Wanted: Page, Arizona Recommendations, Please

Our favorite Mexican restaurant, Zapatas, is now an Italian restaurant and quite a disappointment to us.

Any recommendations for where to dine in Page while driving to and from Lake Powell?

  1. There is absolutely nothing to my knowledge. Perhaps, though, the Chinese restaurant next to Bashas would be the best. If you are getting on a houseboat, I recommend you eat on board!

      We are fortunate in the fact that I dare say the food on our houseboat seems to be as good or better than any on the lake. It was always comforting, however, to have a great Mexican lunch entering or exiting Page at Zapatas.

      Fiesta Guadalajara (or Fiesta. Difficult to remember which is in which town)
      and Dam Bar and Grill are definitely palatable, but I just wondered if we were somehow missing a hidden gem.

      Cosmic Jester:
      The green chile chicken fried steak sounds intriguing. We will see if it is on the menu in Page.

    2. A number of folks like the Ranch House Grille here in PHX, which is a somehwat new offshoot of the family's original eatery of the same name in Page. I've not been to the latter, but am a fan of the simple, hearty fare of the former. It's known for big portion breakfasts, but the PHX location also has lunch items - so I assume the Page eatery does the same. It's not fancy or explorative cuisine - just solid diner-like fare. Big breakfast plates, country fried steak, burritos, burgers, etc.

        The standout item on RHG's menu is the green chile chicken fried steak. It's phenomenal.
