This is an amusing little barbecue joint across the street from the Parry lodge and is owned by the new owner of the Parry lodge. The food selection is quite limited, serving pulled pork and turkey with side dishes such as cole slaw and potato salad. The pulled pork is actually quite good as is the potato salad. There is...

Pleasant fake old west setting with glassfiber horses and an old pioneer cart. Long waiting line to order and be served by a single man that takes out the BBQ cold meat from a locker and unwrap it before cutting large lumps. Meat tastes as boiled, not BBQed. Some sides and bread not available at our arrival.

Definitely a tourist trap but there's not too many places to choose from in kanab. Has the potential to be slammed by tour buses but when we were there on a Saturday night it was fine. Great place to have a beer, listen to live country music and relax. I didn't try the food, because I'm a BBQ snob.

Stayed across the street so we tried this place. Basic BBQ food, order at counter, take tray to table. Very friendly staff and welcoming. Shares space with a bar so we got drinks from there. Thoroughly enjoyed the singing cowboy that sang all country favorites. Wonderful soulful voice. Nice, easy, casual experience.

We were hoping for barbecue and found Calvin T's. The place looked a bit suspect because of the outside. It turned out to be just fine....the food was very good and the service although you pretty much serve yourself was good. The interesting things were the people you cold not have found nicer people. They were a husband and wife...the... More

Food was good BBQ but not a large selection. Bar service was also available but you had to purchase bar drinks separately from your meal.

We shopped in the store and made our way to the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The ribs were tender and tasteful. The coleslaw was fresh and juicy. The appletart and ice cream was yummy. They also had a nice entertainer that evening that did a great job.

This is an interesting place. There is indoor seating as well as outside. The outside area is set up like an old-west style main street movie set. The food was good. We had brisket which was delicious, along with a large helping of coleslaw which was very good. Beans which at first appearance look watery compared to most traditional baked... More
