The food was OK, not great (burger and fries). Burger was over charred, fries were good. Main complaint was method of handling Covid restrictions, which didn't make sense and relied only on the "magic goo" hand sanitizer that was required when entering. This was very...sticky glop from a huge jug; no way of knowing if it was one of the hundreds of identified dangerous sanitizers identified during the pandemic. There were no napkins on the table, so no way to wipe it off before eating. After the glop, there was no special attention given to sanitation. Servers wore masks and gloves, but didn't change gloves even though they were touching surfaces everywhere that could have been contaminated. Menus were regular plastic menus, not sanitized between customers. Full-sized condiment bottles and salt/pepper shakers were on the table, not sanitized between customers. Tables were simply wiped with a wet rag between customers; bottles and chair backs (all touched by customers) were not wiped. Salad bar was self serve with only mask required. We're not overly scared about Covid, but did resent being forced to use the magic goo in order to eat, especially since we were not provided napkins without asking. Once back in our room, we washed our still slimy hands and it took a bit of soap to stop the slime Ugh.More

Not a chain and food for lunch and dinner-way good Conservative outside but very clean and they sanitize hands before you go in.Masks at salad bar-fresh everything The best homestyle chicken fried steak with all the fixings. Known for Navaho tacos and man they were...good. Vegetarian menu also Available Burgers looked huge with those thick fries We will go back to this surprise diner whenever going through Keep up the good work!!!More

Didn't quite know what to expect since we were told it was the only sitdown restaurant in town open due to COVID, but wow, were we surprised. Who would have thought that the little town of Blanding would have Catfish and Halibut that were perfectly...cooked! Food was awesome, and the salad bar had a terrific variety and followed all protocols...they even had you put on gloves before you served yourself and disposed of them at the end of the salad bar. Ingenious! Wait staff was friendly, and again, food was awesome! We would go our of our way to stop here again!More

The service here was wonderful. Our waitress was attentive, happy and kind. The appetizer was decent. The cheese sticks and jalapeno peppers were good but the chicken wings were super dry. The biscuits and jam were good, the biscuit was dense and buttery. The rib...eye steak was a little tougher than what you would expect from a good piece of rib eye. The onion rings were amazing! The Navajo taco was really good. Over all not a bad experience but a little pricey for the food to have had the problems it did.More

GREAT place to eat in this DRY town! We were a group of 25+ on a HOG ride and we were treated to a DELICIOUS DINNER AND WONDERFUL hospitality. Wife enjoyed her first INDIAN taco and I had a rib eye. FRESH biscuits were soooo...good. We made arrangements for owner to do breakfast and she out did herself! Bacon,eggs and French toast were great! OJ and Coffee for $10 also!More

There is not much to choose from in Blanding, Utah. However, we ask a local and they confirmed we would not be disappointed. This is a good restaurant but it is very casual. The people are interested in taking care of the customer. We actually...returned the next night to enjoy it again.More

I don't believe so but I would call the restaurant to see if that changes by the season.

I am vegetarian (not vegan), as was another member of our party, and there were several options available for us (from familiar to adventurous). Also, during our visit the staff were very friendly and willing to answer... More
