Food was ok. Not amazing but fine for a small town burger joint. Great place to hang out for a bit. Pool table, foosball, air hockey, and ping pong in a separate room. Service was decent.

We enjoyed a pretty decent barbecue dinner here. They also had some nice micro-brew beers available. I think this was one of the better options out there for this location.

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.
