“Don't Miss the Burger at the Trailhead Cafe!”
Reviewed August 21, 2006

During our travels through Utah, we were driving through Escalante on a Sunday. It was lunch time and we were very hungry. Not much appeared to be open on a Sunday in Escalante so we stopped in one of the only open places that we could find....The Trailhead Cafe and Grill.

This is a very small place to get lunch. They have outside seating and a couple of tables inside. The outside was completely filled and we got the last table inside. This is not a large restaurant and they were really behind on the orders. I was impressed with their honesty. Every time a new customer arrived, they warned them of the wait.

We spent our time looking through the Utah books and magazines that were scattered throughout the dining area and planning our next stop. When our food arrived, the burgers were wonderful and well worth the wait. Honestly, I was just expecting a basic burger. The burgers came to us hot off of the outdoor grill and had fresh herbs flavoring the meat.

They have other items on their small menu but I would highly recommend the burger if you get the opportunity to stop by this little gem of a restaurant!
