Buck’s Grill House – Moab

We were finally able to find Buck’s Grill House on our last night in Moab. We had failed, gloriously, the night before. So a phone call later, we finally found it. It kind of looks like some casual bbq joint from the outside, but the inside is kinda fancy, but not in a snooty way.
I mean, it’s as fancy as a restaurant can get that has a big animal head on the wall. Animal heads being on walls ended up being a common theme throughout our utah travels.
We dined outside, out back, on their patio. It was lovely. There are water features, a great view, and best of all, no bugs. Pretty much in Utah, there are no mosquitos. And honestly, it’s one of the best things about Utah. Here’s a basket of their warm sourdough bread. It was wonderful.
S got the buffalo meatloaf. It was my first taste of buffalo! It was topped with a black onion gravy and served with mashed potatoes and some steamed veggies. The flavoring of the meatloaf and the gravy made it not taste like a standard meatloaf. But we both liked it. It had a slightly mexican flavoring to it. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but it was definitely the opposite of bland. I was having some problems choosing and eventually ended up getting the shepherd’s pie. It’s a true shepherd’s pie, with ground lamb, various root veggies, and topped with cheddar mashed potatoes. Sometimes I don’t enjoy lamb, but this was really quite good. It was super hot and filling and I enjoyed all of the veggies inside, except carrots, since I’m the weirdo who doesn’t eat cooked carrots. The cheddar mash was great. The service was good, our server was super nice and friendly, and the food came out surprisingly fast. They are generous portions and the cost is quite reasonable. It definitely gets our approval!
