We went late one night and were told there would be a 30 minute wait. There was a very large group inside. It ended up being about 20 minutes. The cheeseburger was delicious! There was a crispness to the bun that went well with the...More

We ate dinner here twice during the week just to be sure. The burgers are hockey pucks. The fries are OK but nothing special. The coating on the onion rings is too thick. No free refills on soft drinks. The only thing worth ordering again...More

Family owned, serving the best fast-food burgers in town in my opinion. I travel through Kanab quite frequently and I always make it a point to stop here and grab a fast burger on the run. It is to this restaurant's credit and reputation that...More

My wife and I enjoyed a buffalo burger and then split a large shake. The shake was so thick it was more like a popular item sold by a national chain. When we walked in, a nice woman explained the menu to us. Very friendly...More

On our second evening in Kanab we were very tired from hiking in Zion NP, so we decided to go with burgers. Food was okay, but we had to wait really long. Service was also not as friendly as we're used to in the US.

Called in for lunch. The buffalo burgers were absolutely delicious. There are fifteen flavours of malted milkshakes on the menu. This fits my idea of the perfect burger joint.

We learned about Big Al's when we asked two locals where they went to eat. They were kind of reluctant to tell us, kind of glanced at each other and then gave up the name. We went at 1:30 on a Friday, and there was always a line to order the entire 45 minutes we were there. The limited menu is cooked to order, so there is about a ten minute wait for your food. This place is a hidden gem and we seemed to be the only non locals there. My green chili burrito was delicious, the sweet potato fries flavorful and others in our party were equally happy with their selections. Big Al's is located right next to a MacDonalds, and sure was doing more business.I almost hate to add it to the listing because Kanab is a tourist town, and this seems to be the local go to place that does a good business without advertising in any of the tourist publications.
