On the road again we stopped at the Backstreet Bagel Company in Montrose CO, where we decided on a Roast Beef, Horseradish, Tomato & Lettuce on a Sun-dried Tomato & Parmesan Bagel. Yelp reviews again guided us to above average food. The Bagel really added to the overall flavor, which was excellent for $9.30 per serve.
After arriving in Keystone CO, where we will be staying for a few nights, we revisited Dos Locos where we all ordered Enchiladas: Seafood for Foodie Philip and Spinach for Foodie Greg. They were as good as we remembered them for $21.84 per serve.
We stopped Mariana’s Country Cafe in Loa, UT where Foodie Philip had a very good Sunrise Skillet, while Foodie Greg enjoyed his Two Egg & Ham Breakfast for $9.63 per serve.
Looking for an available table in a busy tourist town on a holiday weekend was turning into a dead end, until Foodie Greg discovered a Food Truck Park in easy walking distance so we had a Spicy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich from Fresh2Go for $12.00 per serve. Eating outside and a walk Spring night was an enjoyable experience.
We stopped in Hatch, UT for brunch at the Sevier Coffee Company because it had excellent Yelp reviews. They were well deserved as the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Croissant we ordered was the best we’ve ever had! At $8.05 per serve it gets our strong recommendation.
There were not a lot of interesting dining experience nearby, so went to Ruby’s Inn because they were adverting a Flat Iron Steak, which is cut from the Chuck, but is tender and flavorful. There mixed reviews between the Foodies on the Home Fries, but the Steak was excellent for $30.17 with tax and tip.
The food options in a tourist town are very limited so it was back to Plaza Bonita for Huevos Rancheros before we hit the road, for $14,70 per serve.
With every appealing restaurant booked out, the Foodies picked up a Chicken Caesar Salad each, and ate it on our very delightful outdoor space at the room we were staying at, for $8.97 per serve.
While traveling the Foodies have been eating a large, late breakfast and then Dinner, but today we grabbed a Breakfast Bagel from the Deli in The Grand Canyon Nation Park, which was very ordinary for $8.42 per serve.
We retuned to Plaza Bonita, but with different dinner choices. The Foodies chose a very tasty Green Chili Verde, for $24.37 with tax and tip.
The Foodies are on the road and stopped for lunch in Needles. Sadly dine in options were limited, so we picked up Chicken Club Sandwiches and ate them down by the Colorado Rive. Kind of expensive at $8.07 per serve (more than the way superior Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich!)
Dinner in Tusayan at Plaza Bonita, where the Foodies had some quite good Shrimp Enchiladas for $25.95 per serve.
The fully vaccinated Foodies ventured out to The Country Deli for lunch – our first restaurant in more than 14 months. Foodie Philip had his usual Skirt Steak while Foodie Greg had a Pastrami on Rye, for an average of $24.24 with tax and tip.
