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...

Capriotti’s

Aug 27, 2015

West Valley City residents are familiar and excited with the growth that 5600 W has experienced over the past 10 years.  New to town and opening up within a month of each other are two new quick service sandwich establishments putting down tracks in the Salt Lake City area.  Capriotti’s is one of those new places opening up in the same development shared...

Carlos’ Kitchen

If you have lived in West Valley or Magna for any amount of time in the last 10 years then you will probably recognize this sign.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have driven by Carlos Kitchen 2 in the past year.  It is located right off of 3500 South just West of Harmons and some car dealerships. I visited with probably lowest...

Pizza Rev

Pizza Rev

Sep 1, 2014

Pizza Rev has taken over the building formerly owned by NYPD Pizza, and I see it as an upgrade.  They offer custom built quick pizzas with unlimited toppings at an affordable price.  I would compare them to the Pie Five that opened (and just closed) in Cottonwood Heights near Big Cottonwood Canyon, but better.  I had compared Pie Five as the...

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve driven by this place to get yet another  $5 Little Caesers pizza just a few stores down.  Let’s face it.  We have all done it, especially those with families, because it’s fast, easy, and cheap.  Each one of those times I’ve looked over and wondered to myself if this place was any good.  This...

L & L Hawaiian Barbecue

L & L Hawaiian Barbecue

Mar 12, 2014

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...

West Valley Billiards

West Valley Billiards

So this next place is a bit of a dive, it’s the West Valley Billiards pool hall in West Valley City!  I first heard about this place years ago on the radio.  One of the local stations was having a show based on what the listeners thought the best burger in Salt Lake was.  One particular caller talked about WVB and their whopper, so I went and tried it....

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...

  I know I teased several months ago about revealing where my favorite West Valley spot was.  I really was on the verge several times, but was side tracked by other restaurants that needed my attention.  Well that wait is finally over.  I’m going to go with Copper Creek Pub & Grill on this one.  It took me a while to finally muster up the courage...

I’ve been a resident of West Valley City for the past 10 years, and have realized that I haven’t blogged anything out this way.  Now before you start thinking to yourself “That’s because there is nothing good to eat in West Valley Hyrum!”  I’m here to tell you that in the past 2-3 years that has all changed.  For us West...
