Utah Diners: Local Fare

One of the highlights of travel, at least for this rider, is the local diner scene....

Local legends; Longstanding enterprises; Places you plan to eat. The waitress calls you "hun". Places without planned "flair"

Took the boys fishing today in South Cache Valley (truck, canoe, no fish), and was listing all the great food establishments in such a small place....

To Wit:

Would like to start a list of local food eateries at which you are proud to have eaten, and call one of "your places".....

To Start:

Logan: -Logan's Heros. Excellent sandwich, Ahmed is a great guy.
- The Factory Pizza, downstairs, peanut shells on the floor
-Angies diner, biscuts and gravy

Salt Lake: -Pats BBQ. Wow. 21st S /West temple.
-Red Iguana, mexican, Mole!
-Morellia's Mexican on state by Fashion Place


Morgan-ish: Taggart's (up I-84 one exit, in of course, Taggart)

Salina: -Mom's Cafe (the Original) Not the greatest food, but good people)

Moab: -Moab Diner

Edit: intent is to find similar locals, please add "your" places

Best chili verdi I have EVER tasted....! IMHO!

What about Hanna's Kitchen in Hanna? I think it quailfies.

Also like Virg's in Erda and also Taylorsville, great breakfast food all day.

I've only had breakfast there and it is excellent. I like properly done basic eggs over easy, bacon, hash browns, toast and OJ and it was just what I was looking for. Very nice people working there, I agree. It is a throw-back, in a good way!

The Dogfather in St. George, UT.
www.dogfatherfranchise.com

Just a mom and pop run joint. Not a franchise like the site name says.



Merry Wives Cafe in Hildale, UT. By far, the best omelette in the state.

Sugarhouse BBQ in SLC.

El Chubasco in Park City.

Hanna's Kitchen qualifies as a dive.......with a great location...but I wouldn't recommend it for quality food.......



There is good food over past Kamas in Oakley at the Rhode Island Diner.......but it's not on the ride to Hanna.
