We were driving through the area and decided to stop. Its just a small building with outdoor picnic tables for a dining room. The menu was pretty good for such a small establishment. They even had buffalo as an option! The service was very friendly and fast. If you're looking for a place to stop in Escalante, don't pass by... More

This place is a must stop after hiking or biking. Great burgers, sandwiches, and ICE Cream, yummy shakes and cones

Just a perfect drive-in experience-classic old building, picnic tables, right on Main Street in the rural town of Escalante. And the food is on par or better than any restaurant in town.

Nemo's is open 7 days a week including Sunday's now and food is great, we had the pepper jack burger the cheese burger and the super BLT all three were very good and finding an open restaurant this time of year in Escalante is tuff! They even have an open drive thru.

We tried the chicken sandwiches and they were very good. We tried the three berry shake which was good but not our idea of a shake. Nemo's was only open on the weekend during our stay in November.

Pass on the burgers and fries which aren't special except overpriced but be sure to stop for the berry treats. Cold and delicious.

We shared a club sandwich, upgraded our fries to onion rings and an Oreo shake. All were delicious. The sandwich was piled high with turkey. The onion rings were real whole onions, not pieces. The Oreos were crunchy until the end. Service was relatively fast. A bit pricey at $17. Tables are available outside to eat.

When traveling in remote locals like southern Utah on a Sunday, finding food is not always easy. Fortunately, Nemo's was open and we had an enjoyable, old-fashioned burger and fries at a picnic table under the trees. The day had started to warm so the shade was refreshing. Hubby ordered a milk shake...and wow, what an impressively large serving it... More

I was NOT expecting a vegan burger at a roadside shack in Escalante but it was delicious. My husband loved his peanut butter milkshake. Great food in the middle of nowhere!
