While K & A Chuckwagon is still for sale, the owner, Anna Clarke, opened up her outdoor eatery on June 1, 2014 once again. She was not going to disappoint the locals, visitors, groups and bus tours who look forward each summer to her most delicious chuckwagon style menu. What is so wonderful about her food; homemade with love! That's right, homemade bread, salads, desserts, honey butter for the bread, ranch beans, country style potatoes. To add to it, she does the grilling herself of a full pound of either boneless, skinless Chicken Breast, New York Strip Steak or Baby Back Ribs. Hold on for a sec while I wipe the drool off my chin just thinking about all that awesome food.
Alright, back to writing; after placing your order, Anna gets to work grilling it up to perfection. The chicken is basted in a lemony butter sauce; the ribs and steak sprinkled with a seasoning mixture; the ribs get a good basting of her "secret bbq sauce" at the end. The Colonel of KFC stole the phrase "finger lickin' good" from Anna, I will attest to that! Don't be fooled by Anna's appearance; just because she is sporting a bit of grey on top of that head of hers; she ain't no fool, has lots of sass, yet full of sweetness.
Now I'm going to call a spade a spade here; this has got to be some of the best chuckwagon style food around Southeastern Utah. Anyone looking at the photos saying, "Yuck, that's gross; I wouldn't eat that!" Well you can stick with your foie gras, bonbons and dabbing your dainty lips with a linen napkin. I'm going to enjoy chowing down on those sides and wearing that bbq sauce all over my face when I'm eating those ribs.
Oh, right, I'm supposed to describe the food itself too; tender, juicy, mouth watering, not a single bite leftover of the chicken, ribs or steak; well except the bones from the ribs. The salads are fresh and tasty; the bread is soft; the honey butter is sweet, creamy and rich; the ranch beans are cooked to perfection with a nice kick to them; the country potatoes...I would kill for a second helping of those potatoes; the dessert is to die for. That enough description for you?
