Family Favorite Restaurant in Kanab Utah

Published on March 7, 2019 by

The number one question visitors ask is “Where should we eat?”  Once they let me know what they are looking for, and that is “Just good home-cookin' ” then my number one answer is Houston’s Trails End Resturant,

Houston’s is a Kanab staple. Plain and simple.

Houstons Trails End Restaurant

A Great family restaurant with reasonable prices, and on a good night, the waitresses all have their holsters and sixshooters on. This is the West after all and Houston’s has been serving up Western style for more than 40 years!

Houstons counter

In 1945 Merle “Peaches” and Donna Beard opened the Trail’s End Restaurant. Thirty years later, in 1975, The Houston family took over the reins. A lot has happened here in the West since then, but one thing that has stayed the same is the high-quality food and service that you can find at the Trails End Restaurant. The next generation of Houston’s now run the business. But today, just like in the past, Grandpa Bob still makes 10 gallons of his country gravy and DayLean bakes her rolls daily. (There should have been a photo of TWO of those big fat fluffy rolls in the opening photo - but they come out warm...... John was not about to wait for it to cool down!)

Houstons catering

In 1978 the Houston Family expanded into the mobile catering business and since that time has worked for the Federal Government feeding firefighters at remote sites all over the West. In 1999 Houston’s Catering, Inc. was awarded the “Small Business Contractor” of the year award by the Department of Agriculture. This was no small task for a company from the small town of Kanab, Utah. The catering company continues in operation today and you may very well see their rigs running up and down the roads of the West.
