Good food, similar to fast food type of dining

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.

Amazing what passes for BBQ in some places. Just because this is "out west" don't take it seriously. First thing wrong is they don't have their slabs of Q out on the counter where they can carve it for you. It is pre-cut and dry and pricey. You go down a line cafeteria style and someone serves you from behind.... More

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

We received a friendly service throughout including a taste of the dishes before deciding to eat here. The food was Basic but tasty and well cooked and the venue interesting. There was just something about this place that didn't quite make me feel comfortable - a bit Stepford Wives somehow.

Great friendly staff, amazing food. I have a severe wheat allergy and it was easy for them to accommodate to that. We stayed in Kanab for a couple of days, and ate here twice cause the food was so good. Highly recommended.

We fancied some BBQ one evening and locals suggested Calvin T's. Being somewhat early the place was quiet however, we selected one of the set "house" BBQ dishes together with a couple of Margaritas and tucked in. Both were good although next time I'd probably go for a larger portion. It's unusual to find European size portions in America, but... More

I've eaten here a couple of times and really try to like it but it's missing something. The atmosphere is great and the servers extremely friendly but I find the food average at best. I may be a little tainted because I lived in Austin, TX for many years and had access to great BBQ. Calvin T's tries to get... More

We went here for Dinner. The place was a lot of fun. They had a lot of old west props to have pictures takens with. I enjoyed watching the kids. The dinner was awesome. The people there were very friendly and helpful. The night we went they had live entertainment. I enjoyed just sitting there and relaxing.

Somebody has obviously spent a lot of time and money into trying to give this restaurant that old west feel. The courtyard is full of exhibits and an attempt at creating a little humour e.g. the old cowboy in the toilet. Full credit to the management for having live singers on stage. A costly expense given the small audience. The... More
