What you see above are the only food concessions within the Carlsbad Caverns. This is indeed underground, in one of the caves, but not too far down. It's a rest area, a place where tours groups can re-form, and where hungry folks can grab a quick (overpriced and barely edible) bite before descending further. And although there are a few run-of-the-mill McDonald's franchises above the ground in the towns near the National Park, there is not one down here.
But that's not to say that back in the 1970s there wasn't a McD's down here. It just couldn't have been any larger than a small kiosk, perhaps selling hamburgers and soft drinks. We highly doubt it however; anyone got a yellowed postcard to prove it once and for all?
