We drove from Panguich, Escalante, Capitol Reef on our way to Monument Valley/Kayenta. This restaurant had excellent burgers in great buns, and fries. If on the same road, it's worth to try them.

We were traveling in Utah and found Stan's out in the middle of nowhere. They serve large and tasty burger. The attached gift shop sells beer which is not always easy to find in Utah.

As you might imagine, there wasn't a great deal of choice in Hanksville in November, but as this place was adjacent to where we were staying, we thought we would give it a go; the food was dreadful. I would have happily awarded this just 1 star, but in fairness the staff were friendly and helpful. We ordered the fish... More

This place was perfect after a long day of hiking in the canyons. It doesn't look like much from the outside but don't let that fool you. I ordered a burger, fries and a huge cherry shake for $10. The burger was big, made just the way I wanted. The fries were perfectly nice and crispy. The cherry shake was... More

agreed it's the 'only show in town'. It is the stop our friends take on the way to Lake Powell. Two years in a row - I cannot recommend the shakes! not enough flavor, not well-mixed enough (last year was Mango - little hard chunks of flavorless something; this year it was chocolate, not enough syrup to taste like anything...

With our hotel room, we got free breakfast at Stan's. The options were cereal, toast, juice and coffee. That was it. The woman behind the counter was surly. Every time someone asked for something, "Where are the napkins?" She yelled at them.

This was a recommended stop for lunch on our itinerary probably and principally because it is the only show in town within 30 or miles in any direction! Adequate burgers - I had a buffalo burger and was not particularly impressed - good fries and below par onion rings! There were other choices on the menu and other folks chose... More
