Magleby’s Provo Review

Review by Dan Purdon Magleby’s has long been a Utah County trademark restaurant.  Ever since Doc opened his first Magleby’s restaurant here many years ago, the restaurant has gone through multiple location changes, spawned two new franchises, and endured the aftermath of hundreds of BYU home games. Magleby’s most recent move brought it to the […]

Gloria’s Little Italy Review

Guest review by Dan Purdon, Vicarious Gourmet Ever since Gloria’s Little Italy opened up on the very corner of Center Street and University Parkway in Provo (across from Los Hermanos), I’ve had it on my list of restaurants to hit.  But for some reason the right chance never seemed to come along…  until today!  It […]

Rooster Dumpling and Noodle Bar Review

During the summer, at one of the festivals in Provo, I ran across a little booth for a new local restaurant called Rooster Dumpling and Noodle Bar. I absolutely love Asian food, but it can be a real challenge to find a place that has tasty, authentic food that isn’t loaded with MSG. Stemming from […]

Hot Dog King Review

Guest review by Dan Purdon, Vicarious Gourmet I waltzed into the Hot Dog King on State Street in Orem last Saturday evening, ready for some tubesteak smorgasbord.  I was greeted first by the cartoon dog painted on the front window, then by the Hot Dog King himself as I stepped inside.  “King” Charles has been […]

Hot Dog Month- J Dawgs

This week’s destination for Hot Dog Month was J Dawgs. J Dawgs is a small, red, 10×10 foot shack in Provo right next door to Brigham Young University. If you have never been there before, make sure you keep your eye open because if you don’t know what to look for you might pass it. […]

Hot Dog Month- The Hot Dog King

Wow, I don’t know where to start, because there is too many good things to say. The Hot Dog King certainly lives up to it’s name. Walking into The Hot Dog King you are greeted with smiles and bubbly personalities. When it was my turn to order I was given a menu to look at. […]

Hot Dog Month- Wienerschnitzel

The other day I had this great idea that I would select a theme for every month and then once a week I would eat out at a restaurant that is in the category of the selected theme. I decided this month would be hot dogs. Why hot dogs? Let’s just say I was inspired. […]
