This is a "drive through" that has outside picnic tables to eat at. It might just be the only such restaurant in town. Good: buffalo burger, fries Cons(?): not fast, but definately made fresh for you. I went there twice in two days.

We ate here twice whilst touring the area 2nd week of October. The burgers were nice and we enjoyed sharing a beer with 3 Utah folk camping in the area. Good food and great memories. Would recommend to hungry hikers!

This is a great place to stop for a good burger selection and shakes. You can smell them cooking blocks away to make you hungry and the owners are great.

We went here after walking out of Circle D Eatery because we could not get waited on. That was a very good decision because we had an excellent burger and fries for a reasonable price. The only downside was the fries were overly salty

There aren't many places in the Escalante area and some we found were closed, but this was a nice find. The Patty could have been a little thicker.

Was a welcome oasis after a hard hike through Escalante Petrified Forest State Park. Enjoyed the burgers and fires and the kids loved the shakes. Very friendly owner was manning the grill. Reasonably priced for a small establishment.
