The joke is, they are the only establishment in Escalante that serves margaritas! Not to take anything away from them, they were good margaritas! The food was excellent, my wife had the pulled pork and stated it was one of the best pulled pork she's had. My son and I both had burgers and they were excellent! We also had... More

Escalante is a small place, but was glad to find a nice restaurant there. It has been a few years since we ate there, but my memory is that it was good enough to remember and I was glad to find a good place to eat in small town Escalante.

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.
