Today we decided to take a drive up to Cedar City, which I found out is actually part of Southern Utah.

We stopped in at Spaghetti Western located off Main Street. They haven’t been open for very long and this little gem of a restaurant is a place that serves awesome food and they are out to make sure the customer is happy with their food choices.

295550_366653386781265_198190303_nWe were confused on the name Spaghetti Western, so I had to take to Google to find out what it meant. This is what I found out about what a Spaghetti Western is;

Spaghetti Western, also known as Italian Western, is a broad sub-genre of Western films that emerged in the mid-1960s in the wake of Sergio Leone’s film-making style and international box-office success. It was used by critics in USA and other countries because most of these Westerns were produced and directed by Italians. According to actor Aldo Sambrell, the phrase ‘Spaghetti Western’ was coined by Italian journalist Alfonso Sancha.[1] In the beginning the term was used in a derogatory sense, but over time it has become accepted as descriptive. The denomination for these films in Italy is western all’italiana (Italian-Style Western).

IMG_5497We were greeted as soon as we walked into the door by a very nice waitress. She was a bit quiet and timid. I kinda got the idea that this may be her first job at waitressing. She did an awesome job either way. She told us about the menu items and went over what was in the rattlesnake eggs. That was a good thing since I had no plans on eating rattlesnakes, lol. They are hand stuffed whole jalapeno’s with bacon wrapped around them. They are very tasty and I have to say that I was glad that none of my other guests liked jalapeno’s, which meant more for me. I did have to take them home though.

Lemon Peppered Chicken and Fries

Lemon Peppered Chicken and Fries

Lisa ordered the lemon peppered chicken with fries on the side. She was very happy and said that her chicken was moist and cooked perfectly. The fries were hot and would be considered steak fries. There was no chicken or fries left on her plate.

Her son Christopher ordered from the kids menu and said that they made the most awesome mac and cheese he ever tasted anywhere. When we first arrived, he was in no mood to eat, but he changed his mind. One of the waitress’ named Brenda seen that Christopher was getting bored and she brought him over some crayons and a coloring book. He really enjoyed the place.

My brother-in-law Craig chose to order Spaghetti. With the name Spaghetti in the name of the restaurant, we wanted someone to give it a try. He had no complaints and was happy with it. He said he would order it again.

BBQ'd Chicken with Okra and Scrambled Eggs

BBQ’d Chicken with Okra and Scrambled Eggs

I ordered the BBQ’d Chicken with Okra and Scrambled Eggs for my side. They have Okra on the menu and I grew up loving it. My parents and grandparents made it fried with scrambled eggs and chives. I know it sounds weird. I mentioned this to our waitress and to my surprise, that is how they made it for me. They will go out of their way to make sure you are happy.

They also have some awesome things in the works. For all of you that live in Cedar or go to SUU, keep an eye open. I hear there is going to be live entertainment and all kinds of fun things.

IMG_5494They serve Pepsi products, which I was happy over. Our overall experience was a very positive experience. When we went in, it was like family. They are a newer restaurant and have some new employee’s. I would suggest a little patience and understanding. Since they are a new restaurant, they are working on the menu and getting the kinks out. We would go back again. When we go to Cedar City, I know where I will be having lunch or dinner at. One of the owners TiAnna went out of her way to make sure we had what we needed and that everything was good.

They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

      I have to say that they had alot of problems. We went there when they first opened and didn’t have a problem. But it pretty much went downhill from what we have heard. We are out of St. George so we don’t go to Ceder much. I agree there was good reasons for it to be shut down. Many times places start off good and if you don’t have the right people, then it doesn’t work.
