Eating in Moab

Paradox Pizza delivers. The walls exhibit purchasable art. Feel good about recycling which is set up for patrons to easily use. Yummy salads and mouth watering pizza toppings. And you can get a beer with that.
The Blue Pig is open for dinner, stating Blues, Brews and BBQ. During the day the restaurant can be reserved for business or wedding luncheons or other group uses. The Blue Pig also provides catering for more remote events.

Eddie McStiff's Garden Room may be used for private parties. Throughout the season live music is often scheduled for weekends and some weekday evenings in Moab. Outside many mingle at the Tiki Bar for Happy Hour specials.

Sunset Grill is aloft on the east canyon wall. Once a millionaire's home, the restaurant now offers up spectacular views from the patio or the room with wrap around windows. Sunset Grill has been the location of weddings too.
Zax's has an all you can eat pizza and salad bar among other choices for lunch. It is open early for breakfast. There is a sports bar to your left and the restaurant to your right with a wrap around veranda for additional seating. An ambiance fireplace burns outside when the weather warrants lighting it.
Love Muffin is very retro. Go there for a breakfast burrito, specialty coffee and lunch. A few tables are situated on the sidewalk out the front door.

Eklecktica Cafe has a shady garden to supplement the little indoor seating. This cafe will have vegan options, serves up coffee or choose your own beverage from a refrigerator. There will be dessert choices at the counter.
Red Rock Bakery is adorned with local art on the walls. Sandwiches are on breads baked on the premises. Have a cup of coffee, pour your own water from a dispenser. Free wifi, however, most places in Moab offer free wifi.
There is the newly styled Peace Tree Cafe with an airy feel and enticing menu. Try the Sweet & Salty Beet salad.
Settling in to eat in Moab. But first you have to park. This is Slickrock Cafe. It is located on the corner of Main and Center Streets. Turn here toward 100 West to find a city parking lot. Look for a little lane just past Sew Moab.

Recycling in Moab

Many businesses encourage recycling in Moab. At the Canyonlands Campground it couldn't get more convenient, a recycling shed right next to the dumpster. And Paradox Pizza has an exemplary system too.

Recently a story about Moab students recycling has been released. The Travel Council department for Meetings Weddings and Events has Green Sustainable Event Tips. Sara Melnicoff is a true recycling champion with a devoted crew of volunteers. They maintain highly impacted areas in the Moab community and toil with sorting at Moab's Recycling Center.
