Big E Grand Canyon Steakhouse & Saloon
Welcome to the Big E!
The Big E is the Grand Canyon dining spot to enjoy great food.
Elling “Big E” Halvorson
Elling Halvorson came to the Grand Canyon in 1963 with a mammoth job of constructing the pipeline that brings water to the South Rim from the depths of the Inner Gorge. It was a monumental task which required a fleet of helicopters and creative engineering. Elling and his wife Barbara fell in love with the canyon. Their family has provided community leadership with a commitment to creating the highest quality tourism experiences in the world. That commitment is evidenced in the Best Western Squire Inn, Papillon Helicopters, Grand Canyon Helicopters, Grand Canyon Airlines, and now the Big E Steakhouse & Saloon.
The BEST Steaks in Arizona!
