We stopped in for dinner on our way back from Capitol Reef. The food was decent, the service as well. I found the prices to be high given the quality of food. With that said, Torrey is a smaller town with not a ton of...More

The guy in charge was exactlycwhat you'd expect - attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was a bit less; my fajita arrived non sizzling with what looked like a warmed dish. Her dish seemed equally heated, but she said it was good. Low prices.

We ate here one evening. The food was freshly prepared and was very tasty. I loved it but my partner found it too spicy so we didn't go there again. But if you like hot spicy food, freshly prepared then give this place a try.

Nice people. Food was varied but to mild for my taste. My wife liked her shrim taco ( that's how it appears on the menu).

The broken barrel planters full of weeds and cigarette butts, should've been a warning. The food is tasteless. The mole is not as good as what you can get from a jar and the pork in green sauce was insipid. I would've given it one...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
do you have outside seating and if so do you allow dogs in it? We will be staying at the Affordable Inn and would like to walk over for dinner with Yutah. Twitter @YutahW or Instagram @yutah_the_wolfdog if you would like to see how well behaved and social she is.

This is a brand new cafe serving Mexican Food. It is part of the Sinclair Gas Station complex. The food was excellent. They travel a couple of times per week to Salt Lake City to get fresh produce.
