Potbelly’s

Aug 29, 2015

As promised, here is my review on the second sandwich shop to open up along 5600 W and 2700 S this month.  Potbelly’s also has a location opening in Sugar House.  It only took one visit to Potbelly’s to really enjoy them.  They are going to be in my rotation for local quick sandwiches. The first thing that stood out to me on the menu were the...

  Even Stevens first caught my attention when reviewing an online article of Salt Lake City’s best reuben sandwiches.  3 of the top 5 I expected to see in 9th South Delicatessen, Siegfrieds, and Feldman’s Deli, but then I saw Even Stevens on the list, and I’ve never even heard of them!  When I checked out their website, I noticed that...

After close to 200 reviews and 3 years of blogging, I have finally made it for breakfast at one of Salt Lake City’s renowned dining landmarks; Blue Plate Diner!  Yes, the breakfast was pretty dang good! The Blue Plate Diner is located just off of 2100 South going East towards Foothill Blvd.  You can find parking off the street or there is a lot just North...

Yet another review coming your way from the old Granite Furniture district in Sugarhouse.  The old building gave way, but spawned forth tons of new eating establishments.  One of the newest ones opened their doors recently, The Annex by Epic Brewery.  I’m about as far as an expert at rating bars as they come, but I’ll certainly give you my take on...

I’m pretty excited to be back in Sugarhouse reviewing the new Flatbread Neapolitan Pizzeria that just opened there recently.  This is now the second member of the VPN here in Utah that I am aware of, joining downtown SLC’s Settebello.  The VPN stands for the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, which is basically a code of how to make pizzas the...

There are certain countries and regions of the world that have strong associations with certain foods.  If I say Mexican, you may immediately think tacos and burritos.  If I Chinese, you may think fried rice.  If I say Italian, you think spaghetti.  Colombia has arepas, Argentina has milanesa, Japan has sushi.  Every culture has food that is synonymous with...

Sugarhouse is a great place to go when you are looking for a good bite to eat, so when Habit Burger Grill opens the doors to their first Utah location tomorrow, they will feel right at home.  I attended their soft opening tonight, with all proceeds going to charity with not knowing what to expect.  I remember the last California burger joint to open here had...

Sugarhouse BBQ

Sugarhouse BBQ

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’m kind of drifting into new territory with this post.   There are two things that I really don’t do a lot of, and they are A – I don’t do many national chains, only local places, and B – I don’t do many places that do seafood.  I’m breaking with traditional a bit with this story because I think Rubio’s Fresh...

Este Pizza in Sugarhouse, Utah has some great pizza and is in a really cool location.  I pulled up for lunch today, and took about 5 minutes to marvel at the vine wall outside the restaurant.  It reminded me of a kid watching Cubs baseball games on T.V because the wall had the same greed ivy as Wrigley Field in Chicago.  You have to go further East than the...
