Dog Haus

Dog Haus

Jan 25, 2016

New to Sandy, Utah this month is the Dog Haus, which specializes in gourmet dogs, sausages, and burgers with all three served in their trademark King’s Hawaiian buns.  I had a chance to attend their soft opening a few weeks ago.  When it comes to a good dog, we are somewhat limited on our options.  We have Johnny Beef’s in Midvale for higher end...

Cottonwood Heights Cafe

Cottonwood Heights Cafe

Nov 14, 2015

It was the train that caught my eye.  Constantly on the lookout for new places to eat, Cottonwood Heights Cafe certainly has the local diner look as you drive in.  There is an average sized parking lot in the back, and we got the last spot, so that was definitely a good sign as I pulled in for my first visit a month or so ago. I’m not sure if this was the...

Chedda Truck

Chedda Truck

Cheddar Cheese.  Liquid Gold.  It is that glue that brings all the comfort foods together.  Not going to lie, I was pretty excited to see this food truck pull into the Old Mill Corporate Center last week.  All of my favorite foods have cheese as a featured ingredient.  Spring Time + Food Trucks + Cheese + Food Truck +  ……..  Cheese = WIN Chedda...

Papa Doug’s Dogs

I’m going to make it 3 straight food truck reviews, because that is how I like to roll.  Mid-80’s temperatures this week in Salt Lake City definitely has folks feeling happy and ready to get out into the sunshine.  There is just something American about walking up to a food cart or truck and ordering a nice dog with an array of toppings.  With that...

Rich’s Burgers

Rich’s Burgers

Mar 9, 2015

Finally tried out Rich’s Burgers in what has become a true foodie hub part of town on 30 E Broadway.  Rich’s is open for lunch and has a gourmet burger menu along with a daily burger of the day special. I went with the Mac & Cheese burger along with some green chile cheese fries.  Let me start with the burger.  Each individual component of the...

Wasatch Moon Cafe

Wasatch Moon Cafe

Aug 6, 2014

  This post embodies some of my all-time favorite things in this world.  Finding a local “hidden” diner off the beaten path that has the most amazing burgers and fries at near obscene prices is very near the top.  (I can only think of bacon and cookies topping it at the moment)  I’ve been to Wasatch Moon Cafe twice in the past few days....

If you want a good burger along with some fries and tasty fry sauce, then Tonyburgers is probably going to do it for you.  I’m not going to put them in my top 10 burgers from Salt Lake City.  They were decent, but a few things keep them from hitting a home run in my book. This slideshow requires JavaScript. The first thing I noticed about the restaurant,...

Bachi Burger

Bachi Burger

Feb 24, 2014

I’m very excited to write-up this review on Bachi Burger.  About 6 months ago I saw it featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and ever since then I have wanted to visit them.  Guy Fieri and I share something in common, we both love food.  I mean have you ever watched an episode of Triple D and not seen Guy absolutely love something he tried?  With that...

Ab’s Drive-in

Ab’s Drive-in

Nov 19, 2013

  Since I focus so much on local places and steer away from national chains, I unintentionally have left out some local drive thru joints that I really love.  I’ve been going to Ab’s Drive-In for over 15 years and really love it.  There is absolutely no reason to visit McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Carl’s Jr, and *gulp...

Skyline Chili

Skyline Chili

Aug 13, 2013

Chili is one of those foods that really has a wide range of interpretation as to how to prepare it.  Chili cook-offs around the country can have as many as 20 different categories based on beans, spiciness, meat, color, flavor etc. of the chili.  Cincinnati has a truly unique take on chili, and nothing embodies that unique spin than Skyline Chili.  I give you...
