Patio Drive In is a locally owned business. We pride ourselves in specialized burgers, sandwiches, and hand whipped shakes of almost any variety. Our food is made to order, and cooked fresh. We are not a traditional fast food, and you may expect a 15-20 minute wait during the lunch or dinner rush.
My group of 15 friends stopped here after a half day hike and it was delicious!! They were quick considering our large group and the food was top notch. The fries aren’t my favorite but everyone else seemed to like them. The wraps and burgers are amazing and the ice cream was tasty too!

Driving to Arches National we were after afternoon coffee. Already wanting to stop in the stake house opposite side of the roead when suddenly spotted "espresso" label on this small gift shop. When inside we immediately noticed Italian style coffee machine raising our hopes for something significantly better than usual breakfast "refills". It didn't desapoint us. "Cowboy Coffee" was definetely the best one we had on our entire trip. And we enjoyed it having nice conversation with the owner while pickig few souvenir pieces from his turquoise jewelry.

We were out in the middle of nowhere in UT and were starting to get very hungry. Fortunately, we stumbled upon Yak's. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The food featured diner-style comfort food and was very good and filling. It was a terrific value for the money. It even filled up our 6'2 teenage son, which isn't easy to do. Yak's was a very welcome oasis.

The Homestead steak house is the only restaurant in Blanding. I think there is also a fast food place attached to a gas station somewhere, but this restaurant was right next to my motel, and I didn't want to drive anymore that evening, so I went in for a to-go order, even though a tour bus had just stopped, and it was chaos inside. There were not many employees, and they had their hands full with the huge tour group, plus a line of other folks wanting a table. The young woman who took my order seemed relieved that I just wanted a simple to-go order (salad and fry-bread), and I don't blame her! My salad and bread were good, and the fry bread came with honey, which I thought was a nice touch. It did take about 40 minutes to get the order, but to be honest, the place seemed understaffed as it was, so add in a tour bus full of people, and I had resigned myself to a bit of a wait :)

if ignorance is bliss, then this is the Gordon Ramsay of burritos. if youve had a burrito from baja fresh or robertos or a real taco truck parked aside a construction site anywhere outside this town, you will be so disappointed you will become furious & angry you got tricked with every extra bite! real burritos feature several meats to choose from like carne asada (chopped beef, usually sirloin tip) carnitas (usually fried pork shoulder), or (chopped grilled chicken) grilled to order so its got that great taste of everything cooked on that same grill you can only get from grilling to order...instead, it is the twighlight zone of burritos. its crock pot chopped beef, made sometime earlier that morning before opening wrapped in a steamed tortilla. no grill marks, just a mushy humid sticky tortilla with tiny scoops yes tiny scoops to regulate each portion weighs the bare minimum, the end result is half of a baja fresh or robertos burrito with a few ounces of pre cooked pre prepped hours old beef stew with one teaspoon of beans 1 teaspoon of rice, etc. and if you ask for a side of beans you get one of those tiny containers for ketchup for a small order of fries. basically a side of beans is literally two tablespoons in a container. i looked at them like they were psychotic, they looked at me like i had never seen a real burrito before and their way was the only way in existence, meat was tough dry but flavor was very ok. beans were delicious but only 2 tablespoons remember? just a wannabe burrito shop. atmosphere was the best looking besides the subway nearby. and literally 8-9 dollars for a 6 inch long burrito. Assembled to order yes, cooked to order? no way jose. thatd make too much sense in the twilight zone now wouldnt it. YUCK GROSS BLAH BLUH

We stop here after hiking in the Gulch for a week, so admittedly we are hungry, but the sandwiches are always the best. The service is always prompt and fast and we have never been disappointed.

Internet availability was sporadic and sparse during our vacation, but the free wifi at A & W was very much appreciated. It is part of a gas station, mini-mart, and even has a drive-through. Thank you for your hospitality!

When driving between Moab and Monument Valley on 191, you will notice there are not a plethora of choices to get coffee, unless you really like gas station coffee. Higher Grounds isn't easy to find, as there is no sign on the front of the building. It's worth slowing down and looking for it (east side of the highway). Great coffee and soda drinks and a good pastry selection. You'll be glad you stopped!

subway sandwhich quality as expected. high school students operating in tandem to make sandwhiches so expect cruddy service like "ok whatchu want" & when you ask for something & they dont hear you its a loud, "HEH?!" um i would like this/that please? "WAH?" but the orders are accurate obviously you are watching your sandwhich being made. good kids, just need some more assertion & polite courtesy is all.

Ok folks, if you are visiting Blanding and not able to cook you only have a few restaurant choices, especially at dinner time. While this was not the best pizza I ever had, it was certainly better than average - it was baked fresh (call ahead if you wish), they have a variety of toppings and ingredients and was very satisfying after a grueling day of hiking the Needles District. The chicken wings were good too, not greasy. There is a dining room but it was very hot, we had planned to "dine in" but changed it to "carry out." The staff is very friendly, seems like a family owned/operated place. I'd definitely stop in again!
