Good BBQ in a small town.

We love Panguitch and this restaurant has a small town feel. Good food and friendly service. Big portions. Filled us all up.

It's more of an atmosphere type place -- very Western decor and on every table there are small-press humor books to help you pass the time. The the BBQ is fine if not especially extraordinary and the staff is cheerful and hardworking. You can sit and relax and have a nice meal while visiting Panguitch.

Hard to rate food when they will not accept debit or credit cards...only cash. Our cash did not cover the high prices so we left.

After hiking in the bryce canyon, we were really hungry. So we found this restaurant on tripadvisor. We tried the ribs with their special BBQ Sauce. Delicious! And the staff was so friendly and really helpfull. They recommand us to share a full rack of ribs instead of taking two times a half rack.

I'll start by saying I hate to write negative reviews and have only done so 2 or 3 times out of over 100 reviews. Based on great reviews, we stopped for an early dinner after leaving Bryce N.P. We were the only ones in the place. The air inside smelled a bit "medicinal", not near as good as the smell... More

This was hands down the best restaurant my family and I dined in over our two week vacation in Utah. The service was friendly and fast. The smell from the smoker wafts throughout the restaurant leaving you anxiously awaiting your meal. My husband and I had ribeye steaks that were cooked to perfection, and the pinto bean side was out... More

It's been over a year since we were here. It's become our favorite place in Panguitch to eat. It helps that we like BBQ. We tried the brisket, ribs and pulled pork. All were excellent. Nice casual atmosphere. Their machine was broken the day we were here so they couldn't take credit cards.

The owner of our motel recommended to go here. The pulled pork was amazing, they have a very nice BBQ sauce you can add yourself. Brisker was a bit dry and I have had better ribs before. The local hefeweizen was very good, even though there was only 4% alcohol in it. It is Utah of course :)

Wonderful food and service. Smoke flavor is amazing! Great place to stop after a long day of hiking in Bryce Canyon National Park.
