Was on my way to a softball game last month at Sandy’s Quarry Bend Park.  I was coming from Old Mill Corporate Center and instead of taking probably the quickest route of I-215 to I-15, I decided to take some back roads and go through Murray and Sandy.  This was done on purpose as it gives me a chance to look for new yummy places to try.  This is exactly...

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...

New in Sandy, Utah is Togo’s Sandwiches!  Togo’s is a sandwich shop that started in San Jose, California back in 1971, and now they have opened doors just south of Scheels Sporting Goods.  In fact the area is full of restaurants that have huge followings in other states but are somewhat new to Utah.  In the same parking lot Rita’s Frozen Ice...

  This slideshow requires JavaScript. Opening up recently in the shopping center across the street from South Towne Center is Zilio’s Artisan Pizza.  Zilio’s is a quick service high quality pizza provider where everything on the menu is $6.50.

Simply Thai

I’ve got a personal good luck streak going when visiting Thai places.  It seems like I have enjoyed them all.  Simply Thai is a gem tucked away in a strip mall just south of South Towne Center in Draper.  There are two flavors that seem to come in every Thai place I’ve visited and that is curry and coconut.  Simply Thai does them both justice. I...

Adobos Caribbean Grill is a great place for anyone looking for something a little different from the normal American fare.  This place has some delicious food with some unique ingredients.  Great tasting drinks, and awesome “mofongos” which we will get to later.  You can find them over Union Square Plaza on the corner of 9400 South and 700 East....

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...

Found this place today, and already feel comfortable ranking it among my favorite places to eat.  Of my family of 5 there were 5 solid votes that this place was awesome.  Even little Levi kept chugging down his freshly made soup.  (Disclaimer:  Levi puts anything you place in front of him in his mouth.  He’s kinda a big boy) As we got out of our van to go...

I love exploring new territory, it makes me feel like I did when I was a kid growing up in an Air Force family.  Every few years we would move and there would be new playgrounds, woods, fields, and stuff to explore.  As is the case with me and Sandy, Utah.  I’ve reviewed a few places down this way, but recently discovered this little gem of a restaurant...

Salt City Burger

Salt City Burger

Feb 5, 2013

There are a few subtle nuances of Salt City Burger that makes it a really solid choice for a burger and fry destination.  First and foremost, they deliver you the canvas on which the burger is built.  They don’t pretend to dictate to you how you should craft your burger.  Secondly, they already have a big jar of fry sauce at each table, along with just...
