Another great eatery in Escalante! We had burgers and beer and both were perfect after a long hot day of exploring and hiking Hole in the Rock Road. Service was great and the food excellent!

We stayed at the Circle D motel and the Eatery is very convenient. Nicely decorated. Their smoked meat dishes are very tasty and in large portion. Good service and reasonably priced.

We had an excellent dinner here out on the patio. Our server (can't remember her name but she goes night hiking with her friends!) was friendly and efficient. There's a very good beer selection, a nice setting, and the best hamburger I've ever had, no exaggeration.

There is not an over-abundance of restaurants in Escalante and this one was right next door. We were thrilled! We ate on the patio, along the road. (Not a problem. There's not much traffic) The beef is all natural and they smoke their own meat. We had hamburgers, smoked beef and salad. Then came back another night for the burgers.... More

Where do I start? Great food! The deserts were great, the chocolate cake, carrot cake and the lemon meringue tart are awesome. Met the lady who makes the tarts, didn't catch her name but friendly and did an awesome job! Wanda and Scott were our favorites at the Eatery! Always had a smile, offering suggestions when not sure what exactly... More

We had two meals here over the course a few days and though we do not eat a lot of red meat, the hamburgers, steaks and brisket have us wanting to return to have more!

After a day of crawling though slot canyons, nothing is better than a big, juicy, cooked to order burger from Circle D! They also have BBQ and my only complaint is that they sliced the brisket *with* the grain instead of across it, but that could have been just a one time accident. But the burgers are seriously top-notch! I'll... More

We stayed at the motel next door one night and tried the Circle D restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised by the friendly service, varied menu, good food and general atmosphere. The next week we rented a small house and continued to eat at the circle D every night of our stay in Escalante. We were never disappointed.

Plenty of good coffee and good prices make this a great choice for breakfast. Service might have been a bit slow to get moving, but once it was going it was fine.

We stayed at the motel and walked to the restaurant. It was moderately busy. We sat at a high table next to a window and watched a beautiful sunset. The chili cheeseburger was excellent - nice bun and perfectly (medium) cooked burger.
