Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa

Feb 4, 2015

  I’ve been to Orlando dozens of times, but always just went directly to one of the theme parks.  I was flying solo with some time to kill so decided to venture into downtown Orlando to seek out some of the city’s best eats.  I didn’t really have time to do my normal homework on the Interwebs with sites like Yelp and Urbanspoon so instead...

2015 has certainly brought me good fortune when it comes to BBQ places.  A few weeks after trying a great new place in Holladay, I finally made it down to Orem to try well recommended Five Star Barbecue.  When it comes to ranking my favorite BBQ places, I boil it down to three different categories:  meat, sides, and sauce.  For the meats I like to see a good...

  It is with mixed feelings that I write this review.  H&D BBQ just opened up on Fort Union in the space previously occupied by Cucina Vanina.  While I’m sad that one of my favorite Italian places just closed up, I was excited to have a new BBQ option open up in Holladay close to my work. Pretty straight forward menu board that you would expect...

Brand new last month in West Valley City, Utah off of 5600 West is L&L Hawaiian Barbecue.  I’ve been here two times for takeaway so far, and I have mixed feelings.  I’ve had a dish that I really love, and one I really did not at all.  When I first saw it, I thought it was a local place starting up.  Actually upon further review, L&L is in 4...

    Ever since quitting my theatre job a few months ago I see less and less of downtown Salt Lake City.  Every week I would drive down 3rd West and would pass the intersection of 600 South and notice just a Subway and a sushi restaurant next door.  I never bothered stopping in since I’m not a real sushi fan, and there are literally thousands of...

Ah Sugarhouse BBQ.  There is just something about that name that sounds right.  Kinda rolls off the tongue if you know what I mean?  Sugarhouse BBQ.  There is a special place in my heart for this place.  I love BBQ food.  I had two loves as a young boy.  The first was Princess Sorsha from the movie Willow, and the second was BBQ ribs.  Sugarhouse just does it...

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...
