Utah’s restaurant scene has been gaining momentum and even attracting national attention. But this Western state still loves its lesser-known, family-run restaurants. Here are our top 10 mom-and-pop restaurants.
The city of Kanab lies on Utah’s border with Arizona and is in close proximity to two extremely popular national parks. With only about 5,000 residents, it is a quiet, charming town with small businesses and some surprisingly great locally owned restaurants. Big Al’s Burgers has been a long-time staple on the local dining scene and is also known as Junction Drive-In. This small-town hot spot delivers everything you’d expect from an American drive-in, including burgers, fries, onion rings, and shakes. Try an Outlaw burger piled high with bacon and cheddar cheese, or try something a little more wild with a buffalo burger. There is no fuss with Big Al’s Burgers; it’s just an excellent place to get a burger.
