We were soo disappointed! The people who run the place are awesome cooks but whoever they hire doesn't have a clue! Some of the worst service and food I have ever had!!!!

We had dinner here and all of us had burgers. The were very tasty, nicely grilled, with fries and salad. The waitress was friendly, service was fast. We liked the interior of the place, with wooden tables. Certainly recommendable with moderate prices (usd 11 for a classic burger with cheese).

We stopped for dinner after a long hike and were very happy with our food. All of the vegetables were fresh and local. Even the jalapeño poppers were fresh made each day.

We came because a sign told us something about the best margaritas in town - it didn't lie! We enjoyed the nice atmosphere, great music and very good burgers! We can highly recommend this place!

After a day of trekking, we tried, and then enjoyed, the announced margaritas, "best in the town" (I cannot say but they were really good, we had a couple), and tapas. The jalapeños with bacon were great, the shrimp tempura crispy and tasty.,

We tried something different our last night in Escalante. After a great hike in Capiol Reef National Park, we needed a good burger and Cowboy Blues served it up. The fries were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

Stopped by one evening. The place was not busy. My husband ate the steak and o had the burrito. Both were good. The dinner salad served was great. My burrito was so big and could be shared. They serve liquor and beer.

Basic accommodation but really good service and excellent food. Beer is good and not expensive. The wife had a couple of blue margaritas, which seemed to please her. My rib-eye steak was perfect. Salad was really crisp and freshly made. Not a jacket and tie venue, but great when you're in your jeans and want a no nonsense dinner. Highly... More

Have been at this place before and the food was O.K. Nothing special. So we decided to go for a burger....We ordered medium, it came rare, we sent it back to the kitchen. I guess the cook tried not hard enough, mine was stil raw, my husbands a bit better. How difficult can it be, cook a burger if you... More

Funky place, but we enjoyed the Wild West, cowboy character. The menu is fairly limited but reasonable. The night we stopped in they had live music. This is not a tourist driven town, but if you want a more authentic experience away from the parks and the crowds, give escalante a try!
