Mining Camp Restaurant & Trading Post

A great place to consume a wonderful old west meal is at the Mining Camp Restaurant just below the Superstition Mountains. In 1961, the Mining Camp Restaurant and Trading Post opened its doors to the public. The building was constructed of large Ponderosa Pine trees found in Payson. Today it has a mining camp look and feel to it.

When you walk in, you first see a waiting area and then the trading post. From there you are seated at a picnic-like table with tin mine-camp plates, silverware and cups sitting in front of you. The waitress brings your freshly baked rolls, baked beans and coleslaw. We ordered the three-meat platter along with our beers. The two very hot platters had ribs, chicken, ham, stuffing, and baked potatoes. The entire meal was so delicious. After the meal, we were treated to the country western sounds of the McNasty Brothers. This is the perfect place to get that western BBQ cuisine.
