  Everyone likes the idea of being a part of an exclusive club, and everyone like secret underground treasures.  If you don’t then go back and watch The Goonies or Fight Club again, and then come back and read this review.  This is why I’m taking a cautious approach with this review.  Yes, I took pictures of my food and the inside of this...

On the far end of historic Main Street in Park City sits Wasatch Brew Pub.  I had a chance to visit there with my pre-historic first generation iPhone and its horrible camera last month with some clients before a work conference.  I apologize in advance for the pictures, but I’ll do my best to share my thoughts of the place, as well as describe the few...

My food adventure has finally taken me to the other side of the Oquirrh Mountains to Tooele, Utah.  I can probably sum up in one paragraph what I know about Tooele.  It is the town that you drive by on your way out to Wendover.  It is also home to the Miller Racing Complex, and the Tooele Army Depot, as well as a chemical weapons incinerator.  (Okay I admit I...

Ski season may very well be coming to an end here in Salt Lake City, but it doesn’t mean you can’t take a trip to the mouth of Big Cottonwood canyon and pay a visit to Porcupine Pub and Grille.  Porcupine has that ski lodge feel to it, while being very open and modern at the same time.  I enjoyed the wooden floors, walls, and tables throughout.  It...

This is my 3rd of 4th trip to Red Rock, and if my memory serves me well, have enjoyed it each time, but it wasn’t until this visit to the new location at Fashion Place Mall that I ordered the perfect items.  Now I’m hooked on this place.  I like the new Fashion Place Mall re-design that has happened over the last year or so.  They have added new...

In honor of baseball season starting soon, I wanted to throw out a few choices for sports bars in the Salt Lake Area.  There are quite a few places that are bars who happen to have some T.V’s set up, and then there are others that are have a distinctive “sporty” feel to them.  Some of my favorites are Copper Creek in West Valley and...

The Garage embodies everything in a restaurant that I try to review on this blog.  It is off the beaten path, most of you may never have heard of this place.  And inside, you will find absolute treasures like the fried Mormon Funeral Potato Balls.  The Garage has been around for  50 years actually as a bar up in North Salt Lake on Beck Street.  Only for the...

I paid a visit to the new occupants of this building previously held by Terrapin Station, a BBQ joint, up in Millcreek, Utah.  I found them through Groupon, and have to admit, that I initially thought they were Millcreek Cafe which is further East down the same road.  It was not until I was driving to lunch that I realized this was an entirely new place I have...

Squatters downtown Pub and Brewery.  I parked in the public parking next door and go out of my mini Van.  I was feeling pretty tough I know.  I wanted to see if this was the type of place I could bring my kids in and get some food.  Sure enough after walking in the door, I immediately saw 3-4 tables with small children.  The place looked pretty cool, and I had...

  I know I teased several months ago about revealing where my favorite West Valley spot was.  I really was on the verge several times, but was side tracked by other restaurants that needed my attention.  Well that wait is finally over.  I’m going to go with Copper Creek Pub & Grill on this one.  It took me a while to finally muster up the courage...
