Kneaders Bakery

Reviewed By Go2theZoo - Layton, Utah

This was our first visit to Kneader's for breakfast. Everyone in our party ordered the all you can eat french toast. The pieces and huge and most of us only had the first plate that was brought to us. You do have to go to the counter to place additional orders, but then they bring it out to you. The syrup that comes with it is really good, but it would be nice to have another choice.

Tsunami Restaurant & Sushi Bar

Reviewed By pkeenan - Los Angeles, California

I can't say this is the "bomb" although you might not be able to tell since the place was packed along with a long waiting list. Salt Lake City must be starved for sushi. We made an OpenTable reservation and still waited 30 min to be seated. Sushi was "meh". I am spoiled...but the prices and the wait did not equate to justifying the cons. Keep looking my friends. There's bound to be some Buddist converted Mormon, Japanese Sushi Chefs out there somewhere.

We were looking for a great place to celebrate the upcoming New Year, and chose Texas Roadhouse because it was highly rated. Happily, it turned out to be a great choice! Our waiter was helpful and speedy. Because we had never been there before, the manager came to our table and offered us a free appetizer, their delicious onion blossom. I loved the choice of sides, which included the choice of a Caesar or house salad. I chose the house salad as one of my sides, and it was not only good but good-sized. The rolls served with cinnamon butter were freshly-baked and delicious. When the main dish came, I was practically full, which was great, because I ate as much as I wanted and then took the rest home for another meal. I ordered prime rib, and it was fantastic! As good as any prime rib in a high-priced restaurant, and it was under $20 (lunch prices). I will definitely be going back. A nice way to usher in the New Year!

Reviewed By Dennis0002 - Herriman, Utah

I have eaten here a few times and can say that it has some really great menu items. My favorite on is the brisket. The serving size is not to big but for the price it is fair. The restaurant inside is very well laid out. It does not seem to be as noisy as other establishments like this. The service is really great and seats are padded. Nice place to eat.

Smokey ribs brought out of it's your first time at this location. Pride of ownership. Great flavor. The 10 ounce rib eye steak and the grilled shrimp were our entrees and they were excellent. Best recommendation from visiting other locations is the bone-in 20 ounce ribeye. Best flavor.

We had the Pulled pork, boneless chicken, brisket & ribs. The pork , beef & ribs were the best. Next time I will get bone in chicken. I got the potatoe salad and didn't like it, it had some green Wierd stuff in it! My husband got the garlic mashed potatoes, they were good. They were out of rolls at 7:00 on a Friday night, so they gave me a hamburger bun, I made a Pulled pork sandwich, it was good. I would go here again.

The Pie Pizzeria - South Jordan

The Pie Pizzeria, a valley landmark since 1980, continues to reign atop the "Best Pizza" lists because of the business philosophy that consistency, quality, equitable pricing and great service are the keys to success. The Pie takes no short cuts! We believe that quality takes time. It would be a MIRACLE if you get your pizza in less than five minutes! We like to consider ourselves old school, no frozen dough or pre-shred bagged pizza cheese here. Everything at The Pie is made to order. Pizza dough is hand rolled and hand tossed the traditional way. We slice our meats, cheeses and vegetables fresh every morning. Our sauces and dressings are made in house too. We do this not because it's the new culinary trend, we do this because we have done it that way for over 35 years. To us it's more about the interaction than the transaction. Relax and let's break bread together...

I've been wanting to go to The Pie for years and it just never worked out till now and it was worth the wait. The pizza was amazing with tons of toppings. Can get super crowded but I was shocked at how fast the pizza was made. Go if just for the mozzarella. There will be a good chance you'll over order but hey, that just means leftovers. Mmmm.

Pirate O's

Reviewed By rnsnake - Riverton, Utah

This is the place to go to find imported candy and other items. Love walking into the cooler to find different meats and cheeses. Not to mention the numerous different drinks available. There is also a deli which has really good sandwiches. Most people I've seen there just shop for items, but staying for lunch is well worth your time.
The grandkids love going to Pirate'O's for the chocolate selection.
