They've got all the basics for a local burger/ice cream joint. Normally you would order and eat outside, but even on a warm winter day, we were able to order and wait inside, then eat on the picnic tables outside.

Love this place. As a winter visitor to Escalante, there are not a lot of options for eats. But check this place out - it’s cute as a bug’s ear and the guys running it are super sweet and friendly. I had the bison burger,...More

We couldn't have been luckier than finding Nemo's. Just a simple roadside stand with outdoor seating at picnic tables and wonderful cheeseburgers. The bison burger and fries were very good. Malts and milkshakes huge and absolutely wonderful. Don't drive by - stop here!

Nemo's ice cream is the best I have tasted! We were in town for a hiking trip to the Grand Staircase and after walking 9 miles, we stopped at Nemo's for a cone. I had the raspberry pecan which was so delicious--natural tasting and rich!...More

Loved the ice cream and burgers. Fast eats at a good price. Worth the visit we ate outside under the stars.

We stopped there on our way to Arches NP: very good burgers, fries and onion rings. You can sit on picnic tables around the premises. A very cute place to have a decent meal during a long day of driving. I definitely recommend this place.
