    Duke's Slickrock Grill: Egg-static at Duke's

    by goodfish Updated Nov 13, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our road trips between Torrey and Moab REQUIRE stopping for a howdy in Hanksville, and we hit the road early to land in here for breakfast. This was the only place in town we didn’t eat at on the last trip - took one look and walked out - but I'm happy to say that it’s been scrubbed, shined, and is now under the same ownership/management as the excellent Whispering Sands motel and Stan’s Burger Shack (see my reviews).

    "Dawn Riders" (2 eggs, hash browns and toast) and a side of sausage for The Husband plus too many cups of good coffee left us stuffed until suppertime, and we had fun catching up with the local news when the waitstaff wasn’t busy (sadly, Eight-finger Wayne had moved away).

    Great food for a reasonable price, and just like the rest of Hanksville, the friendliest folks you’ll ever want to meet.

    Ladies, the restroom is AWESOME.

    They’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and are the only place in Hanskville that serves any alcohol (beer and wine only). Sandwiches, salads and entrees (they smoke their own meat!) from 11 AM - close, 7 days a week. Yep, it’s a keeper!

    I'm not noting a PP price as there's a big swing between dinner entrees and breakfast. See a menu here:

    Blondies: Now a better Blondies

    by goodfish Updated Oct 22, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'm updating this review as I see they've updated their interior: one of the few objections we had to this one. But aside from that, the food was just fine and the counter staff was Hanksville-cheerful. The menu is similar to Stan's - sandwiches, salads, soup and a few entrees - and prices won't break the bank either. We both had a sammie - BLT for me, and hot ham-and-cheese for The Husband - and sides of fries. Yes, it IS possible to mess up a BLT but mine was made to perfection with crisp bacon and lettuce and fresh tomato on toasted white. We didn't try the shakes but they're rumored to be scrumptious.

    This is also a popular stop with road-trippers to Lake Powell, and it gets very decent reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. It's not big on fancy but just fine for a couple of tired and hungry hikers.

    Doesn't look like this anymore! See the website!

    Stan's Burger Shak: Fans of Stan's

    by goodfish Updated Oct 22, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stan's was our winner for the best place to full a tummy in a hurry in Hanksville. It's nothing fancy - a fast-food type outlet attached to the Chevron station - but clean, tidy, friendly and serving area hikers and road-trippers since 1983. This is also where you'll have your complimentary continental breakfast every morning if you're staying next door at Whispering Sands; you'll get a 10% discount on other meals here with your room key.

    The menu runs to reasonably priced burgers and sammies - with a few salads and baskets thrown in - and great shakes in a whole bunch of flavors. My chicken wrap was yummy and generous, and The Husband's burger hit the spot as well. The shakes are eat-with-a-spoon thick: we called ours "dinner" one night after a wet and strenuous hike had us too exhausted to manage anything else.

    Stan's appears to be a regular stop for boaters traveling to-and-from Lake Powell. No website but they do have a Facebook page: check it for seasonal opening as it looks like they close down for a couple of the winter months.

    Update: family who stopped in recently tell me it's still good!

    Red Rock Restaurant: Small town America at its best

    by WinInZion Written May 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hanksville is a very small town and only has three places to eat. We had one breakfast and two dinners here. The food was good but nothing special. Breakfast is easy and they did a fine job.

    Dinner was OK but they were out of one thing or another. We had a young waitress who seemed new at her job, this didn't help things.

    I'd go back but most likely would try Blondies for dinner, first.

    Blondies: Pretty darn good!

    by WinInZion Written May 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Blondies is located right in the middle of town. Well, everything is in the middle of town. We went for breakfast and it was very good. We got in just before a rush of peoplre but it seemed they were doing a good job of keeping up.

    Next time in the area we'll try them in the evening.

    Favorite Dish: I had French Toast, my wife had bacon and eggs. Both were more than good.

    Diner Steakhouse: The only place in town

    by RAINBOWWINGS Written Aug 4, 2007

    With no other choice we stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Nice cosy setting, friendly family staff and lots of odd little knick-knacks to look at whilst waiting for your meal.

    Favorite Dish: Just regualr, but big, burgers, fries or pork chops...but all good food just like mamma makes.

    Steak House Cosy diner
