My husband and I both had burgers and they were delicious. All their beef is from a local farm and the taste confirms it. Fries were crispy and everything was cooked to order. Highly recommend.

Awesome 2/3 lb burgers that even filled up my two boys. At $13 it really hits the spot. Very friendly and helpful server that gave us great directions on how to get to a pair of slot canyons in the area.

The peach cream pie is to die for. They also have a Utah beer, Polygamy Nitro Porter (its logo is "Take some home to your wives!") which is a good dark beer.

The Circle D Eatery and the adjacent Circle D Motel is independently owned and operated. We offer casual dining of American cuisine. You can comfortably dine inside, in our covered patio, or on the outside patio. We are well known for our ribs, brisket, and chicken which are smoked on premise. Our beef is from Flying V ranch - a local rancher - who raises range fed cows in the Escalante area. We also have available several vegetarian offerings. Beer and wine are also available.
