Not many places to eat in Nephi, but this has to be the best place. It has traditional American fare on the menu including their specialty Country Fried Steak.

They did deliver quickly to the hotel... but got the order wrong, and the descriptions were overly optimistic. Sauces were strait from a bottle, or so it would appear. Very little creativity, except in the menu descriptions!!
Sweet and sour had three slices of carrot and two pieces of bell pepper, sauce on the side. Pretty plain with a pile of fried chicken and the skimpy veggies tossed in the middle. We had hoped for a few pieces of pineapple, but it was really just deep fried protein with a bland sauce to pour over. The coconut sauce was no better. Not horrible, but didn't meet expectations, considering the pictures in the menu and descriptions.
Ordered coconut shrimp, received coconut chicken, though until you take a bite, you couldn't hardly tell one deep fried nugget from another, be it chicken, pork or shrimp.
I would not order from here again. Barely warm pizza might have been an improvement over what we received.

We stopped for dinner, but neither my husband or I were very hungry. I asked what the soup of the day was, waitress said cheddar broccoli but - her words - it was more like cheese sauce, had very little broccoli in so she didn't recommend. I thought perhaps I would have the loaded baked potato, but she said they haven't made baked potatoes in a long time. So we asked for more time to look at the menu. It said they serve breakfast all day so we thought we'd go that route. I asked for an English muffin, but was told they quit serving those a long time ago because they had so many complaints about them. Giving up on a meal, I ordered apple pie ala mode. Mind you, the "ala mode" was an additional $1.00 which would be fine, except I was served about 3 teaspoons of ice cream (see photo). Meanwhile, my husband had hash browns and gravy which he said we're unremarkable. What did I expect in the middle of nowhere?

Stopped here while passing through Nephi on our way home. We like to try independent restaurants over the chain places if possible. Staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions. Food took a bit long for delivery, but we did have eight people in our group, so maybe that's the reason..(?) The food was freshly made, hot and plentiful. From cheeseburgers to corn dogs to specialty burgers to grilled cheese to chicken taco -- it was all good. Fries were also great. Our only suggestion is to please consider not making the grilled cheese with processed cheese. Much better food than a usual chain restaurant. When in Nephi, give this place a try!

Stumbled upon this from something we read in our hotel room in Nephi. Walked the couple of blocks to visit the One Man band diner.. quite a unique setup he has. You sit where you want and menus are on the table already. One person from the table picks up the phone that each table has and phones in the order for the entire table. The one man band then cooks it and a button at your table beeps when your meal is ready to pick up at the counter. Food was tasty but wasn't very hot.

We hit upon this Arby's as we were driving through Utah, and needed fuel. On the east side of Nephi, this place is not by all the truck stops and is easy to access from the interstate. The very efficient staff handled quite a crowd with ease. I enjoyed a brief, but satisfying meal.

This was just ok. Someone had put 4 stars not nice it's not. Had way better food than this. Everything had just ok taste. Kind of boring. Wish I would have tried another place. Do yourself a favor pass this one up.

Since it was the only restaurant open, it's where we ate. It was an okay experience.
The waitress was efficient. From the menu, some of the food seems to be overly spiced, breaded, etc. We found a sandwich that seemed plain enough to meet our needs.

We LOVE their pizza. The pizza is fresh, there are lots of options, and the prices are very reasonable. We love their meat combo pizza and their house salad. One large pizza, salad, and bread sticks is enough to feed our family of 5. This is a great place to get takeout.

This Subway is right off the exit in Nephi and it was very nice. It was very clean and it had inside and outside dining available. The staff was very friendly and fast. The food was good and fresh. I would definitely stop again. If you are pulling a trailer or a boat there is a large parking area and there are gas stations nearby.
