  • Smitty's Steak House: Double "Yuck"!!

    by straightshooter Written Nov 20, 2009

    Ate here last night with my traveling buddy.
    We've both traveled extensively across the US. Ate at hundreds of cafe's and joints as well as restaurants and fast food.

    I can honestly say...this is the worse food I've had in my years of traveling.
    Truly terrible...I had the house special. The so called "local favorite", chicken fried steak.

    It was a plasticky pounded slab of "wanky" tasting meat. Served with potatoe buds, generic canned gravy and equally generic canned green beans.
    Also a homemade dinner roll?? How could one possibly make a terrible "home made" dinner roll.

    Atmosphere lousy.

    As far as the service, the elderly woman who served us was tolerable.
    But the other two service girls were very rude, openly gossiping about town's people and diners while snickering, giggling, whispering and rolling their eyes with impatience when they were called on to do their jobs?

    A cook came out at one point and the entire staff, including elderly tolerable waitress began a viscious gossiping session complete with the foul gutter mouth language, right there on the restaurant floor.

    To top that off, the price on the menu was substantially higher than the price advertised throughout town in various coupon books and handouts.

    Terrible!

    Favorite Dish: Nada!

    The meals were of burgers and Mexican and chips. Most prices looked to be $6-9 range and basic fare menu. A beer was only $3 for 16 oz

    Favorite Dish: I did not try any after seeing the place and wondered the freshness of foods.

    Sunset Grill: Meal on the Mount

    by BruceDunning Written Oct 11, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place has a lot of history as much as serving food today. The place was the home of Charles Steen, who got rich finding uranium for the Government when it was needed in 1950's. He built this monument on top of the hill just north of town. His find changed to whole town that then got an influx of people to get rich like Charles who ended up about $60 million rich. Sold as a restaurant after the family did not want it, today it claims to be the best in town. I did not try it, but took pictures so you could find it and do so.

    Favorite Dish: Who knows-I would have picked the Prime rib for $19. Prices are filet mignon for $24, salmon $18, shrimp scampi for $19.

    Rio Sports BAr & Grill: BAr with Food

    by BruceDunning Written Oct 11, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Row of patrons enjoying the game day

    They serve sandwiches and Mexican foods. The Mex ranged $7-9 for most meals. SAndwiches were 1/3 burger $5.50 and ranged up to $6.50. That is reasonable. Philly cheese was $6.
    Locals hang out here for a beer and food.

    Favorite Dish: Philly cheese steak with fries was a good basic and tasty meal coming form a bar served by a tattoed guy with big rings in his ears. That was the weird part.

    Jailhouse Cafe: Go to Jail-Do Not pass GAs

    Colorful Sign to Avoid

    The food was at best average. Only open for breakfast and supposed to be at 8AM. So tell me where were they at 8:10 when I was there and had to wait-or not next time. The prices were outrageous for what you get. My meal was $8 without the bacon. A bowl of cereal was
    $7. Specials for the deluxe ran $11-and this is not dinner, but breakfast. Who ever herd of those prices other than New York?? NOt me. It stinks

    Favorite Dish: Two eggs and potato fries and toast. It was just basic food-nothing special

    Milt's Stop & Eat Drive-In: Old FAshioned Drive-In

    by BruceDunning Written Oct 11, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Milt-nothing has changed

    It really is not fast food since it takes 5-10 minutes to prepare most of the food ordered. But the wait is worth it. The single 1/4 lb burger was $ and 1/2 loaded $6. Hot dogs seemed to be the specials for people and all type for $3-5. SAndwiches are $6. The ice cream and cones and malts are the real draw. Cone is $12.0 and a malt $3.50

    Favorite Dish: The burger and the malt were both what I wanted and it tasted good going down.

    Moab Diner: Diner Theme in Mid-town

    Side entrance view

    I think the serve just average food. Based on appearances of patrons, and the looks on faces, they got food, but nothing to brag about. The service and waiters and managers are all too plentiful and not paying attention to the needs on the floor to serve customers. Not that it was bad, but I expected more attentive service in the small community and a diner is supposed to be fast, prompt and friendly. Well they need training.
    Breakfast run $6-7; lunch $6-7 and dinners $7-15 with the 10 oz steak being the top end. Most dinners are $9-10

    Favorite Dish: Since I only had one visit, the best I got was liver and onions. Yeh-so-I had to try it since it had been maybe a decade to have a liver plate. It still is dry and tasteless for the most part, but I feel more healthy. Price was the best part for $7 and the tea $2.

    The steaks run range in cost of $26 for 24 oz porterhouse to $13 for 10 oz sirloin. They also have chicken fired steak for $8 ad ham steak the same price. The meal came with salad and potato of choice. Been in business for 30 years. I guess it is affiliated with the next door motel since ethey are connected.

    Favorite Dish: The rib eye steak was tender and done right. It cost $117 for a 12 oz portion. They steaks looked good and the rest of the meals around appeared good.

    Corner entrance to restaurant

    It seemed good to me for what I had. The others around me seemd pleased to be eating their meals.

    Favorite Dish: Jug Handle Arch is not eating rock, but a piece of tilapia fish. It was a fair sized portion and got fires with it. Price was $11. Most entree prices range $11-21. Fish, shrimp, steaks, fried chicken, roast beef and pork are the mainstays. In addition they have salads of 6-8 varieties. and sandwiches $9-12 (pricey)

    Moab Brewery: The best service in town...

    by madmax79 Written Jul 30, 2009

    I tried to eat at several restaruants but found that good service was a scarce commodity in Moab. Courtney and Heather were both very attentive and friendly bartheders. I will definitely go back there on my next trip to Moab.

    If you are from the flatlands, the beers will definitely get to you at this altitude but they are delicious!

    Favorite Dish: The ribs and the rueben are great!

  • Eddie McStiff's: Disappointing food - High Price

    by dogspa Written Mar 15, 2009

    We were hoping for a nice brew-pub atmosphere, but instead we got a high priced rip-off of a meal. If you like hard and crunchy steamed rice, rubbery bbq ribs, soggy cole slaw, and pasty white tasteless chicken, you found the right place. The service was below average and the food was very disappointing! The beer selection, wine selection and bar choices were limited. This is a high profile eating establishment in Moab but be warned - the only thing great about this place is their prices! Very expensive - poor quality food.

    Favorite Dish: Nothing! Run away from this place!

    Miguel's Baja Grill: Fantastic, Fresh Mexican Cuisine

    by KiKitC Written Nov 14, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On Main Street in downtown Moab, this charming little restaurant may be overlooked. Take another glance...and sit a spell.

    I've found in my travels that often times, the smallest packages offer the largest tastes! Miguel's is no different. The food is undeniably fresh, and cooked perfectly.

    Certainly the best Mexican food we had on our Westward trip.

    Favorite Dish: We had to start with one of the Margaritas (with your choice of tequilas). I tried one of my favorites...a chicken fajita (marvelous). My husband had a seafood burrito that was practically the size of a football!

    Highly recommended. Open at 5:00 pm everyday for dinner.

    Branding Iron Steakhouse: Rollin', rollin' rollin'

    Branding Iron
    1 more image

    Branding Iron Steakhouse, on the corner of Route 191 and Spanish Trail Road serves a really mean steak.

    We were in Moab, Utah for a Land Rover Rally, and after having run the trails all day,w as looking for a really good steak. Close to where we were staying, the Branding Iron is a sure bet.

    Pretty non-descript as far as decoration. Certainly a Western-style steakhouse atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and the food prepared perfectly to order.

    Favorite Dish: Try their Super Burger, or sample one of Utah's local wines.

    Moab's Daily Grind: WAKE UP!!!

    Moab's Daily Grind

    Just on the outskirts of downtown Moab, Moab's Daily Grind offers fresh ground and brewed coffees of all sorts.

    Along Route 191, Moab's Daily Grind sits just back from the parking lot. There is a window int he front to place your order, and a drive through window along the back of the building.

    I tried the caramel mocha, my husband, of course, black. Both very satisfactory. Also had to indulge in chocolate covered espresso beans. Caffiene jolts do not get any sweeter than this!

    Red Rock Bakery and Internet Cafe: Little Bakery...BIG Flavor

    by KiKitC Written Nov 2, 2008

    Red Rock Bakery

    We found that Sunday morning, many places were not open for business, and thus we ended up at the Red Rock Bakery on Main Street. Once you opened the door and walked in, you were greeted with the warmest, most delicious smells. We ordered a brown bag lunch, made on homemade bread and even grabbed a couple of cookies (fresh baked of course)...one pumpkin chocolate chip, the other macademia raisin.

    Wanna sit and eat with a hot cup of coffee and check your V-mail? No problem...Red Rock is also an internet cafe.

    Favorite Dish: The cookies were fabulous and the sandwhiches were dlightful.
