    This is quite a nice looking little restaurant with its wooden tables and flooring and the various Western paraphenalia hanging from the walls. The menu is pretty much as it claims based around steaks, burgers and ribs. There is also a gift shop within the premises with the usual assortment of native American nick nacks and local craftwork.

    On the Friday night that we ate there the place was busy and the service painfully slow. We weren't even offered water as we waited about 1/2 an hour for our meal. The advertised liquor license turned out not to exist and the coffee substituted for a much looked-forward-to beer was miserably weak (and may even have been decaf).

    The food, when it finally arrived, was OK and relatively inexpensive and the iced tea served in glass boots was OK too. But everything taken into account this was still a major disappointment.

    Favorite Dish: Buffalo burger was tasty and not too cooked, but that's as good as it got.

    That little shed hidden between a couple of factory units is the only place within a major radius around Monticello where you can buy anything alcoholic stronger than the 3.2% beer available in a few convenience stores. The liquor stores in Utah are all state run, have a minimal range of brands and huge mark-ups. And this is if you can actually find one open. Here in Monticello the opening hours are 12 noon to 7pm, closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays.

    What to pay: As much as they think the market will bear.
