While this isn't the fanciest place, nor do they have tons of food options, they have great basic items with a home cooked flavor. The atmosphere is friendly and cozy with local western decor. The night we stumbled upon this place, we met the very welcoming owner and there was a local guitar player setting the mood with live country... More

Beautiful rustic setting. Food was good, The background music was a bit annoying though. Can't say much else.

We ate at this restaurant at the recommendation of our motel in Escalante. She said a newer restaurant had a better rating but the locals prefer Cowboy Blues over that restaurant. We looked at the menu of that other restaurant, but it did not appeal to us so we went across the street to Cowboy Blues. The waitress was friendly... More

We happened upon this gem during a road trip in 2009. Great food, friendly service and townsfolk. I had a quesadilla as big as my head with lots of fixins. I hope we get back out that way one day and we will definitely stop back in :)

The food was good here but the waiter is arrogant. We will not go back. The burgers and pulled pork are very good as are the fries. They are big enough for a dinner meal especially with fries and a salad or an appetizer. hey will not get repeat customers until they change waiters. Not a fancy place thats for... More

Utah seems filled to the brims with underpaid over worked or certainly overwhelmed waitresses....but in 50 odd yrs of eating out...this gal wins the shrug oh well prize! 'Dunno' with a smile was the number one answer used to every from ingredients, to timing, to entertainment. Ordered the smoked chicken but 'it wasn't cooked yet'....about a hour later upon leaving...

Stayed in Escalante for two days and while there stopped in Cowboy Blues for dinner. My husband and I had the ribeye steak that was prepared as ordered and was delicious. Chocolate brownie with ice cream to top it off. Nice local place, with good service. A very nice meal. Price can vary from moderate to high. It you're in... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we are glad they did. A neat little restaurant with an upbeat décor with music. They have a nice range of items on the menu to choose and the prices range on what you want. I had a steak and my wife ordered the chicken. Both dishes were good. Patrick was our waiter who... More

A cut above the average small town restaurant with very well prepared meals. The flat iron steak was delicious and the vegetables were cooked just right (meaning cooked until they were just done and served fresh). Service was friendly and professional.

Enjoyed a night with a little live entertainment and a good Margaurita. Folks in our party enjoyed Mexican fare and I had a good Caesar Salad. The place is well-lit and friendly- full of locals and travelers alike.
