We were in Hanksville in the "off-season". This was the only place open for breakfast. I ordered pancakes which were fine. The other person in my party ordered the steak and eggs. The piece of meat was horrible. Tough and absolutely coated in pepper. Stick with basics and you will probably not be disappointed.

We arrived at Blondie's, very hungry after a long trip, on November 21st. They cooked us up really yummy steaks and gave us really good friendly service. We will definitely eat there again if we make it back to Hanksville, UT. (We live in Canada)

For a quaint place literally in the middle of the desert, they sure delivered on quality! The food was nice (usual sandwich and burger selection), but their milkshakes are what make it a must! I ordered a small mint shake and got a huge overflowing cup that could easily pass as an extra large anywhere else! (Given that it was... More

Once you got used to the idea that you need to order your food from the counter, I found the food to be well prepared and reasonably priced. We had a hamburger for lunch and then returned for breakfast the following morning; of the two meals, that is the one I most preferred. The staff are friendly, welcoming and efficient,... More

Cookies are delicious and try the homemade Reese bites. I have to return for the waffle cookies they were sold out. The young man working that day was friendly and helpful.

Stopped at Blondie's while passing thru Hanksville at lunch time. Great service with a smile and old fashioned cafe food. Simple and old fashioned is what made this so memorable a lunch.

Have passed by this place many times on the way to Bullfrog, and this time we gave it a try, and we are glad we did! We had the Blondies Special, Cheese Burger (they even had a Gluten Free bun for me!), Fries (piled so high I could not finish them and a drink for $7.99, but we each upgraded... More

Should have known this would be "just okay". Only 2 cars parked outside and one car belonged to the cooks husband who was in to visit so service was non existent. We ordered, coffee, cocoa and breakfast at the counter then sat down. No one told us we needed to serve ourselves. Not a problem, just tell me. The food... More

Been here 2X in 15 years; both times were excellent. I'd come more often if I didn't live about 2,000 miles away. Don't let the fading sign above the place fool you; this is as genuine as its name. I had a burger, fries, and a milkshake that clearly arose above the rim of the cup by several inches. All... More
