Pastrami Burger with Mushrooms

Big Burger

Saddest update possible: Big Burger is NOW CLOSED.

Big Burger. The beginning of it all. This particular drive-in has a very special place in our hearts, as it is the restaurant that inspired it all. This was the first small-town joint that we tried, and that was only because we were in the mood for a small-town place. It was a dark day in the spring of last year, and Big Burger shown like a beacon of hope on that day to us. Continue reading

BLT's from Arshel's Cafe

Arshel’s Cafe

Arshel’s Cafe in Beaver, Utah is great. Simple as that. Like many of the restaurants we go to, this is just a couple of minutes from I-15. As we mentioned when writing about Maria’s Cocina, we didn’t know this place (or any place in Beaver, for that matter) existed; and as with Maria’s, it is worth the couple of extra minutes to actually go into the town and eat at an actual restaurant, rather than going to one of the fast food joints found right by the exits.

Breakfast at the Parowan Cafe

Parowan Cafe

Having stayed the night in Parowan, it only seemed appropriate that we enjoy some breakfast there in the morning.  Though the city isn’t really large, there are a lot of people who travel through because of its location. From Parowan, you can take Highway 143 which cuts through the city, and takes you up to Brian Head ski resort and Cedar Breaks national monument; it is also a convenient place to stop for gas, as there is a large truck stop just off of I-15 at the exit for Parowan. For breakfast, we went to the Parowan Cafe (or Teresa’s Parowan Cafe according to their website). Continue reading

The carnitas, tacos, and a glass of the homemade horchata

Maria’s Cocina

For anyone that may have had the same idea that we had about  Beaver (that is that Beaver is just a small town that is only good for truck stops),you owe it to the town to drive through and see what Beaver is really all about, because in all reality Beaver is about as quaint as a small city can be. Beaver is a nice place to stop on your way south, but it’s also got more to it then that. Like many of the cities we go to and have gone to, we were directed to an awesome place to eat.
