Utah Diners Guide

Tucanos Brazilian Grill

Guest review by Dan Purdon, Utah Food Maven I have probably been to Tucanos more times than any other sit-down restaurant in Utah.  Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of delicious restaurants here.  But when I get in that ravenous, carnivorous, wanna-eat-a-whole-side-of-cow mood, this is the place that comes right to the front of […]

Rooster Dumpling and Noodle Bar Review

Rooster Dumpling and Noodle Bar Review by Sam McRoberts 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, […]

Sammy’s Review

Sammy’s – Welcome to Burger Nirvana One of my favorite TV shows is Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, which is all about finding awesome little restaurants in unlikely places. Sammy’s in Provo is just such a place. Situated in downtown Provo, caddy corner from the NuSkin building, you’ll find a tiny little restaurant called Sammy’s. Specializing […]

Nicolitalia’s Pizzeria

Guest review by Dan Purdon, Utah Food Maven. I first heard about Nicolitalia’s from an excited coworker.  She grew up in New York, and she knew a thing or two about good pizza.  And Nicolitalia’s delivered just what she was looking for.  “It’s something in the crust, I can’t explain it”, she said.  Shortly thereafter […]

Stumpy Burger

Guest Review by Dan Purdon, Utah Food Maven My wife and I walk into Stumpy’s, the new burger restaurant located on Center St and about 300 West, ready for some good ol’ American burgers and fries. What I’m greeted with is possibly even more American than I imagined – as in, “old-school fur trapping mountain […]

Spark First Annual Bloggers Dinner

Review by Dan Purdon, Utah Food Maven Spark has some sharp people working there. I mean really sharp. What better way is there for a restaurant to get an outpouring of gushing praise from the internets than to invite dozens of local foodie bloggers for a free gourmet meal? And then you treat them like […]

Joe Vera’s Mexican Restaurant

Guest Review by Dan Purdon, Utah Food Maven I have passed this little Mexican place on Center Street in Provo many times in the past, but for some reason I never actually went in to try them out.  Maybe it’s because of their odd location on the ground floor of a big downtown office/plaza building.  […]

Chadder’s “Taste the Difference”

The slogan at Chadder’s is “Taste the Difference” and with one bite of their burgers and fries you can immediately tell for yourself that Chadder’s lives up to it’s slogan. When the new Chadder’s location on 900 East Provo opened up I received a special invitation from Chadder’s to come in and try out their […]

The Osaka

This last weekend we went with our really good friends to the Osaka. We had been talking to them about the Osaka for a few weeks and since they love Japanese food as well, we decided to take them there. If you have never been to the Osaka in Provo, it’s an overlooked little place […]

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. […]
