In addition to the restaurants discussed here, Moab has a 24-hour Denny's at 191 N. U.S. 191 (tel. 435/259-8839; www.dennys.com). To view the menus of practically every restaurant in town, see www.moabhappenings.com.

Those looking for a Western-style dinner along with a foot-stompin' good time will want to make their way to the Bar-M Chuckwagon Live Western Show and Cowboy Supper, 7 miles north of Moab on U.S. 191 (tel. 800/214-2085 or 435/259-2276; www.barmchuckwagon.com). Diners go through a supper line to pick up sliced roast beef or barbecued chicken, baked potatoes, baked pinto beans, cinnamon applesauce, buttermilk biscuits, cake, and nonalcoholic beverages. Vegetarian meals can be prepared with advance notice, and beer and wine coolers are available. After dinner, a stage show entertains with Western-style music, jokes, and down-home silliness from the Bar-M Wranglers. The grounds, which include a small Western village and gift shop, open at 6:30pm, with gunfights starting at 7pm, dinner at 7:30pm, and the show following supper. The Bar-M is usually open from April through mid-October, but is closed several evenings each week; call for the current schedule. Supper and show cost $28 for adults, $14 for children 4 to 12, and free for kids 3 and younger. Reservations are strongly recommended.

Another themed dining experience is available from Canyonlands by Night & Day (tel. 800/394-9978 or 435/259-5261; www.canyonlandsbynight.com), which offers a variety of excursions in the area, including an evening river trip, operating spring through fall, that combines a 1 1/2-hour sunset jet-boat ride with a Dutch-oven dinner. Cost for the boat trip and dinner is $70 for adults and $60 for children 4 to 12 (minimum age 4), with a family rate of $215 for two adults and two children. Reservations are recommended. The office and dock are just north of Moab at the Colorado River Bridge.
