Dining between Flag and Moab

This is a shot in the dark, but I'll try anyway. I do the drive between Flagstaff and Moab quite often. Does anybody know of any worthy or even semi-worthy places to eat in any of the towns on the way (Tuba City, Kayenta, Mexican Hat, Blanding, Bluff, Monticello). I tend to avoid pizza and burgers, but given the few options on this route I could make an exception to this. My inclination is that I should just bring food from home, but if anyone knows anything different please let me know.

  1. If you do the drive often, you certainly are aware of the gustatory limitations. We tend to stop in Mexican Hat because of the gorgeous setting and/or in Tuba City to support the locals. It's always a fuel stop, not a dining experience.

      Having done that drive 4 times in the last year, I was wondering if anyone has tried Twin Rocks in Bluff, UT? There are always cars out from and it looks interesting. I did an overnight in Kayenta and the diner choices according to the person running my motel was the Holiday Inn or the Hampton Inn. So I had to chose between BK or Mickey D's.

    2. I'm about to depart on this trip so I'd thought I'd do a last-minute bump to see if I get lucky. Help me out Hounds.

        I don't imagine there's been a big culinary improvement along this stretch in the last six weeks.
