe visit Lowell Observatory.

Very early Friday: depart on Amtrak Southwest Chief.

I'm seeking recommendations for good local food and places of historic/cultural interest. I'm starting with a daily food budget of $100, to be adjusted as necessary. In the spirit of exploration, I'm willing to compromise on food standards, eg I won't object to a mediocre burger in an establishment that looks like exactly as it did in Route 66 glory days .

I'm not very knowledgeable about southwest or Native American cuisine in the 4 corners. I don't like black beans, but I will keep an open mind if a dish comes highly recommended. I live in the Detroit area, if that helps with recommendations. I am traveling solo, so I don't have to accommodate anyone else's tastes.
