    Gouldings: Gouldings has a restaurant

    view from the restaurant window

    This restaurant is a good 30 miles, at least from Goosenecks and not the closest (Mexican Hat is closer)
    There are no facilities at Goosenecks.
    At Gouldings, breakfast was OK. Being in Navajo country, Fry bread came with everything.
    Fantastic view from our seat by the window, but it looked like every seat had a great view looking toward Monument Valley.

    Any Navajo 'restaurant': Navajo Fry bread & Mutton Stew from the Navajo

    Mutton Stew on Navajo Fry Bread

    If you are in the are of Goosenecks, you are in Navajo or Ute country. If you want to sample the local food options, you need to try the traditional staple of the Navajo families, Mutton Stew on Fry Bread.
    Actually Fry bread comes with almost everything around here.. They use it as a tortilla, and with sugar if becomes a donut!
    There are many smallish Navajo restaurants that are booths made of plywood along the side of the road leading to the Monument Valley Visitor center. If you are a squeamish eater this may not be an option for you as the services and general appearance of these restaurants is very unlike the MacDonald's on the interstates. It reminded me more of dining in roadside sodas in Costa Rica
    than of any 'American" restaurant I have ever been to. The food did taste great though.

    Favorite Dish: Navajo Fry Bread.. Well, this fried dough in the carnivals and you get an idea of what this is.. Think really flat donut and you get an idea of what this is. Is it good for you.. Not likely, but even my Atkinsy inclination had to go for seconds on this one.

    None! Take care about...

    None! Take care about lunchpackages if your driving through these areas. You have to take some detours into towns and villages if you want to have a prepared dish in a restaurant. From Kayenta to Blanding there are not many signs of civilisation, so if you do not want to make extra milage, fill up the tank and the picknick-basket.
