BLACK CANYON CITY, Ariz. - Take a drive for the perfect piece of pie! For this edition of Let's Go Places in Arizona, we traveled to Black Canyon City, home of Rock Springs Cafe, which is an Arizona treasure.
This area got its name in the 1800s. The Rock was known as a military camp and a watering hole for travelers on the Black Canyon Trail.
Next year marks 100 years of Rock Springs' famous pies.
If you’re traveling on your own road trip, this is the perfect stop to fill up your tank and your stomach. They have home-style breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there is something for everyone.
Stay for the great atmosphere, and of course, their legendary pies: banana pie, peach crumb, Jack Daniels pecan, and their cherry and apple are probably the best you can get.
Try a slice “a la mode” or take home a whole one! There’s a reason they sell more pie than any other place in Arizona.
And if you can’t make the trip, don’t worry! You can always get their delicious pie delivered.
