Fantastic food

Hard to find, but definitely worth it! I ordered the carne asada and it was wonderful! The restaurant decor is unusual, but really cool. It's in a log cabin with a great fireplace in the center. It's small, so get there early or eat on a day other than the weekend!

Not bad but definitely not a 4 star rating. Service was good as server was very pleasant and timely. Portions were large, prices were average. Food was ok but generally bland. The "flan" was the thinnest and most tasteless flan I have had. Had a light brown color with absolutely no carmelized sugar so not certain it even qualifies as... More

Located in a campground east of Beaver - Canyon Road - the restaurant is much better than you would first expect. The little log cabin is a favorite of locals and for good reason. Their Tex-Mex dishes are will done, with fresh ingredients, good cheeses and well prepared meats. If you are a horchata fan, they have an excellent one.... More

From a Southern California native that says a lot. Truly home made food like this is rare and Maria is a master. Way off the highway and well worth the few miles let me tell you. A little confusing to get to; google maps stopped me 100 yards short of the actual driveway and look for the RV park sign!... More

We found this cute Rv park for an over night stay and decided to try the owner's restaurant for dinner, being pretty exhausted from our Moab UT drive here. First, you walk in the cute cozy place and notice the bright shiny tile floor with a nice burning fire in the center of the room. Home made chips and salsa,... More

The hotel we were staying at in Beaver recommended this place and boy were we happy. You have to head up the road to a campground area (watch for TONS of deer at night) and you will be happily rewarded for your effort. The restaurant itself can be found because of the tons of cars in the parking lot. Inside... More

Small restaurant in the middle of a campground. Only open on weekends during the winter. My family enjoyed everything we ordered next time I am in Beaver this will be my first stop. I actually think its the best food in Beaver!! MUST TRY

This restaurant is in a very small city in Utah and the restaurant is in a very small building in some kind of camp ground or trailer park. Be adventurous and stop for the best Mexican my two adult children and I have ever had. The chips and dip are to die (homemade and fresh) for and I don't even... More

The location and atmosphere here are great. The restaurant is in a campground in a beautiful setting. Fun playground for the kids. The food is not great but it filled us up. Yummy homemade salsa. Glad we stopped- it was a fun break.
