Must-Try Restaurants In Southern Utah
Whether you have had a full day skiing the Tushar Mountains or you have ventured through the red rocks of Capital Bowl National Parks in search of great grub, you can find a bevy of meals across southern Utah that are to die for. Many of these mom and pop joints serve traditional fare like steaks and chili, while others have far more exotic meals on their menu.
Ruby River Steakhouse, St. George
The title of the restaurant indicates the best choices on the menu. Anyone with a penchant for red meat cut fresh can choose Ruby River’s long line of steaks, ranging from t-bone to sirloin to ribeye. Each cut of meat is prepared fresh daily, then seared at over one thousand degrees. No steakhouse in the state compares.
Jailhouse Cafe, Moab
Though they’re only open between seven AM and noon each day, there is no place to get better breakfast or brunch than the Jailhouse. While you may have to stand in line for a bit to get a table, it will soon be piled high with ginger pancakes, soul food bacon, and chorizos. The home-made apple butter is better than any jar of Smuckers.
Big Moes, Price
Those who enjoy combining their meals with a challenge can check out Big Moe’s home to the Big Bite challenge. All you have to do is consume their one-pound burger along with two pounds of fries and wash it down with a large drink and you take home a t-shirt and get your name on the board. If you can do it in under seven minutes, then you’ve done better than the first-place winner last year.
La Casa Don Miguel, Cedar City
Since the state is only ten hour’s drive from Mexico, you would expect some of the best south-of-the-border meals to be found in Utah. If you want the best tacos, burritos, moles, salsas, and chiles that Utah has to offer, Don Miguel is your best bet. It tends to be busy during the Utah Shakespeare Festival, but otherwise is an easy going, great-tasting Mexican joint. Since it is one of the few places in Cedar City that serves alcohol, furthermore, you can wash down their great foods with great margaritas.
Milt’s Stop ‘n’ Eat, Moab
For those who want an old-time meal at an old-time diner, Milt’s is one of the greasiest spoon’s you’ll find. Near the Slickrock Trail of the Arches National Park, you can curb your hunger on their chili cheeseburgers that have not been changed in over fifty years. With bison burgers on the menu as well as beef, topped off with special made fries and served with massive milkshakes, Milt’s is a great place to visit on a southern Utah trip for those who are not afraid of a few calories.
If you want a meal that you will never forget in the southern region of Utah, there are plenty of choices. St George Restaurants offer hospitality as well as fine dining for tourists, visitors, and locals alike.
