Thai Spice Restaurant

Thai Spice Restaurant

Apr 9, 2016

I was having one of those days, cruising down Ft. Union looking for something new for lunch.  Of course there are hundreds of options on that road, and finding Thai Spice was a bit of a trick.  I must have drove by it countless times in the past.  It was a red brick strip shopping center round 850 East in Midvale.  It caught the corner of my eye, and since I...

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....

Bohemian Brewery & Grill

Bohemian Brewery & Grill

Oct 3, 2013

Where does a food blogger go for his birthday?  I chose Bohemian Brewery & Grill for  dinner.  It had to be a place that I had not been too, but that I felt was going to be good food.  It also had to be a place that could accommodate large groups, and an atmosphere where I could bring my kids too.  I was pleased the find that Bohemian Brewery does just fine...

Mama’s Plantation Restaurant

Mama’s Plantation Restaurant

Mama’s is located just off of Ft. Union in front of Wal-Mart and Pie Pizzeria, and right next door to Teriyaki Grill.  They don’t really have a sign that displays the name of the restaurant, just the neon sign that says “Catfish”.  It was just intriguing enough for me and a buddy to give it a try before heading to a movie.  I had...

Firehouse Subs

Firehouse Subs

Mar 7, 2013

When I think back to the time I was a kid, there wasn’t really a sub sandwich option where I grew up.  You had Burger King, Wendy’s, McDonalds, Arby’s, and Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Then I remember when Subway started to really hit the scene.  Everyone loved how it was a “healthier” option to french fries and burgers.  And who...

Longhorn Steakhouse

Longhorn Steakhouse

I have received a number of Darden gift cards in my day, and up until this week the only SLC choices have been Olive Garden and Red Lobster. Well SLC now has a third Darden offering opening next week and that is Longhorn Steakhouse. Turns out these Texas boys know a thing or two about preparing delicious steak, fish, and chicken. Tonight my wife and I had a...

Every once a while you will see a name of a restaurant, that based on the name alone, you feel you have no choice but go inside.  For example if you saw a sign that said “Free Food”, or “World’s Best Donughts”, or “Punch a Kardashian in the face” you would obviously stop what you were doing and go inside right away....

Teri-Yaki Grill

Teri-Yaki Grill

Jun 11, 2012

This review of Teri-Yaki Grill is perhaps one the most long-overdue reviews in the history of this blog.  This should of been one of my first ever reviews.  Teri-Yaki Grill and I have quite a history together.  When I first moved to Utah as a permanent resident in 2000, I worked as a customer service agent at GE Capital over in Taylorsville.  Over the next 5...

Johnniebeefs Chicago Style Hot Dogs

Who can forget the scene from the Christmas classic “A Christmas Story” when Ralph is helping the old man change the tire outside.  Ralph accidentally spills the lug nuts all over the street and drops and F-bomb in front of his dad.  Later on in the scene Ralph was talking about how his dad was an artist.  Some artists work in oils or clays, but his...
