Good selection of smoked entrees. Chicken was a but dry but had a nice flavor. The brisket was fantastic. Very reasonably priced.

I bring my Photo Workshops to this location and we enjoyed many meals over 5 days. We had a large group but the staff handled us without any issues. Great place

Had dinner with my family here. Decent burgers, OK beer list. Service was prompt and friendly (Johnny). Wide variety of burgers and sandwiches. Would definitely recommend for a casual dinner.

Friendly service and delicious food. What’s not to love? I had the Reubens and fries and the only downer was finishing! Every mouthful was a guilty pleasure! My husband who’s LCHF enjoyed his bun-less burger and salad.

Good variety on menu. Brisket is super. Great pasta salad and unique grilled chicken on brioche bun.

Food was good. Had to wait for a table, but not too long. Wait for food after ordering was long. Staff was good. Overall, a good experience.

We run into that place for a dinner. This place was so packed but we still got a friendly service and attention. The food was very good. It’s the place to go when you don’t want to eat pizza in Escalante.

We came from Florida to do the slot canyons. All the locals say that the food is great. The staff was friendly to us when we walked in. The location is in a great spot that is close to hotels. Very easy to walk to

They serve great burgers with fabulous fries. Recommend when you drive Hwy 12 to or from Bryce Canyon.

I did not care for the barbecued chicken plate that I ordered, but I think it's just a matter of a difference in barbecue sauce from what I'm used to. The sides were great - yummy fresh green beans. Fun place with great pictures on...More

The Circle D Eatery and the adjacent Circle D Motel is independently owned and operated. We offer casual dining of American cuisine. You can comfortably dine inside, in our covered patio, or on the outside patio. We are well known for our ribs, brisket, and chicken which are smoked on premise. Our beef is from Flying V ranch - a local rancher - who raises range fed cows in the Escalante area. We also have available several vegetarian offerings. Beer and wine are also available.
