Description: Chuckwagon Cookout offers much more than simply the best Cowboy Grub in Southern Utah. Before we serve up our chuckwagon, finger lickin' good, dutchoven dinner and cowboy coffee, it's casting time. Lights, camera, and action, for another episode of... ​ "How the West was Lost" Every evening before a great chuckwagon dinner, Cowboy wranglers shoot another episode of their authentic western movie. The movie sets await; a saloon, a covered wagon and a livery stable. The customers are ready and waiting for tonight's new cast. So don't be bashful. If you've ever had a hankering to star in a western movie, now's your chance! We'll be looking for actors and actresses with true grit and when it's a wrap, you'll never forget the best western evening of your life. Yeee-haaa, come 'n git it!

Visited here with a tour, around 45 of us in all. They were expecting us and we paid 17 dollars each (not the 15 stated on the website?!). We are sure it would have been more fun if we had done the dressing up as soon as we arrived, but we sat in a drab canteen room for over half... More

I'm sorry the Valient's didn't have a good experience at our Chuckwagon. Sometimes when we get very busy, there is a wait but we always strive to provide an entertaining time for all of our guests. This is an all you can eat buffet where the customer serves up all items except the beef - so if portions were skimpy... More

Chuck wagon cookouts put on a western cookout and "movie shoot" for our bus group of 30. It was great fun. They dressed us up as pioneers, cowboys, saloon girls, gamblers, Indians, cavalry, and even coyotes. It was hilarious. Then we had the chuck wagon dinner, which was quite good. If you're looking for 5 star dining in a romantic... More

As an english man visiting the south west of America I was looking for meat, covered in cheese and BBQ sauce while a man in a cowboy hat sung songs with people line dancing.. We found it here. When the hardest question to answer in brisket or ribs, you know you're in the right place.

I had a Breakfast and a Dinner catered by Chuckwagon Cookouts. Breakfast was good but dinner was better. We were eating outdoors on a windy day--rather challenging!

We had a wonderful time there, thank you Tony and family. My group enjoyed the diner and the western adventure with you. Food is perfect: simple, home made and super delicious. Thank you for the superb experience!

I went to this restaurant with a " Road Scholar" group. We were told at the restaurant that many Western movies were filmed in Kanab and there were old props on display. Also we staged a Western scene ourselves, with Indians, Bar Maids, a good guy with a white hat and the bad guy with the black hat. It was... More
