    Their chili dogs are amazing, but really hot so if you're not a fan of spicy, I'd recommend the bacon egg and cheeseburger

    Try some of the Canteen's "Originals," like the Sweet Potato Fries and the Bacon and Egg Cheeseburger (which is excellent). On the burger, go for a double if you've got a large appetite.

    Looks further from the map, but prob < 10 mins from 95 or Merritt. Don't snooze on the Mac & Cheese bites, but try something *besides* the Bison Burger and lemme now know how it goes.

    The food's good & it's a landmark, but the chili is NOT hot by any means. You want it 'hot', try Kuhn's chili. :D
