Merry Wives Café

Hildale, Utah (last visit: April 2010).

On the drive from Las Vegas to Page, restaurants along the way tend toward the fast food variety. One exception is the Merry Wives Café. Located in the heart of polygamist country, it is in fact owned by a group of polygamists - who obviously have a sense of humor. If you've heard of Warren Jeffs and the FLDS (see this Newsweek article), well, these folks have been excommunicated by Jeffs, which can only be a good thing.

The main reason to go to this restaurant is curiosity but, given the dearth of dining choices in the area, it's a good option for breakfast. I can vouch for their buttermilk pancakes: slightly crisp, slightly sour, light...just right. Breakfast sausage links were good enough, although I'm not sure what you can say about sausage links.

The Bill
I lost my notes, but suffice it to say that it was cheap.
