This restaurant looked a lot newer than what I was expecting. It was clean and updated. My husband and I each got a burger and they were absolutely delicious! Good prices too.

We could see the smoke and smell the wonderful aromas as we walked from our lodging to this cafe. The meats are gluten free, the barbecue sauce tangy, beer, wine and all the sides.

You can comfortably dine inside, in our covered patio, or on the outside patio. We are well known for our ribs, brisket, and chicken which are smoked on premise. Our beef is from Flying V ranch - a local rancher - who raises range fed cows in the Escalante area. We also have available several vegetarian offerings. Beer and wine are also available.
