Best Place in Escalante

Friendly service. Extremely clean. Smoked meats that you can smell on your way in. Local beef. The hamburgers are the BEST! You can taste the difference the local beef makes. (the Jalapeno Buns are a must!) Delicious homemade desserts. Breakfast, lunch or dinner: you won't be disappointed!

We ate here for breakfast when we were staying in Escalante. The facility is quite large, clean, had a modern look, and looked quite well-kept. Wanda did a great job providing friendly and efficient service, while Travis and Georgie did a great job preparing our food. I had an Eggs Benedict with sides of perfectly cooked hash browns (I asked... More

We re referred by the ranger at Escalante Petrified Forest S.P. What I nice surprise finding a place like this in such a small town. Food was excellent and the service was quick and friendly.

After a long drive from Moab, we headed down the street from our b&b for dinner. This establishment appeared fairly new and had a nice decor. Outside seating out of or under an awning was available. It is known for its BBQ, which my husband ordered. All local beef! His brisket and mashed potatoes were delicious and my rainbow trout... More

After checking with the "locals", we were referred to the Circle D Eatery for our dinner. Needless to say, we had the best food and service of all of our dinners on our 2 week journey. We returned for breakfast and again, great food and service. Wish this restaurant and employees were in our area (Minnesota)! The four of us... More

Wow, wow, wow!!! My husband on his and me on mine, we were riding our Harleys through Utah on vacation. Coming out of the mountains and an awful, horrible, no good rainstorm ;) we stopped for the night in Escalante. Upon leaving the next morning we spied the Circle D Eatery. With stepping into the restaurant we were warmly welcomed.... More

Disappointing meal! When you spend $14 on a burger with fries, you expect it to be good. No such luck. My burger was so dry it didn't make a drop of juice on the plate. It was also supposed to be 1/3 lb. It certainly didn't cover the bun. The cheese was forgotten, but I did get more than a... More

Georgie and Kayson did a fantasic job cooking our meal. There were 4 of us local ladies out to have a good lunch and just a great time together. Wanda helped us to our table and took our order. They were all so good to us and we will for sure go back to have lunch again and perhaps have... More

This restaurant is great. Wanda was fantastic and brought us everything we needed. The food was good and I am sure I could have eaten more given half the chance. The welcome from staff was nice and we were served quickly and efficiently. We happened to pass this place on our long car journey and we were really hungry -... More

Good food is one thing but great service with a smile and a laugh rounds out the whole experience. We ate breakfast there every morning!
