“Surprise find on road to Grand Canyon”
Review of Merry Wives Cafe

Merry Wives Cafe
Ranked #2 of 2 Restaurants in Hildale
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 August 2014

This was a welcome find as we were making the long journey from the north side of the Grand Canyon to Las Vegas which was recommended to us by locals at the nearby Pipe Springs museum/ ranch (also fascinating and worth a stop). It is a small diner next to the filling station on the main road and did us an excellent simple lunch of salads, sandwiches and chips. Healthy and tasty, it hit the spot exactly. (It also had a fuller menu - special of the day etc - but this was all we tried)

This place serves great food, however, be aware that Hildale (along with neighboring Colorado City, AZ) is poligamy capitol of the USA and this restaurant is right in the middle of it. The waitresses and cooks in this restaurant are the plural wives of the members of this branch of the Mormon church. We enjoyed breakfast here...the food was definitely home made...and freshly made! I had multi-grain pancakes which were delicious and tasted like the batter was just whipped up for my order. Hash browns and eggs were also great.

My recommendation is to sit and enjoy the food while you people-watch...many of the men in this restaurant have plural wives and are big believers in their sect. We overheard them discuss various church matters with seemingly great dedication. The waitresses were pleasant and smiled at us, but still, they seemed a little distant. Overall, a great experience in dining.
