“Yummy!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Stan's Burger Shack is located next to the Chevron gas station in Hanksville. It is a typical US burger place, no fancy interior, typical picnic tables and tiled floor. Don't let those simple looks fool you. The burgers were delicious and their milkshakes and malts are to die for. The prices are very reasonable given the fact that there isn't much competition in town. Staff was very friendly and we even ended up chatting for a while as no other patrons were around. As they were closing for the day they even allowed us to finish our meal after they were gone and just asked us to make sure to close the door behind us and a colleague from the gas station would lock up the place later. While their manager or the owner might not like to read this we did appreciate the gesture and enjoyed having the entire place for us for a while. Thank You!

“Best burger I had in the US”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Genuine home made burger. Way ahead of anything like Mc D, Burger K, Hardees, etc.
Nice, non nonsense burger and great taste.

A nice feeling after 5 days of camping in Lake P.

“Great milkshakes & good food”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here after a visit to Capitol Reef National Park, and were pleasantly surprised. The milkshakes were thick and delicious. The food was good and the place reasonably clean. Would eat here again.

“Great burger place and friendly people!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stop at Stan's every year for gas on the way into Lake Powell and for dinner after the week on Lake Powell. Burgers are delicious and the ice cream shakes are the best we've ever had. We even left a credit card by mistake and they mailed it back it us no charge! Super place!
