Este Pizza in Sugarhouse, Utah has some great pizza and is in a really cool location.  I pulled up for lunch today, and took about 5 minutes to marvel at the vine wall outside the restaurant.  It reminded me of a kid watching Cubs baseball games on T.V because the wall had the same greed ivy as Wrigley Field in Chicago.  You have to go further East than the...

I probably never would have tried or even known about this place if it were not for Groupon.  But after buying the $10 for $20 deal, I had to try it.  This place is a breakfast and BBQ diner, the first time in my life I’ve ever heard of that combo. My co-worker had the Chile Verde special.  He said it was okay but nothing fantastic.  This plate was around...

I recently had the chance to enjoy a stay at the Zermatt Lodge in Midway, Utah.  Zermatt is a beautiful Swiss and German themed resort in the back of the Wasatch mountains.  I have to tell you about one of the best food experiences I have ever had there.  I use the term “food experience” and not just “dinner” because to me, it was not a...

Russo’s New York Style Pizza

Russo’s New York Style Pizza

Aug 21, 2012

I never got the opportunity to review this little St. George pizza joint during my last trip there, so I’ll go ahead and correct that now.  Russo’s is a NY style pizza place, meaning thin crust and big slices.  New Yorkers will fold these in half and eat them like a calzone.  On this day I got a slice of pepperoni, chicken bacon, along with some...

Ruth’s Diner

Ruth’s Diner has been doing business in the Salt Lake area for over 80 years, and it is an experience in itself.  A long time ago,  and in a galaxy far, far away, the owner Ruth had to move her restaurant up Emigration Canyon from downtown Salt Lake and that is where it has been since 1949.  You really get a sense of this history from just looking at the...

Snider’s Bros. Meats

Hear ye, Hear ye all Salt Lake City carnivores like myself.  Here is your temple!  Fresh quality meats as far as the eye can see, with a friendly staff that will answer all your questions of  “How do I cook/grill this?”  And see the sign on the far left?  They also have “Great” Sandwiches along with other items to make this Meat Market...

Peppers  Freaking Cantina baby.  It was a tough choice for my favorite St. George dive, but I’m pretty happy with this choice.  My first night in St. George I got in my car looking for anywhere to get some groceries for the week I would be staying.  I finally found an Albertson’s open.  After grabbing some chips and drinks (just the essentials) I...

We are getting really close for my pick for best St. George restaurant.  And believe me, I had a real internal struggle when choosing between my last two choices.  I could really go 1-2 or 2-1 on these, and either way you will come out a winner.  In the end the place I ended up choosing as my favorite we went there 3 nights in a row, because it was so good. ...

Continuing on with my St. George countdown from my recent trip, I offer you a local favorite Honolulu Grill.  When doing my homework, I didn’t find this through any of my normal research means.  This one was recommended to me purely from word of mouth.  Every time I asked someone about this place, they said they loved it, and I should try it.  Sold!  I...
