Understanding that Hanksville is a tiny oasis in the middle of some very inhospitable country, with many, many miles until the next outposts of civilization, it nevertheless offers some genuine pleasantries. Stan's Burger Shack offers a great "Stans burger" that, with the jalapeno option, is a savory combination of savory and sweet. I plan to have another next year on... More

My wife had the fish & chips. The fish was so overcooked that they were dark brown. She couldn't eat them. I had the chicken tenders which weren't anything special but at least weren't overcooked.

Above average fast food place. The burgers are made with free-range beef. Nothing fancy, hard seat booths, cute sayings on the walls, very friendly service. The milkshakes are outstanding! Like a blizzard, you have to eat it with a spoon. You won't go wrong stopping here. It is located at the gas station on the main road.

I have had a milkshake from Stan's on three separate occasions. They are awesome! However, their shakes are more like a blizzard. You have to eat them with a spoon. They have a small and a large. The large is super huge! I could not eat all of it. Whichever size you get the shake is sticking about two inches... More

Hardshell seat booths ala fast food, but comfortable. Clean, open and well-lighted. Big. The burgers are better than typical fast food but not gourmet. The fries are excellent -- the crispy outside soft inside type. The milkshakes taste good and are heavy: a small one will be adequate for most humans. Nice, surprisingly well stocked store next door. For a... More

My husband and I ordered hamburgers with cheese. We expected to have an ordinary hamburger. After our first bite we knew there was something special about this place. They were the best hamburgers we've ever had. When we talked to one of the employees about it, she informed us that it was local, free-range beef. Well, there is a lot... More

Stopped here on our way home from Moab - middle of nowhere, but good food at good prices. Cajun fries were very good and really liked my burger, especially for such a tiny town. Nice that it was open on a Sunday as well. Bathrooms were clean and convenience station connected was nice too. Service wasn't the friendliest ever but... More

What a unique place Duke and Jessica have developed on the outskirts of tiny Hanksville. This place is worth the stop if you are passing through, or staying at the nearby Whispering Sands Motel. The service is great, the staff is happy and friendly and full of advice if you ask, and the attached mini general store is convenient. Stopping... More

We stop at Stan's burger shack every time we head home from Lake Powell. The food is good. The shakes are even better! It is a lot of food. You can definitely share a shake!
