Sunglow Family Restaurant-Bicknell, Utah
If you ever find yourself in Bicknell, Utah, make sure you stop in and eat at the Sunglow Family Restaurant. This was by far the best meal I had in Utah. The owner, Patty Krause was in the night we ate, along with her children. They were all cooking, waiting tables and running the food. And the food was glorious.
I started my meal with a cup of the Ham and Potato soup, which was a creamy soup with chunks of potato and ham. They also brought out a plate of bread which they called scones. These scones seemed to be deep fried bread or biscuits and were to die for, especially slathered in honey butter. My meal was a nice piece of Chicken-Fried Steak($10.99), home made garlic mashed potatoes covered in country gravy and corn. The meal was perfect and I could not eat all of it, because I had to save room for pie.
Ryan had the Sunglow Burger($6.79), six ounces of ground beef mixed with chopped jalapeno peppers, topped with cheese, a side of chipotle sauce and a side of fries. Judy's husband, Kim, ordered the same meal as me and Judy ordered the Ground Round ($9.99). The ground round was a half pound of fresh ground beef that was grilled and topped with grilled onions and brown gravy. The entrees are served with scones, veggies, your choice of potato and soup or salad.
For dessert, I had a slice of Pickle Pie. It sounds strange, but it was actually quite good. It's a blend of sweet pickles and spices and is similar in taste to a pumpkin pie. Judy tried the Pinto Bean pie, which was made with red pinto beans and looked like a pecan pie. It was not as good as the pickle, but I would order it again. You can find a recipe for the pickle pie at their website www.sunglowpies.com. Perfect for serving at your holiday table!!
The location of the restaurant is 91 E. Main Bicknell, Utah 84715 435-425-3701. They also have a 15 room motel on the property.
