Small, noisy and mediocre food. I don't like the concept either of one person taking care of even the 20 or so that can eat here. Greasy fork place.

We have eaten at other One Man Band restaurants in Utah and have always loved them. We drove past a Polar Queen that had a ton of cars to go to One Man Band.. We visited at 1:00 p.m. and at first we thought it was closed and had to go check because it looked dark from the outside and... More

How can you resist stopping at a place called One Man bBnd? Food was good and quick and ordering it is half the fun. There is a speaker system at each table you use to order and the cook signals back when it is ready for you to pick it up at a window. Seating is limited but we didn't... More

A great gathering spot. One person does everything, orders, cooking, and cleans up. They cook things the way you want them cooked. They have a good menu with lots of choices. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

My wife and I stopped here during a road trip, looking for something different than the usual fast-food national chains. I was looking for a nice healthy salad, and ordered the grilled chicken salad from the menu, where this dish had a heart-healthy icon next to it. What I got was a salad consisting of some iceberg lettuce, some bits... More

Stopped for a cup of coffee, served ourselves and spent almost $4 for two cusps out of a pressure pot. To eat you use a phone at your table and when your food is ready a light lights up. I guess they call it One Man Band because one person can run the place. We would not go back.

The only reason my husband and I went there is because we had a two for one coupon. We got burgers and they were good, but not the greatest thing I ever ate or anything. They do have a good selection of burgers, and some are better than others. It is rather strange though that they only have one person... More

I was staying in Payson and was looking for something other than a fast food chain and a dinner house. I walked in to find a modified fast food place. I was amazed that only one person staffed the entire place. I ordered by the phone at the table, which reminded me of the Utah chain Training Table. I ordered... More

We always stop here to eat when we are in Nephi visiting family. This is such a cool place to eat. All the food is prepared by one guy! He takes your order over the phone at your table, prepares your order and cashes you out when you've finished. Everything is fresh made right where you can watch if you... More

The cook has been there 13 years. That's says something. It's nothing elaborate. The food is simple but consistently good. When I want a rare steak that's exactly what I get.
